Photography Lovers Contest – Portraits – Dragan

In the happy pre-fork Steemit times, there was a photography challenge called Deranged Photography Contests by @derangedcontests. Well, it has been reincarnated at Hive through the Photography Lovers Community hosted by Hive’s @derangedvisions. This week, the topic is my favorite: Portrait!

I would like to introduce to you Dragan, a friend who has an improvised optician’s shop under the open sky, where he sells eyeglasses and fashion eyeglass frames at extremely affordable prices.

Those portraits served as a test of a Helios-44 M-5 58mm f/2 lens made in 1991, which is a beautiful portrait glass with a tons of character in itself. It is an old Carl Zeiss Biotar optical formula improved with multicoating. All the photos were taken at the fully opened aperture.

With a lot of street smarts and a cool attitude despite his misfortunes, in a happier life coincidence, you can see Dragan could easily be a global film star of Jean-Paul Belmondo class. And yet, judging by how much affection of women he has, he probably doesn’t lack such a headache.

It’s hard for me to chose one photo, but since this is a requirement, please judge this one for the competition:
