The Photographer

Madurai

I jumped in at a friend's place, a publicity-painter, and I met there this photographer of the old style doing mostly portraits in his studio at home with an old camera, film-negatives. I thought, why not a classical portrait of him ... not easy as photographers are mostly the most difficult people to get on a photo but still I think I mannaged him to bring out the most of this artist(almost 40years old). How I did ... crazy but it helps, I said to him: ' Look at me, what do you see .... the most beatifull woman on earth !!!!' and there he couldn't resist anymore. They are always in for a joke, you know, very playfull.

Like I noticed in my intro, I do feel that the photos belong more to them then to me, I copied the file on his friend's PC so that he can print it as much and as big he wants as a print A4 in India cost only 0,50 Euro, so most of the prints for others I do over there.

I didn't like to crop it tightly to make it incongruent as you see that far to often. So crop almost none, PP almost none except for the necessairy leveling.
