The Street Portrait

Some might call this Photojournalism. I don't. I asked this activist in Woodstock, NY if I could photograph him. Engaging him in conversation, I shot away with my Fujifilm S3 Pro and Nikon 55-200 VR lens at f5.6. This is a street portrait, capturing this man with his backpack, belongings and literature to distribute. Photo-jounalism is really more like using your camera to capture a story, that is written with an image rather than printed words.

I initially edited the photo in iPhoto, then Topaz Adjust and finally in Photoshop using the Screen Blend Mode on his face to lighten the intense dark shadows.

Enjoy, Jeff
