I like I bet there are some story's behind those faces.
Ah ah, I love them. The Chinese always look like they've made a joke on you...
I'm sure the stories from the first two guys involve copious amounts of alcohol. I sat with them and we were drinking a Chinese liquor called baijiu (pronounced bye-joe). It's 110 proof and you don't mix it. One hour and three bottles later I had to leave while I was still able to stand but these guys .... nothing. I don't even know how long they were drinking before I met them. It was 10:30am when I met them though so only a couple of hour I guess.
A few more.
Powerful portaits there Colin, love 'em all!!!
And once again, I find your post processing work amazing
Hey Colin, it looks like you have that partially desatured look down pat. Nice job.
Yeah, those first two look like they have a few stories (and the proper measure) in them.
Thanks for sharing these. They're all great shots. Interesting faces. They must have gotten comfortable with you to be able to get that much in their face. Great job working your subjects.
They speak a dialect of Mandarin, and while I can't speak the dialect, I can understand them and they can understand my Mandarin (for the most part) so I'm the first foreigner these people have had the chance to speak with. Taking their photos was an after thought to just trying to talk with them for me. Very friendly people.
Some great expressions
I really like these. I mean really like these. What lens and effects did you use if you don't mind me asking.

Hey Deadbear, I used the SEL 50 1.8 on these. For PP I de-saturated the images and boosted up the contrast in places. I'm on holiday visiting my family in Canada right now and don't have access to my 'editing' computer so that's all i can really tell you right now
Well done. You captured their character as well as the detail needed in a portrait
Lovely shots and a great blog.
Which lenses have you been using for those? nice work
I used the SEL 50mm 1.8 for all of these.
wow, hey man, love your street photography, I personally really like to live with the Chinese, one of my best friends is Chinese but speaks Spanish very well, Ricky, from Panama but his parents emigrated from China when the civil war began in the 30's.
I really like the PP in your pictures, I hope already lost the hangover.
