A simple and dark portrait of my good friend Alexis. He's a veteran of the gaming industry and has worked for AAA companies all over the globe. An avid photographer he has been able to utilize the flighty nature of his professional career to take photographs all over the globe. You can check out his personal site over here!
I've included a set of close crops of finer detail this time. I work on all my photos at 100%-200% especially when managing the more complex areas of the shot. When you roll all the way out you should be left with a finely cultivated image of clarity and realism. I prefer this method, and although time consuming it does offer significant advantages over blanket filter based processing.
Thanks for looking!
