Active Portrait

I thought about how I was going to get an active portrait when the light and weather aren't great and everyone is away on holiday. I figured indoors would be best. Ideally someone working.  I popped into the Jewish Tailor up the road and asked if he would mind being my model. As you can see he was a very willing model. I asked him to just continue working as usual.  I feel I have captured the look of concentration that really is him.  I've used a high ISO as a flash would have been too distracting and there is too many pieces of cloth the light would bounce off.  Perhaps a reflector would have just put a bit more light onto his face, although I don't mind the shadows here.
