I saw his wonderful glowing white beard and hair through the window of his shop, went in and asked if I could make a portrait.
Pierre agreed immediately. He was very friendly and patient. My wife and fellow photographer, Magda, chatted to him while I made several portraits.
He is a sculptor and a real craftsman with his frames. If you're in Ostend,in the Kerkstraat, pop in and visit.
I prefer not to use flash if at all possible, so these were all shot at 1600 ISO.
Now as promised here are some excellent websites for photographers
The big picture
And my friend David Toyne's new blog Digital SLR Photography Articles
All the best,
