Nice capture. :) Reply ↓ I like the range of black and white hues on this one. I especially like the “texture”. It’s as if you can almost feel the furrowed lines on his face and the rough bristles of his beard. :-) Reply ↓ Good one…very expressive….emotions are clearly visible.. Reply ↓ lovely portrait. I like the hand placement. @Joshi – how do you like using a wider lens for shooting portraits. Reply ↓ another beautiful portrait. i really like how the eyes in your portraits have that twinkle in them and the skin, that texture:) Reply ↓ Fantastic portrait!

Nice treatment on black and white. Reply ↓ Quel beau portrait de cet homme pensif Reply ↓ Awesome shot and in this one I so love the title. Picture is speaking the words you chose for it! Reply ↓ I have to ask about your approach. He’s obviously looking straight at the lens but his expression is so genuine. I can never get such honesty in a portrait if the person is aware ahead of time that I’m going to take the shot. Even when they try their best to look completely natural, I can pick up the most subtle contrivances in their expressions and demeanor. You seem to succeed everytime; however, in geting the most naked looks on faces and in eyes; thos eyes. Steve McCurry is the only other shooter I know of that gets the job done this well. Joshi, how do you do it? Reply ↓ Nice picture Dan. I like the POV here, get a nice frontal shot of the man. Reply ↓ Superb shot, very intense. Reply ↓ Vraiment un belle attitude pour ce portrait. Reply ↓ Awesome pic and even awesomer caption :) Reply ↓ Beautiful capture, Joshi! Nice expression. Reply ↓ time after time u keep giving us great b/w portraits! i loved the caption to go with the image! Reply ↓ lovely as always. Your images have amazing clarity, it’s like I can count all the lines in his face. Reply ↓ Nice capture of the face of this man who s thinking about many things and why you shooted him .Great capture of his look Reply ↓ Now that is an intense stare, excellent shot..:-) Reply ↓ Nice shot… :-) Reply ↓ That is one penetrating stare! Reply ↓ बेहद जटिल मानव है । सुन्दर…. Reply ↓ Wonderful portrait Reply ↓ nice capture joshi… good pose by the appuppan :) Reply ↓ its like he is staring curiously out of the picture !! with an inquisitive question ..the lines on his forehead nice :) Reply ↓ Strong character and beautiful portrait! Reply ↓ Like the crispness of the black and white, and the questioning eyes Reply ↓ Really a splendid portrait. Reply ↓ Superb shot Joshi–fantastic intensity Reply ↓ you find some of the most interesting faces Reply ↓ Very compelling pose and the tones are fantastic. Excellent work. Reply ↓ your photography is sheer artistic brilliance. It seems as if you’ve painted the image rather than captured it. wow… Reply ↓ you are mindblowing- superb..simply superb Reply ↓ Amazing capture! Reply ↓ Now thaz what I can a clear & crisp attitude … Reply ↓ Amazing. But I have to agree with the comment above by themofman. How do you manage to take photos with expressions intact? Because a lot of times (nearly every time) people change their expression when they look at the camera. And Wadgaon Sheri? I live there. Now I will be on lookout for a guy with camera taking photos of old people :) Reply ↓ Awesome Joshi! :) Meri photo bhi lo kabhiiiiiii :P Reply ↓ Wonderful portrait. Love the high contrast.
