Four wise Indians.

Been a while since my last post and I have gone off on bit of a tangent and have been shooting more portrait type images of late. This compilation is a set of photos I shot a couple of years back when on my Indian adventure. I have always liked these images as they were all taken in the space of about 5 minutes way up the Himalayas when we had stopped for a break and these four goat shepherds wandered in next to we were. I have wanted to do something a bit different with them and  after seeing Christians pelicans photos the other day I was inspired to try a similar approach as I really like the white back grounds. I am happy with the result but would be keen to know other peoples thoughts as well.

    Geez, there’s some character there.
    You tried Silver FX on these mate? TriX grain… mmmmm

      Yep, silver efex and all sorts of other stuff, probably overdone a bit but I like it like that. Trix grain ???

    Kodak Tri X, the best looking grain in photography! The Silver FX version of it does a bloody good job of copying it.
    Speaking of stunning B&W’s, you seen the Beatles photos on the Apple web site. Awesome! So well restored and reproduced digitally!

    Love it….great images Pete. Fantastic detail in the faces….I don’t think they’re ‘overdone’ at all.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Sandy, after not winning the landscape 500 I was gutted, He He.

    Nice shots, light looks good and so does the contrast. The white background gives it a very simplistic look which gives emotion to each of the portraits.
