|I explained in my first post, that I now know the value of line, and perspective in a B&W image. But what of a portrait? I do so love making portraits and relating to people. I learnt a lot in the 100 Strangers project with Peter, Ann, and Cara, and the two portraits I post today go some way to showing that.|
The second shot was on a bus, and I was taken by the wispy hair. Think how much better this would have been, were there any light to play between the wisps.
The first shot was at a cafe table, with the light streaming in from the right, but lighting up only one half of the subject's head. This was what 'made' the portrait from my view. The subject is my older brother, who has suffered a stroke which took out half his brain.
