Photographer's Note

This is a father and son I bumped into yesterday whilst looking for shots. They were so friendly and we chatted for 20 minutes while they waited for the mother, and it turned out after a while we even had a mutual friend. Listening to the older man, Elroy, tell me about his time at university and the fun he had had was really good, not just for what he said but the way he said it. Although this shot is too bright in places, it really suits their happy mood and the conversation we had.

Tech: loads, the original was too dark. The only thing I didn’t do was crop : )
In short: Magic wand of their faces and clothes then adjusted in curves, then for the whole image; greyscale, tritone, adjusted in curves, USM at 60%. Added a frame.
