photoblog image From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

MAUREEN ON MONDAY 2/2

The second of two portraits I took of Maureen in the early 70’s., this one at a studio session at my first camera club. I have always like this portrait, and, if you look back to last Monday’s post you will note the change of hairstyle, I prefer this one to be honest. As a point of interest Maureen will also have been taking photos at this studio session as she was a member of the Club and had her own SLR.equipment and entered competitions, sadly that more or less had to stop when Chris arrived in 1976.

This is lovely, Brian. The lighting and contrast are great!
This portrait turned out better than the last one Brian... i like Maureen's smile and you had captured more sparkle in her eyes....petersmile

A wonderful portrait of Maureen, love the smile and the smiling eyes. Too bad she gave up/had to stop photography.
I love this, Brian...and especially knowing that she, too, was into photography back then. Has she thought about picking it back up...now that Chris is supposedly no longer in her way??? smile

A wonderful portrait - an expressive face with the dark eyes! She should pick the photography back up!

A fine portrait Brian.

So Chris was a more intriguing hobby, than photography. Then Chris must be quite a chappie. You would know that one's career and the children peak in terms of time required. That was when I laid down the old SLR equipment. Only picked it up in digital format again, some 15 years later.
She has fantastic eyes Brian, I can imagine you were hooked when those eyes caught you.
