About the Image(s)

This is a portrait of a man from one of the tour groups i traveled with. He was in his 90's and kept up with the group. He always had a smile and twinkles in his eyes. I tried to show both his age and his personality.
Settings: f/8, 75 mm focal length, 1/250 sec. and ISO 180.

Cindy, I think you have captured both (his age and his personality) in a very complimentary way. You have rendered beautiful tones throughout the image and I love the twinkle (catch light) in his eyes. Well done! He looks like a fun guy to be traveling with.   Posted: 10/11/2021 16:14:22

Hello Cindy. I love this kind of portraiture. It's authentic and reflects both the true vision of who the person is not only as a facade or physical presence but as a soul. I want to do more work in this area and as close up. I also like that this kind of portraiture looks so beautiful in black and white. The eyes are amazing. I, personally, really like your creative choices.   Posted: 10/15/2021 12:40:40

Cindy, you have captured the spirit of this gentleman in your photo. I can feel his personality by the look he is giving. You captured the glint in his eyes which adds to the feeling of a joyful person. This is a very nice image as it shows his age (wisdom!) and his personality. I think making it into black and white highlights these qualities. Very nice.   Posted: 10/15/2021 18:08:59
