The Hawaiian guitarist

By saltireblue    
Continuing a recent theme of musicians converted to B&W...

Outdoor concert. Middle of the day, strong sun overhead, definitely the wrong time of day for photography.
However, careful positioning gave a very good back-lit view and b&w is well suited, I feel.

Had a great time last week as Guest Editor - I thoroughly recommend the experience and it doesn't take that much time. Go on, have a go!

Off to visit a couple of world-famous photographers next weekend currently residing in the NE corner of Englandshire, so looking forward to spending Sun-Wed visiting a part of the UK I never got around to when I lived there.

Thanks for bothering.

Malc

Please do not contaminate any photographers in Englandshire. They are quit capable of contaminating themselves but back to your image today. I think it is as good as you have ever produced.

This is quite excellent, Malc: wonderful use of rim lighting and with such control over exposure.

Superb, Mr Salty.

Shorts (and T-shirts) weather in the NE corner of Englandshire does not begin until the first daytime frosts set in.

Quite probably too late Grin

Anyway, the image is superb Malc ... that lighting is spot on and I love the mono conversion. Oddly, the part I seem to pay more attention to is his face, not what his hands are doing Smile

This has worked out extremely well, looks like it could have been taken at an evening concert.

Have a good time in Englandshire, I know your visit is being anticipated with great delight. I had the pleasure of the lovely couple's company this week, in happy Hampshire.
