Your work is truly incredible! I love B&W photography. So clean and so simple in a great way. B&W will always be tops for me. Keep up the great work.

Wonderful shot!
Was he playing rugby perchance?
As an ex female Womens Rugby Union Hooker, I looked like this on many a weekend in my younger days! - Covered in mud that is :-)

Behind The Lens

Location
Tough Guy Challenge, Purton, near Wolverhampton, UK
Time
Winter, late afternoon
Lighting
Cold, Dull and Over Cast
Equipment
Nikon D2x, 18-200mm at 62mm, 1/160sec at f/6.3, ISO 100
Inspiration
Love nitty gritty portraits and the challenge of capturing everything in one single frame.
Editing
Minimal post processing. I shoot in colour and convert to monochrome later.
In my camera bag
Nikon D3 Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 G Nikkor 28-70mm f2.8 AF/D Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 VR Mk1
Feedback
Keep it simple both in terms of kit and your approach to capturing the action. “It doesn’t matter what subject you care to shoot, don’t burden yourself with too much gear. More often than not, one camera and one lens will get the job done. I try and capture colourful images first and convert to monochrome later. I always shoot RAW.
