This chap sold beautifully carved soapstone lanterns in Fatehpur Sikri (more of which later)……..and yes we bought one…….and yes we haggled…….but not very successfully:

    Stunning portrait, Mark.
    What great light on the face. Did you bounce the light off something to get that even colour under which looks to be shade?

      Thanks Vicki…..I didnt have my reflector with me in India….so its all natural with a bit of PP magic.

    I really love this portrait. I meant to comment earlier. The reflection and light and soul in his eyes shows.

    Now Mark as you know I am primarily a landscaper but anyone can appreciate a brilliant photograph and this is just that, the guy is engaged with you and the light is top notch – arguably your best shot ever
