    This is one of the first pictures I took with my NEX 5. It's my wife's uncle James, whom everyone calls Jiggs. I was trying to be sly, but he caught me taking the picture. This was taken with the in camera black and white before we got the newer firmware with high contrast black and white.

    DSC00965.

    Very nice portrait. I wouldn't have guessed that this was the default in-camera B&W.

    Nice picture. Looks like he's about to give you a telling off:)

    He's not the type that likes to have his picture taken :)

    He's had a very hard life and it shows in his face. I'd like to get him to do a sit down portrait but I don't think that will happen!

    I would love to see a motion picture when he tries to smack you after trying to get a candid shot on him :)

    Great portrait, and he's about to say "Will you stop taking my picture now?"
