Old Kenyan Man

By | Depth of field, Portrait | 11 Comments

I took this image with a 70- 300 manual focus lens that i does not auto focus well with my Canon 20D so when i do get a nice image like this its rather rewarding..

I like the soft depth of field and the contrast that i have boosted it too… The mans face has so much detail and the way he is posed just shows wiseness…

The fact that his eyes were closed also was interesting and went well with the old feeling.. not that all old people sleep just though it was nice…

Little Wasini Island Boy | Kenya

Thus was a litle boy that i thought was pretty sweet playing on the old boats

This was a litle boy that i thought was pretty sweet playing on the old boats. I visisted Wasini Island, one of the last islands before you arrive in Tanzanean waters. As we were all leaving the island after having a lovely seafood meal this boy was watching all the tourists leave… Its such a wierd contrast as he lives there and its his home but for us visting is was a tourist atraction. Its quite powerfull as there is a sense of pain or anger in his eyes… What can we do about it?

This photo is of my best friend Phil Downing and his lovely girlfriend Katy Slater. I was playing around with layering effects and one of the ones that i noticed was the overlay with gaussian filter… this creates a nice soft focus effect. I then made it black and white and realised it complimented the faces really (as is the case with black and white). I then toned the colourful areas to keep that bit of querkynes that i feel reflects a certain side of them both. Please Comment on it…
