Busking In Bath
I took a trip to Bath, a local city near to my home, with the sole purpose of doing some street photography. I wasn't doing really well as my courage had deserted me but was getting a few. Walking down through the main street I stopped to sit on a bench to chew on a pie and have a drink listening to a busker. Then I suddenly realised what a great character he could be to photograph, so I caught his eye and held up my camera and with a nod from him I was off shooting. Dave Hum is the guy's name and when I got home and edited the photograph I sent him a colour copy and got a great reply with a jokey remark about it: "The effect you have added has a great texture and enhances the detail (although my left hand looks mighty old!)". He did put it up on one of his sites.
So the editing—when I sorted through the photos, this one sprang out as ideal for a bit of Topaz Adjust and thats how it stayed until Joseph started this site and I instantly remembered this photograph. So I found it in Aperture and created a B&W from the Topaz Adjust edited one and used the preset High Contrast (Grade 5).
