Despair


(50 mm, ISO 100, 1/15, f 1.8, window light)

I love that his face tells a story. You can tell that there is something very heavy weighing on his mind. This is my shot for "Emotion."

The window light that I used for this shot made for a really great dramatic look. All of the vignetting was done in camera so the only real post-processing that I had to do was switch it to black and white.

CC Welcome.

Nice shot! He could totally star in the next twilight movie...no I'm not a junkie, but the light skin...dark light...I'll stop ;) Great shot though.

Have I ever told you that your husband is a hottie? I'm sure you're quite aware of that by now, though. :) Great photo. I love the lighting and the setup. He really looks sad and lonely. I think that the whole thing focuses well on his eyes, which speak volumes.

I love this shot. The eyes for me really pop and I like how it looks like he is having the stare/glare. Just like you said he has something on his mind!
