The Old Man

this is taken from a tonal valued photo done in black and white so the dark skin melts into the black surroundings and the studio lite face meant the black skin took sharp white highlights from the lighting not as easy as i thought it would have been more so the large bags below the eyes defined by the black of the skin and white form the highlights the eyes are looking right out to the left so the pupils are to the left in the corner of the eye love to know you thoughts on this work
