Chic Critique Forum | Photographer Idol Submission
In the previous blog post, I used this image to describe my style and methodology. It was taken just this summer and it still lingers in mind despite other photographs I have taken. When the opportunity presented itself to share an image that exemplified my style I gravitated to this photo once again. It gave me great joy to showcase such a gorgeous girl in a manner that was true to her personality. Once I had found the light, everything else seemed magical. I love that her skin tones are just as creamy as they are in real life, that there is a twinkle in her eye, that she is wearing the hair accessory (versus the hair accessory wearing her), and that the composition draws you in and makes you pause. Who is this girl? What is her secret? Where is she going? How can that be me? When a photograph elicits an emotional response then it has fulfilled its purpose. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my vision via Chic Critique Forum (http://chiccritiqueforum.com/) and the Photographer Idol Contest. I hope that you stay tuned to see if it is chosen as part of the top ten!
