Hi guys,

I created a photojournalism project called 52 Faces that's set to launch this week. The project is about getting 52 different people from 52 different walks of life to all define love and talk about how love has affected their lives. Of course, being a photographer, I also took a photo of each of them.

Here's the first "face", let me know what you think of the photo!

PS If you are interested in seeing/critiquing the full site PM me and I'll give you a login. Since POTN is a photo site I wasn't sure if this was the place for that. The intent for this post was to get feedback on the photo and edit.

Interesting concept. Hope the project turns out well.

The photo? I like the composition of it but the grain that is in everything (her skin) is distracting. If this grain wasn't so noticeable, it would be very good.

$.02 only

I like the graininess of the picture. Reminds me of the old black and white film that was "pushed". The kind of picture photo journalists of old would have used. I wish you well with your project, sounds interesting.

Agreed, I took it down by 30%. I need a little noise to match the site, but this should be better...?

I agree about the grain. It makes her face look dirty. Otherwise I think the picture could have been good, I like her expression.

Here's a version with no grain. I don't want to take it out completely, but I'm posting this for reference.

I like it as, without the grain introduced. But hey, it's subjective.

I like the full grain image the best. I agree that it has an old 'pushed' look to it. As an editorial image to go along with her story I think its the right way to go... IMHO of course.

And a very good idea for a 52 project as well

personally I like the no grain version, but either way it's a great portrait for your theme. Great wistful look. Great model. Great composition.
