Mr. Whippy

I’ve always contemplated about this photo when it came to grading and getting a good look to depict the picture which made me always pass to the next, as I always ended up not being satisfied with.

Forgetting the grade however, I think this is a beautifully genuine captured moment, depicting an ice cream man/seller (possibly Mr. Whippy himself) in his comfort zone, anxiously waiting for his next customer.

I’ve always had a sort of ideal grade to this photo, which was a milked, desaturated look, giving it a vintagy feel, which I managed to put a slight bit in the overall look, but exposed the center frame by enhancing the reds and adding some vignettes to direct the audience to the subject.
