Eye contact and expression

These kind of exercises are so good in learning how to pose a subject and at the same time be aware of the effect that has on the image. A good friend was willing to pose for me on a sunny Wednesday morning. I used a diffuser to block the sunlight and white reflector to fill up the shadows and create a somewhat evenly lit face.

When doing this exercise I often thought about the sculptures I had looked at in the previous post. I realized how much influence looking at other people's work has on my own way of thinking. I learn so much, get so many new insights and develop a way of communicating what otherwise is taken for granted or just noticed somewhat unconciously. Here is the sequel!
