Hi, my name is Reuben and I'm a student photographer. To be more accurate, I've just returned to photography after a wee break and am taking my time getting back into the swing of things and relearning many of the things I've forgotten. I am 100% self-taught.
I'm also reasonably accomplished with photoshop, not that my pictures are all photoshopped. I don't have a studio and so I generally photograph on location making do with what I have. I like to work with natural light and I particularly like to take advantage of the wonderful effects you can create when you have sunlight falling upon a subject with intervening objects making interesting patterns of dark and light. I also love eyes.
At the moment, the only model you'll find in my portfolio is cheeky elf (860296) who also doubles as my wife on the weekends... the reason for there being only her photos is motivated by two factors: (1) I have an extremely limited number of shots that I can upload and (2) don't like shots of the other models that I've taken as much as those of my missus'. Interpret that fact in whatever way takes your fancy.
I'm aware of my own limitations, but then I said it's been a long time. Feel free to take a look.
Please note I do NOT trade comments. If someone comments on one of my photos, it will prompt me to look at their portfolio. I will comment on pictures if I like them and for no other reason. I expect the same in return. If you like a pic, feel free to comment. Hell, if you don't like a pic, feel free to comment and say why you don't like it. The moral of the tale is that I only want honest comments. If I leave a comment on one of your pics don't feel obliged to comment on one of mine. If you don't like any of my pics enough to leave a comment, I won't be offended.
Incidentally, if you're going to leave a friend request at least tag me, so I think there may be a teeny-tiny reason and you aren't just collecting...
