Guitar Man   2 comments

Yesterday I had one of the best photography days I’ve had in a long time.  Photo ops just seemed to be everywhere and I’ll be posting many of the images over the next several days.

The brick wall and sidewalk along Central Market is a favorite place for street musicians to set up and play, and it’s a great place to photograph the right subject.  This young man was definitely the right kind of subject, and — bonus — he was a really good musician.  I dropped a few dollars in his case and took a dozen shots.  I was so pleased with what I saw on the camera’s LCD display that I bought him a coffee too.

I processed this photo in Adobe Lightroom 3, followed by Topaz Black & White Effects (Low Contrast Detail setting).  Then I brought back 30% color to give it a pastel hand-colored look.
