Pictures being sold near the Kapaleeshwarar temple in Chennai

A young man is framed by the pictures of gods and goddesses which he sells for a living. This photo was taken near the Kapaleeshwarar temple in Chennai.

Notice the difference in skin tone between the salesman and the subjects of the paintings he sells. The hardest part about taking street portraits in certain parts of the world is a similar unconscious assumption that the software in all cameras makes about the colour of people’s skins. This is forcing me to learn more about colour correction.
