This is the first of a project that to tell you the truth I’m not sure I’m ready for. I’ve been inspired by quite a few great photographers who have taken what they call a 50/50 challenge. Fifty pictures with their 50mm lens in 50 days. It is and always has been portraits that I get really jazzed about, so I thought I would do the same but with faces.
So, this is Jerry. I work with Jerry. He is one of the best people I know. You always hear the phrase, “he is good people,” and I never really knew what that meant until I met Jerry. He is just plain “good people.” I have a great deal of respect for him professionally and personally. I thought he would be a good subject to start with.
I toned down the saturation in Photoshop and Lightroom, very slight cropping in order to straighted the shot up a bit. That is about it on this one.
