    I started today a series with only black people under the title "Black is Beautiful"

    I hope to be able to make a collection of at least 15 people.
    Portraits are to be taken outside anywhere and eventually, I will be using flash. The lens used will be changing according to the circumstances and scenarios and so will the final look.
    Always in black and white however.
    The portraits will be close or far away depending on the situation/location and so forth. Not too many bonds.
    Photographs will be refined using suitable software program(s).

    I took this one in the garden. Natural light filtered by trees. An A5 is going to be offered to him. The guy is from Angola.

    Thank you Brent.
    For the tone I use a very light brown/sepia. It works very well with great results when printed.
