About the Image(s)

Taken in 2000 on a visit to New York and indoors at a jazz event. Scanned from a colour slide, it was a very contrasty image so I converted it to monochrome. These two faces caught the light from the stage lighting and what little else there was I darkened to create solid black. I remember it was taken with a Canon RT SLR using Agfachrome film but I have no other details as It was all done a long time ago and just found recently while going through old files. Must have been one of my early computer edits.

Impressive use of light. Love this one. I also love the usage of focus. Foreground in focus and background not and has less light. Good work.   Posted: 09/14/2021 15:53:52

A very striking image and worth the conversion from a slide. Well done.   Posted: 09/24/2021 09:40:51
