I met this fisherman last December 2016, at Chittagong.
The man didn't like city life although he was surrounded by it. He tells me that the only thing he cares about is his boat and the port.
We had lots of talks about many things. He is a good fisherman.
RESPECT because of this dedicated souls at the sea, you are making delicious dishes with fishes.

The presentation of this piece is marvellous, straight on and he is looking right at us. The photo is not sharp. In portrait photography it is critical that the eyes are pin sharp, then all other sins can be forgiven. Nipping off his fingers is a no no. But, your point of view , coming down to his level was the way to go. I bet if you gave him a copy of this he would be thrilled to pieces.

thank you very much..
I wasn't much into Composition that time as I'm now. I didn't even knew camera settings like I know now...
the original photo was lost. I send one on social so I managed to download this.
yeah I show him the images. he was really thrilled and asked me if I'm from NEWS channel 😂😂
I interviewed him before ive mentioned earlier

I agree with olga it could be a tad sharper and also that hand should have been more complete and also you could crop some of the top in this,what does work is the human connection between you and the subject and the fact you conversed with him is a big plus,nice one that

author says:

Yup...
Wished I had a time machine.. hahah
