The Pumpkin Merchant’s Son
May 8, 2012 • Photography & Travel
This cute kid with the big eyes I met while meandering down an alley way in Old Delhi in North India. There was a small but fascinating market place with lots going on. I love these places as one can often get many great photo opportunities. And an opportunity I got indeed. I found this kid seated on top of a large pumpkin and giving me the look.
His dad, the pumpkin merchant, saw I had a camera and told me to take a photo of his son. What more invitation did I need. So, I got up close, framed and shot. This photo has a Lightroom preset applied to it plus some additional tweaks that I made in this software. The Lightroom preset is called The “300” Look and is made by Matt Kloskowski. Matt’s got some great Lightroom tips if this is something you are interested in.
