Todd was gracious enough to allow me to shoot a few photos of him while we were visiting the preserve. Since I generally do nature photos, I’d like to get more experience with portraits and he was nice enough to be my guinea pig. He is the perfect model, don’t you think?
Todds looking great! Hi Todd 🙂
stunning once again 🙂 both the man and the pictures 🙂
THanks so much. 🙂
dun thank me so much Seth..u will get tired of it because ur pictures are worth complimenting every time 🙂
Yes! Todd is a wonderful subject. Great photos and he is a natural in front of the camera.
Excellent guinea pig! =p and beautiful background!
The last picture is the best one. I love the way the light works on that one.
He’s a natural! Really like the first photo.
Todd is a natural…as are you Seth! Great Pics! I love the one where he has both hands in pockets and is looking away!
Thanks so much. 🙂 🙂
What a wonderful idea! Todd is nice to want to be your model :).
The third one is really expressive; I also love the one with the colorized blue of the jeans :).
Hoping to travel this path this year and try outdoor portraits, too!
Au revoir, mon ami 🙂
Very nice portraits! You did awesome and tell Mr. Todd he was a great model!! Hugz, Lisa
Thanks Lisa. I will.
The third one is my favorite 🙂 He looks like he is in his element. Good Job!
Thanks so much. Nature is his element.
So nice to see Todd (and I agree with muffins&mocha …the third is awesome!)
I love the bottom one. It seems kind of mysterious, since you can’t really make out his features…
Thanks. 🙂 ..
Very handsome! People photography I find is so different from landscape but fun in a different way!
Agree Elizabeth. 🙂 Thanks.
Thx so much.
You may not be experienced, but I think you did a most excellent job! Way to go!
ello Todd! He is such a great model! Fab pictures.
Nice Shots of Todd!
Thanks for checking out my blog. That’s what led me here and what a find! Love the pictures and the name. Linda from muttshappeningnow.wordpress.com
Todd’s looking great! Good photos too! I especially like the last one! It’s got great atmosphere!
thanks so much. 🙂 ..
Yes..he did smile all the time you clicked and lastly he got tired and walk away..
Seth, I love your eye, great photos Seth. I’m glad your mixing it up more too, it’s a treat for us!
..Thx so much. 🙂
Todd just fits right in! I too like the last one the best. I like pictures of people and animals from the back. I don’t know why that is.
Interesting. 🙂 Thanks.
These are some great shots of your buddy!!! IT’s much more fun photographing with someone like minded.
Thanks Jasmine. Agree.
Such portraits open a window on your life and it gets more personal than nature shots. You are a talented nature photographer and it is true that nature is more photogenic than any other topic. But Todd is perfect among the nature you photography so much every day. So go ahead with portraits too!
Hot Toddy!! 🙂
Todd is pretty nice to be a model. He looks great! Love the background too 🙂
Thanks Judy. 🙂
Oh man, that first picture is amazing! They’re all awesome, but I like the first the best.

You are very welcome Seth!
sorry that tweet name wasn’t supposed to be in there! lol…I love your blog Seth!
THanks so much 1life196countries.
Thank YOU so much!
Thanks so much. 🙂 Glad you enjoy them….
Great portrait shots! I like how each one conveys a lot of meaning and emotion.
:)..Thanks so much. 🙂
You’re welcome! I think one of the hardest things about getting really nice portrait shots is to select a setting and poses that kind of convey personality and that aren’t “boring”. It’s a huge challenge!
I love the pictures. They do convey so much emotion. But you know what I miss? Your captions! (That’s not a complaint; just letting you know how much I appreciate the words you choose with your photos.)
Thanks. 🙂 Glad you like my captions.
Great shots. Portraits in BW seem to convey more emotion than color…loved the last one of Mr Todd walking away in a happy mood.
lol…Todd looks like he is enjoying himself…he is definitly a natural when it comes to being a model! great photos…
I’ll pass that along. Thanks Heather. Did you have a good trip?
welcome…I’m away till March 17th…I have to answer emails at least once a day so I visit a few sites while I’m online… 😉
