'Voodoo Henry'

Post by davechinn » Wed Sep 13, 2017 5:45 pm

When I first saw Henry on the streets of Sturgis, SD, (he was several yards from me) I knew I had to get a shot of him. I approached Henry as he seemed to be waiting on someone inside a shop. He was very willing to accommodate my wishes. I asked him where he was from and while I didn't write it down I cannot remember, but do remember his name. I was quite surprised of his soft spoken voice, it didn't seem to match his appearance, which is another reason to not judge someones appearance. I encountered several interesting characters while on this trip and always long for more.

Pretty scary, but also kindly looking. Dave. You always do a fantastic job on the eyes. As you once said, get them, you got the photo. Matt

A well done image Mr. Chinn, I envy your talent....all nitpik of course...you've lost some definition on each side of Henry's nose, most noticeable his left side, also a touch on the cheeks it seems, and there seems to also be some areas in and about his beard...the left elbow of the left skeleton stands out...you did post in critique and although I am unqualified to give critique I feel opinions are sometimes helpful...I know you are able to glean the bits of information received that are helpful to you..

Thank you Matt !!! Yes, I'll have to agree, he did have a scary appearance, but I have found the more of these characters I find and approach the easier it becomes. Eyes can be a critical issue and is one I used to struggle with and sometimes still do, but it has gotten easier.

Thank you Frank !!! Yes, I saw that some detail in the area of his nose needs attention. Not sure, but it may be a depth of field issue, I know the beard area is. Opinions are valuable as well and probably will be more so, than a critique, IMO.

Thanks Steve, no eyes no image, unless they have sunglasses on. Then its a different story. Also, thanks again Matt.
