This is one more portrait of jazz trumpeter Erik Truffaz.
I was trying to catch the music in the image or at least to give a feeling of it.
In the past I attempted to do several pictures of my friend while he was palying the trumpet and I always found it quite difficult.
Mostly because he is always in motion with so many expressions following the music therefore it becomes a kind of challenge to get a nice composition with not too much of blur.
Those kind of pictures are done in the same conditions as sport photography and it requires many right elements to contribute to a good result.
I am still not satisfied of what I have done so far.
This picture is an opportunity to thank the new members of my photography page on FaceBook.
I know that most of you came because of my Benaras-Varanasi pictures and Erik’s last album is about the Eternal city.
“BENARES” is an amazing Indo-Western fusion of modern jazz with Indian classic performed by Indrani & Apurba Mukherjee, Malcom Braff and Erik Truffaz.
“Yay!” is the title of a track from this album.
This is a link to a video (which is not mine) where you can have a feeling about it.
