Behind The Lens

This was taken after evening .

Inspiration
The look in his eyes
Editing
yes . I edited the picture in Adobe Photoshop . I pushed the Shadowa a little bit and increased highlight and sharpen the eyes . The picture was taken in colour . Turned it into a monochrome into post processing .
In my camera bag
Only one camera . [ if Nikon then D7000 , if Canon then 5D mk II ] A prime lense 50mm f/1.8 and one zoom lense . [ 18 - 140mm for nikon & 18-135mm for canon ]
Feedback
While capturing human emotion , one must need to keep patience . patience is the key for a portrait . One need to get acquainted with the subject . In this case i just sat beside the man over 1 hour and I offered him my cigarattte and gave him some tea from the near by shop . No expensive shop . just those small shops where daily pedestrian goes for cheap food . i don't take tea or anything like that . We were smoking and asked stories about his life and his anchestors . i always do this . I made this a habit if one doesn't mix-up with the subject , then one can't bring out the emotion , their feelings ... And just when he got lost exploring his anchestral memories of his childhood i found that glisten in his eyes and I knew this was the exact moment for the click .
