The first of well, at least two, possibly more, shots from the Notting Hill Carnival. I’m pretty sure he had no idea this was being taken, and the look on his face is definitely the one he was surveying the carnival with.
I’ve started shooting RAW images, rather than the hi-res jpegs I’ve been using up to now, and yes, I know I should have made the switch sooner, because fuck me can you get so much more out of them… It does make it rather harder for me to explain what I’ve done to this image, though. In short, I’ve leeched a little colour from it, and darkened the shadows a bit. I still can’t decide if I’ve overdone it on the right hand side of his face, though.
