    A Little Night Walk.

    Impressive night-shots there Colin.......something that I have rarely tried, and when I did, the results weren’t the best......I can only stand back and admire. FUJI
  3. I found this presentation both informative and inspirational ......it is worth a watch as you enjoy your morning coffee.... FUJI

    Thank you for you kind comments both.....I like gritty and the Film-Noir look .... I convert from colour using Silver Efex.....then PS CS6 to adjust areas of tone in s targeted manner; and then move to sharpening as a final move. .. I have fallen into the trap of lifting shadows around the eyes, only to be told that it looks unnatural.....I like to retain the ...Street-Portrait....look.....much more natural than a studio portrait or one created using a flash or reflector..... I like to interact with my subjects whilst chatting to them, so trust is built up and they relax a little. Street Candids are a different matter.....with them I just aim then shoot, hoping to catch the expression whilst not getting caught.....all good fun my subject will receive an envelope of small prints to tuck into his bag if he returns tomorrow.

  5. The Singer of Blues is back in town, sporting a Hill-Billy beard beneath which he hides a smile for those who donate the odd change or get him a lunch. He doesn't partake of tobacco or stronger stuff...he is a genuine old style ... Man of the Road... A Have Guitar, must travel kinda guy....he has just returned from a walking tour of the West Country and then London....he doesn't like cities, much preferring smaller towns, like ours. He plays and sings a mean Blues in a distinctive country style...he looks and sounds perfectly at one with the world whilst performing. I always ensure that he has had a coffee and sometimes a snack of some kind.....he was very grateful for the scarf and gloves I gave him last winter...he sleeps in a tent wherever he can find a safe place. The hands close ups are for my project... FUJI

    Sophie Anne

    A very beautiful portrait John, exceptional mono rendering, but Rye is right, a glimpse of her upper body would be preferable to that sharp cut-off....use your hand or piece of card to cover the gap and you will see what we mean. FUJI
