Default Some portraits and lucky shots :)

I was shooting some pics today at school. and here are two nice pics.
Both girls are classmates of mine.
Hope they don't mind that I'll show you these pics.

Katrin:



Vanessa:


As you can see, they're both busy in doing homework or some other stuff. The best situation to take photos of people without them realizing that. (well, almost )

okay. one more pic I just found.

As you all know, german people like bear. but not only the men.

This was a lucky snapshot on a x-mas party last year.




EDIT:

One more pic of Steffi.
Also a lucky snapshot. She didn't want me to take photos of her and held the glass in front of her face.
I think her eyes shine throug very well.




EDIT2: 50 hits and no reply?

I like the photo of Vanessa. She looks like a younger version of an actress who plays Polly in the british cop show called "The Bill", I dont know if will have heard of this show but it is very popular in England and here in Australia.

I think portraits are almost always better in b&w, and these are really good ones. Then again, how could the beauty of Steffi's eyes come through unless it were in color? Nice work, Kex!

Thank you both for your nice comments!

aladyforty: I don't know "The bill". But sounds interesting.

Nice shots, Kex ! Both bw and color ( a great color balance !).

Wish I was still attending the high school :lol:

Maybe, maybe a little out of focus the second and the third one.

Just a curiosity : is she drinking this Weizen ?

thank you, guys!

@brtsergio:
yep it is "schöfferhofer weizen" she's drinking.
you're also right with the focus. But I'm glad the pic is almost sharp at all. it was some kind of snapshot and she didn't want to look like this.

Default Nice shots!

I enjoyed the Black & White images. I always do.
What process did you use to create B&W in PS?

That's a lovely set of informal portraits. Will you be giving the ladies copies, might make them cooperate in future.
