About the Image(s)

This photo was taken in Dickens Fair few year ago. As I explained in last month, the lighting source is very low. The lighting source is from a table lamp only.
I used Nikon D800 with 24-120mm lens, Focus set in 120 mm, f/4, exposure 1/200, ISO 1600. I converted to sepia antique style, And did some noise deduction in Camera Raw.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Very nice image with the lighting only on the old artist. It is very sharp and shows her intent on her work. I think that your conversion to sepia is good and appropriate. I am glad that you added a boarder so that the dark edges are not lost on this black website page. A suggestion would be to clone out the bright spots on the right side as they really draw my eye.   Posted: 05/09/2020 10:35:49

I really enjoyed looking at this image. I am fascinated by the woman's face and the level of concentration reflected in it. I like the way her face is lit as well. The white garments or objects draw my attention from an image that is very well composed and captured.   Posted: 05/09/2020 13:37:43

I think it is a meaningful and rich story image, and the sepia antique style makes image looks much historically.   Posted: 05/11/2020 03:47:27

Hi Tony
Wonderful portrait using the toning is very much in context with the period it depicts superbly done.   Posted: 05/11/2020 14:43:17

Very nice image ! I would darken the white cuffs by burning if you are entering the photo in photojournalism. Or I would rubber stamp the pattern of the sleeves over them. It would also work to crop them out or at least most of them and then darken as suggested above.   Posted: 05/14/2020 18:02:36
