I presume it does not have to be B&W, Doc. Nice shot.

By all means, portrait is a portrait be it B&W, color or partial color or whatever...

That is a pretty high bar that you two have set.
Sury, good to see you putting the 135mm to work.

This is an old one, from the time I was living in Paris: Monsieur Charles AznavourMost probably Nikon 808s and Nikkor 135 f2.8 on slide, scanned and processed with Hisptamatic TinType app on iOS

Pako, that is very nice. I like the processing also. I recall that my best buddy bought a Nikon N8008 (F-801) in the late 1980s. It was his first AF SLR. He still has it and has never gone to digital. Well, other than the occasional smartphone photo. :lol:

Superb Pako, mostly because I am a fan of Aznavour.

The 8008 was definitely a great camera, and only the F100 was better IMHO (I never really work with F4/F5 bodies)

I decided to scan old negatives and slides, so more to come ;-)

Very neat potraits everyone. :D

Good to see this very specific thread come to life again and a 'welcome back' is in order to Dr. Harout. : ) Hope all is fine.

Very inspiring photo subjects and processing from Pako, especially.



Thanks for sharing,

Not really formal portraits, and taken with my 8 year old on my back, thru the Tamron 70-300. I wish I'd had a longer lens.
