8:00AM bummer class (to be determined, to be fair), 9:40AM potentially incredible class, 6:00PM guaranteed excellence. In order of appearance: writing a boring but balanced business plan, formulating an understanding of strategic thinking in business, and finally people photography.

This guy’s done it all, from the review of b-plans to… certainly some strategery, and plenty of portraiture over the years. I assure you, despite framing choices, he’s not a square.

Didn’t quite work in color, the skin tone went crazy with the flashes plus heavy adjustments, but it didn’t quite have punch in entirely black and white. And thus here, it’s a B&W image that’s been selectively toned. Interesting, and hopefully I can push this further as I develop a bit more software savviness.

Now to de-hang-re-hang an exhibit.
