Trying to copying a master

Here I tried to copy Andreas Feininger famous portrait of a photojournalist for Life in 1951.
A friend of mine just got a leica body so we where tempted.
Well I think I do better to just do my own thing and don't copy but you learn a lot just to look to the old masters.

  2. Nice to find ideas and inspiration, but even better to be yourself, as Wong says, follow your heart.

  3. I think you did a fine job, and I also agree wit you that studying and looking at the masters is so beneficial. If you do mot try new things, you will not grow as much as you would like. Am glad to see you experimenting. genie

  4. Wow! You get two Genies in a row...

    I think that your interpretation is intriguing. One never knows how a technique will work out unless one tries it. Very nice.

    Wishing you and Mrs. C a wonderful Christmas.

  5. Nice shot S.C. I have been lucky enough to start my photography book collection early on and I have a few great books. I love looking at what everyone else is doing and try to put a new spin on it. Have a safe and wonderful Christmas ....
