Nice shot. A bit of a harder look with the light than your usual. Nice. Lends a touch of maturity and seriousness to her look.


Thanks for stopping in and having a look.
Prints of my work are available for purchase. Please contact me offline or thru PM if you are interested.

Thanks everyone! I adore her hand placement - different strokes for different folks. :)

Not saying it is a bad photograph. I like it and you know I am a huge fan and have defended you when I thought that you were being unfairly attacked. But I would like to hear/see why you think the hand makes the image stronger. I stated why I think it hurts the portrait. I would like to hear why you think it makes it stronger. A great photographer once told me this. Everything in the frame is helping your photograph and if it's not helping it then it is hurting it. Why do you feel the hand is making it a stronger portrait?

I'm not upset at all, I promise! Everyone is entitled to their opinions. For me, her hands help frame her face. They are posed in a way that add another element of femininity to the image and another element of interest. Not just another boring head shot. They pull the whole image together for me. :)

Those are stunning portraits. There's not a single thing I don't like about either of them.

Truly stellar stuff.

I'm interested, though, about how you said you blocked some reflection of light in the garage. Could you maybe post a photo of what you did?

Not responding for her but just adding my opinion :) The pictures are stunning and the hand - that some may think feels out of place or rigid etc, to me gave the appearance and feel of vulnerability, as if she was pulling into herself and trying to hide behind the clothing/blanket/sheet that she had on.

My perception and like most admirers of art I am probably reading way too much into it ;)

Ok Lisa let's try it from this angle. Why did you take the portrait. What as the intent?

Also I never got upset from your response. Did I say that? -?

I know this is not a good answer, but I just wanted to get my camera out and take some images. I have been in a slump since the holidays and just wanted to play around and see what I could get. My daughter is my go to model for stuff like this. That's about it. I didn't really have an end goal in mind other than to experiment a bit and see what I ended up with. :)

Sorry Lisa maybe my fault but you're not getting to the why I am talking about. What were you trying to say visually with this portrait?

Honestly? Just a nice, soulful, moody image of my daughter. That's about it. And I still love the hands - sorry.

It's your photo you can love or not love anything you like. I just really like your straight forward portraits so much that the gimmicks seem to take away from that. In my opinion the hands fight the real beauty of this (those windows to the soul) and if there is no reason for them to be there then why include them. I do like the other portrait you posted at the other site better and this one would do well with the PPA and calendar art crowd and is still better than many you see on forums I just think you have so much more than that in the wheel house. Thats my 2 cents. Take that for what it's worth LoL....

I do appreciate your thoughts! I love both images even though I'm admittedly biased and would probably love a blurry cell phone snap shot of any of my kids. Either way, I prefer the hands being there. I have plenty of similar portraits of her without the hands near the face and I like those too. I think it works here. That's my 2 cents on the photo. I'm 100% happy with it. :)
