50 Perfect Strangers #2 | Phil the Guitar Teacher

Portrait Photographer Leeds

I was taking some shots of the Dukes of Bevington (Posted here) at the Cockpit in Leeds last week.  In the backstage area, I met Phil, who’s a musician & guitar teacher. The room was extremely dark and Phil was sat in the one place with a tiny bit of illumination falling on him from one side. I’d like to take credit for setting the shot up, what with the fortuitous guitar case and the excellent directional lighting, but everything was just in place without me having to do anything. For the photographers, I shot this at ISO 6400 using the spot meter on my XPro 1.
