John #280c

I found this green background a day before I shot this image but having waited a few times I couldn't find anyone who would contrast against the wall the way I wanted.


This time I was lucky as I spotted this guy standing opposite, across the road outside a shop - I asked him if I could photograph him and he was happy to come across and take part as long as it was quick!


I explained to John that I thought his clothes, hair and beard would be great against the green of the wall.


Ultimately I was really happy to be able to use what I knew would be an amazing backdrop and to get 3 different shots that all standout in a different way made me well chuffed.
