This is one of those “better to be lucky than good” shots. I was walking down the street and a cart was blocking part of the sidewalk and so I stopped and looked to my left. I saw this guy squatting in the street. I raised my camera and fired three shots off. To my eye, everything seemed to go together—his pose, the bicycle in front of him, the color combination and finally his expression.
I did not have any thought about this photo before and while I was taking it other than, “get the shot.”
Camera settings: Nikon D200, Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 at 70mm shot at ISO 200, f/4.8 and 1/125th of a second.
Lightroom—Set white and black points, added mid-tone contrast, added clarity.
