Portraits from Hanoi

Another view of the portraits from Hanoi. This is one is and old guy. Shooting portraits is not difficult:

  1. Point your big guns
  2. Start shooting
  3. Pray that the person look at you

I was using D200 during my trip to Hanoi, thus it was at a crop factor of 1.5 which means that the longest range (200mm) is equivalent to 300mm on full frame. Which means that I am even further from the subject! Amazing.

Looking at my old photos, apart from putting a new round of flags on my old photos, but I also started to process the photo in a different way. If you ask me how I process photo, well – its different now and then. In fact, how I process really dependent on how I feel about the photo at that point of time. The same photo may look differently.

So here is a screenshot of the before and after

Below is another processing technique. In fact, this was taken from my old flickr side. I think it looks ok but it does not accentuate the character in the photo.

Old processing technique

Any – that’s all folks!
