Henry

 

My neighbour Henry was very obliging when I asked if I could photograph him after many months of trying to pluck up enough courage to ask him.

 

I wanted to portray him in a way that emphasised his strong features and beautiful skin.  I used a multiple artificial light set up and black background.  I tilted the image and converted to black and white to make the image more compelling and dynamic.
