Day #126 @ Photography Project 365

This is my brother-in-law. As mentioned in my previous post, he's doing his national service in the army at the moment.

I used my white curtains as the backdrop for this shot. The window, which is on the right has allowed the light coming through it so slightly over-expose this shot. I dialed exposure compensation up a little bit to blow out the background.

I used a "vintage" Lightroom preset that I downloaded for free from the Internet here. It really does make the photo look old.

For this shot, I used my splendid Nikon AF-S 35mm f1.8 lens.

You mentioned that he is in the army, so I'm expecting the German army?

Love the preset you used, looks very old indeed.

Well done!

Wonderful processing on this one! I like the over-exposed vintage feel of it. Hope you all are enjoying the visit!
