I love this shot. For me, it’s Savannah’s expression that nails it. Then there’s the sweet blend of earth-tones. But you keep coming back to those eyes… The tattoos… The head angle… The hair and the way she holds her arms… The geometry of the negative spaces her arms make… The nose-ring and the way the light hits her funky earring…
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts — gestalt. Yes, that’s it. Kind of. A great portrait is a magical thing — hard to quantify.
But I like it. And that’s enough.
Bye for now.
