    Thumbs up A portrait is great if it looks like these.

    Might take a minute to load on a slow computer but wait it's worth it.

    You may not have access to the "celebrity" but everyone has a face.

    Here's what a good/great portrait looks like.

    The view that shaving (or any aspect of one's life) may be artful is not shared by all - because it is civilized, lyric and pure. These are acquired obsessions.

    That is a pretty standard 'fashion' style portrait.

    If you want to see how it was done, the first thing you do is look at the reflection of the lights in the eyes. Luckily, we can see the whole setup in Bono's sunglasses.

    It is easy to get if you have a strobe, an umbrella (or softbox) and a camera on manual mode. Here is a tutorial on how to make it happen:

    Although not as obvious, you can see the same thing happening in the other portraits. Just check out the reflections in the eyes.

    Ouch,

    Would have been my choice too
    In heavy competition at that but you picked the one with
    the hard centre

    Here's another link of "similar" work

    Jack Nicholson looks
    like he's waiting for you to pass the ketchup
    Yikes!
    Great face(s).

    You sir are the salt and pepper here.
    Always the better for what you add
    And just the right touch.

    My pleasure ... check out the dozen or so links (my favorites)

    here ... http://qazonline.stumbleupon.com/

    The links & most of the pics are "clickable" leading to bigger and better etc etc

    I think some will make you want to pick up the camera
    and others will make you want quit all together
    they're that good - IMHO
