Another high contrast pic of a child street vendor in Laos. This is actually the brother of the Sales Lady in Laos, they were both manning the same shop.
To see the other pic click on: A Sales Lady in Laos
The reason I chose to use high contrast is because:
- the originals were taken on a cloudy day and I didn't like the flat exposure
- I found the dirt on their faces distracting
- lastly, I've always liked high contrast b/w's and I wanted to try it myself
post-pro: converted to b/w, cropping, curves to increase contrast, noise

Grainy and contrasty, and downright engaging and interesting! You make these things that are so often "flaws" into tools that help establish mood and personality and context.
