Quiet & Reflective

Quiet & Reflective


More often than not, I aim to have my portrait subjects looking at the camera lens, but sometimes the emotional narrative is enhanced when they seem oblivious of my presence.

Perhaps she was a little shy, but more particularly she seemed introspective and had cut herself off from her surroundings. My only concern with this portrait was that the angle of view is that of an adult looking down at a child, and perhaps a lower viewpoint would have been preferable but then I would have interrupted her gaze. Unless you are in the studio, it’s always going to be a compromise.
