Wearer You Gone?

ISO: 400, Shutter speed: 1/50, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 43mm,
Captured: 26th November 2005, 11:01am,

I spent the weekend helping a friend with a spot of photography for the paper he works on. The paper in question is The Henley Standard and he'd very kindly swung it with his news editor for me to go along and take some photos for a weekend.

This was taken at a viewing type thing where some redevelopment people were allowing people to see a map of what they were redeveloping (great details, eh?). The chap in the photo seemed to be against the redevelopment, but to tell the truth I was concentrating more on taking photos as it was the first job of the day. One thing I did catch was that he described himself as "once of this town."

I did take a slightly sharper photo of him where he was smiling but I thought this one was a better portrait because you can see the map in the background and he looks a little sad about it.

There's a weird yet good effect there that almost makes it look like a composite. The side lighting is a little harsh but I still like it.

What I like about your shots, is that there's always some background information about the whys and wherefors. if I was being arty, I would suggest that the set up shows that Peter Adams is turning his back on the new development. Also quite interested in his cravat pin.
