Well, he’s been focusing a lot since then and has opened his own photo printing and restoration business called Southside Prints, in Earlington, Ky. His love is shooting a broad range of photography from nature to portraits and everything in between. His camera of choice is a Nikon D3S and for this portrait he’s leaning on his Nikon 300-800mm f/5.6 lens.
Lighting was available light from a window with a white board to bounce some light back into his face to fill in the shadows.
I used Photoshop CS5 to do the post processing on this portrait, however, I didn’t do much other than adjust the levels slightly and a little bit of burning in around the edges of the photo and applying the Topaz Adjust “Simple Pop” filter. The photo was used as shot without any cropping.
