About the Image(s)

I took this photo of an Reenactor and I have no Idea any of the settings other than it was my Nikon DSL 3400. I think I used my 70 to135 zoom.
I have used the Photo shop Elements 2020 editor to crop, sharpen and to spot heal.
I was drawn to his fur hat and beard. He was an Interesting character and I thought he would make a good subject for a portrait.

Nice sharp, colorful portrait, Kat. This is a nice reenactor image, though I wish there were some of the reenactment scenery in the background to put a story with this man. I'm wondering if you had him pose?   Posted: 10/12/2020 13:35:43

Thanks.. for kind comments . He was with my husband in side of his tent. He was a vendor and the back ground is his tent canopy.   Posted: 10/12/2020 20:26:08

Nice clear portrait. Light on the face is great. Stuff on the left is distracting.   Posted: 10/13/2020 20:32:45

Very nice portrait, probably would work well in low tone or B&W too.   Posted: 10/13/2020 21:31:19

Welcome to our group! Great detail and texture. I would prefer more background too. Depending on your purpose, you can move a subject to better light and look for a good background. I am so used to photo travel definition that I always think in those terms where posing and most changes are not permitted.

You certainly live in a beautiful area. We spent a week in NE GA years ago and have seen a lot of NC where our kids went to college. Where in Ohio did you live? I have been through the state by train and car since i went to UW Madison.   Posted: 10/16/2020 16:09:34

Great seeing and editing. Like others, background behind his head is very distracting and you didn't leave yourself enough room to edit it out and that would be very difficult with that kind of hat.   Posted: 10/16/2020 16:24:58
