Photographer's Note

Second portrait of my cab driver.
I shot in colors and reworked the shot with photoshop in order to make it into B&W.
I adjusted the levels, selected my black, grey and white spots. Added some filters, red and sepia and eventually worked on the brightness and contrast to give it more depth.

I chose to present this portrait because of his hands, crossed over the meter like that. He accepted to pose for me, so I got three shots almost furtively. It is one of the first times that I dare to ask somebody I don't know to take his/her picture. I would like to do it more often but suffer from some form of shyness...
This might explain why most of the pics I took and presented are buildings, backstreets or nature... while I would really like to do more portraits, which is the genre I had started with...
I hope you like this version of my cab driver.

Thank you for reading
