Here’s a little story. My friend Colin was a very keen photographer for many years back in the days of film, remember film? As life got busier for him his photography gradually slowed down until he wandered into our Gallery one day and we got chatting. Colin is now really back in the swing of picture taking, now once again he is a very keen and has become a very talented photographer. One of his loves is portraiture, he travels extensively for his work as an engineer and I have seen great portraits from many countries.
Colin is currently in India working and he has limited time for photography but he did manage to send me a set of images taken on a day off. I have chosen five to show you, they are in black and white and high contrast, I think they work well and really convey the atmosphere of that enormous and fascinating country. Anyway have look at Colins pictures below and I hope you enjoy them…
Technical stuff: Colin used Nikon D6oo and NikonD7000 cameras for these pictures. The lenses used were the wonderful 58mm f1.4 and the 35mm f2.
Below are two lovely portraits where the high contrast really makes the pictures leap of the page. Another one I really like is the last one, the dynamics of the body shape make for such a powerful image.
