A Man Of Character
Photograph - Digital - Orton
This gentleman was sitting alone during a concert at Curran Apple Orchard park here in University Place. There were a lot of interesting faces there, but his stood out to me. There seemed so much life and character to his weathered face.
This is an "Ortonized" version of the original. I wanted his face to be the focal point and with the original that really wasn't happening. I left people in the back ground because I felt it would magnify this man's internal solitude.
Using PhotoShop Elements 3, I chose some lighting effects to make him more pronounced and the other people in the shot more of the background and less obvious. I feel that I achieved my goal.
