Great portrait

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in a village called Valle del Cauca Vijes. It is a beautiful moment for me as a photographer to portray the joy of my uncle, an example of happiness.
It was taken at night, bouncing me one day because I was going to live in Ecuador. Vijes Before leaving, I decided I could not go without a picture of my uncle Rey.
The lighting was simple. Use a flash Neewer tt850 and translucent umbrella. It was enough light, which complement with light smile uncle Rey.
My camera nikon d7000 and my great friend nikkor 50mm 1.8, were in charge of keeping the portrait of Uncle Rey. A flash Neewer tt850 and his super in lithium battery with a translucent umbrella as bounce light. This was my team work.
I always considered my uncle Rey as an exemplary man, who apezar its various difficulties and physical accidents, keeps a smile, a joke and a cheerful attitude towards life. The man did not listen well, not looks good and still is an example of joy. I could not let this moment to remind my family that this man is an example to all.
The post-processing was simple. tone adjustment, focus, some retouching skin and light with my beloved dodge and burn.
In my camera bag
My light and great company team is my nikon D7000, my 18-105mm lens and my 50mm 1.8 and my flash Neewer tt850 with lithium battery.
To capture a portrait like this, I think we should try to capture the essence of people, projecting a profound message and allow the subject to be himself in all its splendor.
