Couple of great pics of Abdu taken the other day.

Lighting was strong late afternoon coming in through a 1.5 metre gap between two buildings and hitting the corrugated iron wall-paneling on a sharp angle. Didn’t have reflectors with me so I used a plastic lid with a bit of A3 size white paper to push some light into the near side of his face. End result is below. You really don’t need much more than some observant eyes to read the source of illumination and a bit of thinking when placing your subject in the best position to get what you want.

Second pic has a touch of watercolour to the background.
