The photo, 2342, was taken from a birds-eye-view perspective which helps to add interest to the subject and to alter the perspective.
The photo, 2202, plays with eye contact so that there is a sense of connection between the subject and viewer.
The photo, 2228, breaks the rules of composition, specifically, the rule of odds. There are two people and two hands creating a binocular-shaped form. There is nothing between each of the two sets of two, but it still attracts your eye to the main subject nonetheless.
The photo, 2159, plays with the lighting by having one side of the subject’s face illuminated and the other in the shadows. This creates a vivid image for the viewer to look at.
The photo, 2338, was a result of the subject moving out of their comfort zone. The position he got into and the expression he had was extremely uncomfortable for him, but it produced good results.
The photo, 2353, was a candid shot of my subject’s hand when they were watching a tense moment in a movie. After they discovered they were being photographed they reacted negatively, but at that moment, they were in their own state of mind.
The photo, 2293, focused on the subject’s hand in particular. By focusing on the hand you can see wrinkles and other signs of aging. Without seeing the face, you can paint a picture of the person.
The photo, 2318, shows the subject obscuring their own face with their hands. Whatever it means is up to the viewer’s interpretation of the image, but it does help to focus the image’s subject.
The photo, 2211, is a photo with a wide angle, but it is so empty and that helps to reflect upon the subject themselves.
The photo, 2197, shows the subject in a tense mood, or perhaps talkitive, depending on your interpretation. This expression is what makes the image.
