Stranger 93/100 - Emile (Explored)

I decided to walk around in Soho just after lunch yesterday and had picked out my location and all I needed was a stranger. Emile was walking by and looking very stylish (not surprising as he is a phd fashion Student).


He agreed to let me take the portrait and so I moved him to my location which I had specifically chosen to get a bit of the backlit type shot. While taking his pictures, I did notice that the rim of the glasses was cutting through his eyes and so I had him reposition them. He seemed to like the shots and as I was fumbling around for my details he said don't worry about and was off on his way. So I doubt he will ever see this portrait.


Although I was more than happy with the shot, I decided to use this one to learn some photoshop skills again. I will divulge what I did a little later in the comments section.


Anyway, thank you very much Emile for allowing to me to take your portrait. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the
