I took this using one of those clip on bed side lights as the only light source. The shadows are quite sharp, but i like the contrast.
Scanned from a BW print.

funny impression

I also like the contrast of shadows, it worked quite well with bed side lamps. However, the sharpness is too soft, probably it lost some after scanned. Anyway, an interesting POV, and a refreshing expression

hmm, i don't know how i missed you before. your work is really good. i don't like the hard contrast here as it makes this 'soft' girl seem kind of sinister. it's the blackness in her eyes and mouth that gives that impression. well i like her expression and the hair as the centerpiece. it strikes a nice balance with her face. well done.

Very good photo, the eyes... look quite scary.. but I like it..


Me encanta, tiene un punto entre histriónico y malevolo. Me encanta. :)
