Goal was to find a subject and focus on that image to produce a dramatic composition. I chose hands and decided to capture working hands. I produced them in camera raw conversion to a custom Acros, emphasis on contrast and detail. I was inspired by @Gary A.'s contrasty street images during his film journalist era and @Derrel's direction to pickup the 70's hedgecoe books. All images were created with a Fujifilm X-Pro 2, 60mm 2.4 macro. Comments and improvements welcomed. What I learned is it is very difficult to wrap your mind into a human part and try to represent it beautifully. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Man that hands were attached to 7. Lady weaving the old fashion way.
