Giancarlo 7/100

This nice gentleman is a local mountaineer who agreed happily to be photographed. He told me the story of part of his life that I won’t report here to protect his privacy. Again a pleasant encounter with another “stranger” on black, please
Great picture, the lines in his face tell enough stories, so keep the rest for the two of you for the privacy :) again, great portrait..

fabulous character portrait

regarding your question about what editors I use.....

I use open source photo editors. Open Source software is free and state of the art. Open source is like a cooperative of developers who build fabulous software . I also use Open Source for office apps e.g. libre office rather than miicrosoft office.
For photo editing I devop my digital RAW files in either Rawtherapee or Darktable (they are like Lightroom or should I say Lightroom is like them ) . Once developed I send them to GIMP (similar to Photoshop) for things like cloning or if you are very geeky layers etc. If you don't shoot RAW you can edit your jpegs in GIMP. For all thinks "open source " digital photography take a look at this website https://pixls.us/software/
You won't be disappointed. The mono conversion in the image above was done using the GMIC plugin for GIMP

I've seen a few people do the portraits of a stranger. It fascinates me and I've thought about doing it myself.

@kali66 Thank you Kai, I will. That challenge is so stimulating and interesting. Justin my chords. Only doubt: Louise @Weezelou says that we should mention which photo inspired us, but that is not always the case. It’ more the idea or the atmosphere, not a single photo inspiring me! So is the reference to a particular photo necessary?

@golftragic @tstb13 @photogypsy thank you. It all depends on the character of the photographer, knowing that one can receive a denial would hurt you?

@caterina i saw a few of men with beards, but usually as long as there is a link in subject matter, technique or style it counts

@mbrutus glad to see you’re back
July 21st, 2018  
What wonderful character!

Great portrait.
Agree with @kali66 Would definitely make a great entry for the artists challenge

@4rky thank you. I will check the photos of the book to look for one that I could pretend has inspired me…

@caterina Wouldn't fuss me one little bit.
