Homesless busker in Leicester by 


I have had an interest in street photography for a while not but not really dipped my toe in the water until now. I spotted this busker in my home city of Leicester and he was more than happy to let me snap away. The lighting conditions were tricky but after some cropping on the computer and post production work I now have an image I am happy with. Bracketing used for the photo shoot and I used the lowest exposure then converted to black and white using Aperture. Taken with Nikon D700.
