Mike has been a blacksmith for several decades. He worked hard in his life and I wanted to show the harshness in his portrait. I decided to used a honeycomb strobe to emphasize on half of his face and I photographed him while he was looking into the direction of the strobe.
Enjoy the image and keep on creating great images!
I photographed the City Bridge, a pedestrians only bridge in Wolfsburg, Germany at night time. I had a monochrome conversion in my mind right from the beginning. I created three different layers which I then combined in post production.
