Miles is incredible when it comes to turning a digital photograph into black and white. His subjects always look great. He`s a briliant photographer, but what makes me crazy is knowing how good a portrait can look on screen... This is my latest attempt. I guess Miles has spent a few hours in front of his computer - but I have too, and I`m not happy. The more I adjust and tweak, the more freaky it gets, and in the end, everything I did has to be reset, and this is the result...
I`m not unhappy with it - I wouldn`t have posted it if I was, but I know it could have been better... AAAArrrrgggg!!!!!
(...I`m talking about computer-skills, here. Don`t want to offend the model...)
And I`m not licking Miles`back either. I`m just frustraded.

Everything went great last sunday. It rained for a few hours, so we had to cover the photographs with plastic, but we were prepared for something like that to happen - no problem. The print wasn`t usable, it was too grainy, and the colors looked way too cold, so I had to bring my old framed one. You can see it here. It`s almost dead center in the upper photo, black frame, greenish colors.
I noticed this cool man early on. He wore sandals, a hat and a Hawaii-shirt, and looked a little like Neil Young. It wasn`t him, but it was Dan Young, and I asked if I could photograph him. (After Jeanette promised to never call me cute again if I dared to ask.)
He said OK, and after I had told him where I wanted him to stand, he turned his back to me, and I photographed. Then we started to laugh, and I asked if I could take a couple of frames where he was facing me...
He was very friendly, walked over to my photograph of Anton and said it was funny, and then sat down with us in a tent where he looked trough some of my prints. To me, this was bigger than the event.

Got my print of Anton today. It is the one I`ll hang on the wall this sunday. I was very happy when I saw it at the store- both because it was done, and I didn`t have to worry about not having anything, and because they managed to place the photograph exactly where I wanted it on the paper. It`s 50x75 cm, and the photo itself is 40x40.

When I got home, I saw that the colors didn`t match. It`s supposed to be much warmer, but I`m unsure if it is a problem. It might just be my mind trying to screw things up. This is a great chance to show a photograph to a big crowd - everyone that shows up are into photography in one way or another...

I feel like the underdog in situations like these, but it doesn`t bother me.
