p.1 #1 · Peter from Nigeria


Artist, musician, sound engineer ... from Nigeria.

I have a few concerns of my own bout these pictures, but I'd like to hear yours.

I did a simple B&W conversion in Lightroom, used the graduated filter for the corners in order to darken them.
Avoided sharpening or clarity ( I'm kinda over that stage ... at least I try not to move that slider)
Taken at f1.4.

Regarding the text on his shirt, I asked him if he was alright with that ( his shirt and he was wearing it at the time, but nevertheless).
I realise the text might draw attention, especially in #2 ( one of my concerns), so I consider to remove/darken it. On the other hand, it's "him" and with the limited dof ...

I did try to "translate" it. The traditional "Coca Cola" or "Coca´ne" shirts, didn't match, so I hope it's not an offensive thing ( they'll be removed if so).

My Arabic isn't good these days but if I'm reading it correctly it's saying Hashish.
I'll get my wife to read it for me, her Arabic is way better than mine.

Number 3 for me shows a fun side of him

I like the drama in #2. I don't care what it says, it adds interest.

There is nothing wrong with moving the sharpness and clarity sliders. Not using them is equally as bad as over using them.

True ... nothing wrong bout using them ... but sometimes there's this tendency to apply it, just because you can.

Hmmm ... "not using" them is equally bad as overusing them !? ...

Good job. Great lighting and good expressions. #3 is my pick as it captures personality, but I like #1 too.

Velu- I have no issues at all with these fine images.
They are obviously done with a purposely-chosen style, and the viewer has the option of liking it or not.
Me? I like the style.
