The essence of great portrait photography is to capture an insight into the subject’s character, and follow through using light and composition to create an emotional impact. Here we look right at the subject, while he ignores us by looking out of the picture space.
The Art of Creative Expression in photography pushes personal boundaries, creating images with which resonate with character. The use of black and white in portraiture creates a dramatic quality, further enhanced by the use of natural light.
