How About That Mohawk?

I just happened to log on to ActiveRain today for the first time in months and the first thing I saw was Dick Greenberg's 2017 Photography Contest post.

Upon reading the post, this picture just popped into my head and I knew this was going to be the photo that I entered.

The Back Story

2017 ActiveRain Photography ContestI lot of people don't know that I am a former licensed hair stylist and salon owner and as such, I figured I'd use my skills and talents for a worthy cause.  I took part in an event last year to provide free haircuts. This guy was not a recipient of the haircuts given on that day, but how ironic that he showed up at the haircuts in the park event with this precision-cut Mohawk.  

Luckily for me, at the time, I never went anywhere without my Nikon D3200 and this was no exception (even though I knew I was going to be busy cutting hair).

This is one of my best street photography shots yet and although I've been saying this for over a year, it WILL eventually find its way contained in a frame and hanging on one of the walls in my house.

Great pic Charita! Not many people can pull off a mohawk, but he's doing a pretty good job of it!

On him the Mohawk looks good. On me it could get me arrested or at the very least, laughed out.

Thank you Dick for the contest.

 

He is rocking it.  As for you Joe, I couldn't see you get arrested and with a great barber, you wouldn't be laughed at either.  Mohawks are worn in so many diffent ways.

That Nikon D3200 takes a great photo. I especially like the way the subject stands out with a crisp image, while the unimportant stuff in the background is all a blur.

He definitely wears the haircut well, and looks great on him.

I love it Charita Cadenhead . You taking this pic sounds like something I would do.  What a great picture for the contest.  Good luck!

Cheryl I don't always get my depth of fields right on my camera settings.  Sometimes I just have to do with Photoshop afterwards, but if I'm not mistaken, I was able to blur out the background with my camera settings for this one for the crisp image.  Thanks for commenting.

Rebecca he's rocking it like a rock star.

Thanks Kat.  I think the cut is perfect for him.  Not everyone can pull this off.

Thanks Brenda.  I'm not a quick with my iPhone camera as I am with my Nikon.  When I have my camera with me, I'm always sitting on "ready."

Nice shot, Charita. Great subject and composition, too. You may be critical of your camera skills, but they look good to me.

Absolutely Sharon.  Not everyone can pull off a look like that.

Thanks, Elva.  I appreciate it. With me, sometimes it's luck and other times it's skill.  But I'll take a good picture anyway I can get it.

Charita, I want to know so much more about this man! How very unique he is. And I like that he's just a bit to the left the way you shot it.

Thanks, Gayle.  It's funny how some pictures tell a story while other pictures evoke the sense that there is a story to tell.

Thanks Elva, Georgie and Patricia. When you have a good subject, the picture almost takes itself.
