    I have already explained many times its position here. Let me remind you again :)

    1. I really try to fine (as far as their abilities) to dress up every day, but not every day I have a photo shoot. Sometimes a very good combination of clothes remains "behind the scenes".

    2. At the photo session (95%) I spend 15 to 45 minutes. Generally it occurs in the middle of the day. In the place where I am at the time.

    3. A very small percentage of photo shoots (about 5%) actually go further - when I want to do something interesting and interesting place.

    4. I do not spend on a photo shoot a single cent. So as part of my business related to photography - something I always find an opportunity to do a photo session quickly and easily.

    5. If I can easily make a good (hopefully) pictures, and do it quickly - that's why I have to do worse than I can?
    It's like to be able to consistently run a hundred meters in 10.5 seconds, but why try to run this distance in 15-20 seconds. Why? Everything on that I can go - it's run a hundred meters in 11, that would not run at full capacity (which most often occurs at a photo shoot, figuratively speaking) :)
    Why would I try to take a picture worse than I can, if I find it easier to do since I'm already used? Absurd...[​IMG]

    In general it is very boring and strange topic for discussion. Paradoxically it all originated. I do not want to continue. And I hope you too :)

    Let us return to the subject of this thread! [​IMG]

    Victor, I think we all agree when I say that we do enjoy your high quality photographing. I try and get good shots as well. I think good light and interesting surroundings enhance a good outfit. Lately I've been lazy though, and have mainly been taking iPhone pictures at home. I'll try and get some better pics next week on my way to, or from, the office.

    By the way, last summer I was in Stockholm, lived in a hotel in the old town. And completely forgot that I could meet you. Maybe this summer I'll come again :)

    A breath of spring, perhaps. I won last week's Friday Challenge (remarkably enough), which was all black and white and severity, so, as the party responsible for setting this week's challenge, I chose "Get some color in your life!" as this week's theme. To that end, today's "greenery".

    Suit - BB MTM
    Shirt, tie and PS - BB
    Cufflinks - DVVS, New York
    Shoes - Harris, via Barney's, Boston
    Scarf - Ede & Ravenscroft
    Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center, NYC

    You should never do worse that you can simply so that other people won't feel insecure. I enjoy not only your photography but also your clothes and I would love to see you keep doing what you are doing. However, I don't necessarily think it's boring to talk about the subject of how and why we tae the pictures we do. It's always relevant to talk about the medium through which we pursue this hobby.
