Call me Al


My English teacher (Nice) Mr. Hawkes kindly agreed to be a model for me! He has great character in his face, and combined with his beard and glasses, I was very pleased with the results - especially with this one. Using a single source lighting set-up, from the right, the original image was brightly coloured, and a tad too bright. In Photoshop I de-saturated it, and altered contrast and brightness levels, to achieve this cinematic look and feel to the shot.
