While using the name of the camera as the title of today’s Photographer of the Day portrait is unusual, that also describes this carefully rendered study in black and white of a bearded man with piercing eyes. The circular catchlights are the telltale mark of a ring light that creates a flat, almost shadowless look. The result is a visage that stares unflinchingly at the viewer. Is it a peaceful expression or something sinister? A great portrait asks these questions.
