4/4/05 - Jane Goodall
ds20050404_0131a1wF Jane Goodall.jpg

Washington, DC

Jane Goodall spoke today to members of Population Connection at their annual Capitol Hill Days conference. I was asked to photograph the talk, as well as two other events during the conference. Due to a condition that causes her considerable discomfort from camera flashes, I had to shoot with the available light in the meeting room -- fluorescent and too dim -- a bit of a challenge.

Without a doubt, meeting Ms. Goodall and hearing her message was the best part of the assignment for me.

Beautiful portrait of one of my favorite people in the world! I grew up with her books and spoke to her when she gave a talk at the Strand here in York. She is such an incredibly warm person and a true champion of wildlife.

A splendid portrait. I appreciate this black background version - though the original isn't too distracting. This is an elegant study. Congratulations.

Simply perfect, Dennis. Perfect lighting, composition, cropping, you name it. Love her intensity -- you captured that, well, um, perfectly!

I think you did a wonderful job of using the available light. Very nice portrait.

Excellent photo, Dennis.. I love the composition here.. perfect moment caught. I'm really impressed at catching that in low light..

i actually prefer the original rather than the ps one. :)
with the ps one, unless it is small size, one could see the flaws easier with the difficult lighting.
