  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    HI

    Here's my first go at street photography in Borough Market at the weekend.

    Big issue seller, declined magazine as already have one, but offered him my loose change if I could shoot his picture to which he jumped at.

    I just turned him around to face the hazy muted sun a bit more (it was lunchtime and quite high)

    Sunlight only (overcast)
    white balance cloudy
    centre weighted

    Nikon d7K
    85mm f1.8D

    f2.8
    1/200
    640 iso

    version 1 with a vignette:

    version 2

    any comments gratefully received (I am very new at this)

    The vignette works better for me. I'd like to see it in B&W though ideally!

    Would look brilliant with the sea in the background as I would imagine a person like this to have 40 years fishing experience and many scars from fishing hooks!!

    I think they are great! Check out my big issue seller a few posts down...Theres something about them, you can tell their story in a photo more so than other people and there is a definite sense of pride in his face don't you think? Or is it just me..
