Calling Elvis

I was going to write again but I got distracted when I started to go through what I was going to write about. I saw this image and new I had to edit it. I know he’s a guitar player in a band I shot. What band? I have no idea. I just liked the image. It’s like he’s channeling Elvis and the sunglasses are classic Elvis style sunglasses. I know because I own a pair. Plus the Johnny Cash Live At Folsom Prison shirt just makes the image for me.

I had to color correct the image to get him to not be urine yellow or Martian red. I liked the 6×6 medium format style crop just to keep him in focus. I went to town on the sunglasses to really bring out that reflection in them. For those of you wondering the technical aspects beyond the edits, Olympus EM1 at ISO 4000 and a 75mm (150mm) at 1.8.

I could not be happier with how it turned out.

Enjoy.
