Writing with Light

Listener Funded Public Music

One of the best things about hanging out in Jackson Square in the French Quarter is listening to the street musicians and they are a talented bunch. They’re also make for fantastic subjects.

To process this image I used Topaz Detail to bring out a bit  more detail in the performers face and beard. I then used Topaz Black & White Effects for the monochrome conversion. Don’t forget you can use coupon code ELPHOTO to save 15% on all Topaz products.

  3. Wonderful captured… 🙂

    New Orleans and maybe most of all the old french part have a very proud tradition of music – and even the long way from Denmark, (country)musicians are traveling on “pilgrimages” to this area for inspiration… 🙂

    • You’re absolutely right. You can find musicians on almost every street corner and Bourbon Street at night is a veritable dance party.
