Portrait of the day: the barber shop owner: a perfect subject for the Nikon Df?


As I am eagerly awaiting the official announcement of the Nikon Df (Nikonrumors), I came across this retro looking portrait. Welcome to the past, nothing in that place indicates that this photo was taken on Sept 26th, 2013, it could just as well have been taken 20 years earlier.
Now wouldn’t it be great to shoot a series of places and people who live a simpler life? Look at A. Gonzales, a 70+ retired champion boxer and correction officer, who couldn’t just lay back and do nothing, he opened a barber shop instead. A charismatic guy, full of energy who loves life as he knows it. I thanked him for allowing me to take his picture and asked him for his email address, he just laughed and said he doesn’t have email.
Shot with the Nikon D800E and the Nikkor 50mm 1.4 D wide open.
