Before I discuss today's photo, I would like to answer a question posed on my last post: ". . . if you had not had all the comments for change would you have anyway? Probably not. Why? Because I was not thinking about the photo of Terry as a "street portrait" and because I think of my blog as a vehicle to post work that I consider more "work in process" as opposed to finished photos. But, then again, maybe I would have gotten there someday!
I find photographers are usually poor subjects. This gentleman was intently photographing everyone in sight, but then, when I pointed a lens at him, he immediately reacted. His face pretty much lost all expression and he even seemed a little flustered.
I wanted this photo to be about his expression—hence the use of black and white.
I must admit, I blew my change at a Nikon sponsorship by not getting the camera in focus—too little depth of field. Oh, well, maybe next year.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 at 200mm shot at ISO 800, f/4 and 1/350th of a second.
Lightroom—Set black and white points.
Photoshop—used nik Silver Efex to convert image to black and white.
