Minimize a composition for more impact...

This is one of my favorite photos from New Orleans... music, great food and Mardi Gras! I like to look for "local flavor" photo opportunities when traveling. In addition to photographing wide angle shots that tell the whole story, try minimizing a composition for more impact. This close up of a street musician has a nostalgic look with the well worn guitar, and warm tones throughout the image. To accentuate the vintage appearance, I used Topaz Labs Adjust Film Collection, which adds grain and brown tones for an aged timeless look. Enjoy your travels! ~ Deb
