Behind The Lens

Location
The Island of Madeira
Time
Early afternoon
Lighting
Natural ambient lighting
Equipment
Canon DSLR with Zoom lens
Inspiration
This man standing on a corner in the capital city of Madeira just caught my imagination.
Editing
I did some cropping, turned it from colour into monochrome and did quite a ,lot of dodging and burning to get a guttural effect.
In my camera bag
Canon DSLR medium Zoom Lens
Feedback
Keep your eyes peeled and don't be afraid of upsetting people by taking a quick snap shot of them while out and about.Most people won't mind.
