Photographer at a wedding reception.  For further info, and an unusual portrait crop,  see the People 19 post, here .

Clash of the Nikons!  Here I’ve used Silver Efex Pro to emphasise the structure (i.e. detail) of the cut and patterning of the clothes, the wristwatch and the camera, which makes everything sharp and crisp, almost standing up out of the picture in 3D.  The subject is again anonymous, save for the designer stubble and the strong hands familiarly manhandling the very solid and businesslike D2x.

There are two strong lines at varying angles in the picture.  One heads up towards 11am, from the wristwatch and through the camera to the top of the flashgun.  The other heads up towards 1pm, following the white shirt up between “the gateposts of the two cuffs” to the camera and the man’s chin.  The presence of these two axes brings some sense of movement and action to the shot – this is not someone posing with his camera, but rather someone actively in the process of taking photographs.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.
