Closer – Portrait photography

So this is a small series of portraits, I love taking close up portraits, just I think the details in each persons face is unique and interesting not to mention the eyes! As for the processing is just another way of my style showing a dark tone for a black & white portrait just away from the usual boring stuff.

الصور التالية عبارة عن سلسلة من البورتريهات، أنا دائماً أحب إلتقطا بورترية بشكل مقرب جداً، أعتقد أن التفاصيل في وجه كل شخص مميزة ومثيرة للإهتمام بدون أن أذكر العينين بالطبع! وعن المعالجة هي تعبر عن طريقتي في معالجة الصور البورترية بطابع داكن للصور الأبيض والأسود بعيداً عن المعالجة التقليدية المملة.

I tried to show off some the corner of the cafe & Abo Ali while working.

أبوعلي قائم على مقهى قديم منذ أكثر من ٦٠ عاماً، المقهى الصغير يفتح أبوابه في ساعات الصباح المبكرة والذي يقع على أحد الشوارع الرئيسية في القطيف بالمنطقة الشرقية والذي يعتبر هذا المكان معلماً مشهور بين السكان المحليين وبالنسبة للبعض فإن هذا المكان هو للقاء والتحادث ومعرفة اخبار البعض والمجتمع، الكثير من كبار السن اخذت عليهم العادة بالمجيء هنا بشكل شبه يومي والمقهى يقدم الشاي مقابل ريال واحد فقط على الطريقة التقليدية المتعارف عليها في البيوت والمجالس. حاولت أن أظهر بعض زوايا المقهى وعمل أبوعلي في هذه الصور.
