As a follow up to Khmer Boy in Black and White I will present a different style black and white image. It is a Cham woman, the Cham’s being an ethnic minority living in Cambodia. Photographed during a village visit, I kept my camera on her after an initial portrait shoot to try and capture a candid expression. I especially like her face and hand.
Captured in sunlight, this image therefore has more contrast. I have developed the black and white with a much heavier processing enhancing the contrast and texture of her face and hands. I am interested in hearing your opinion on this image and the black and white processing.
