Week 6 Photograph Assignment

This weeks challenge was to get a monochrome image. For this shot, I had to return after the first photo session with Grace. She was super helpful. The first session I did not use a flash and afterwards was not happy with my results. This shot, however, I am happy with! I like the composition with the angled metal Grace is holding and the angle of Graces head offsets this well.

There is a silky silver smoothness to the skin tone. Yet the flash I used gives some contrast and depth to her face. The eyes are crisp and directly focused through the lens and she has a relaxed look about her. I have burnt the outer edge round her head to ensure the bright parts are not distracting. Her hand is slightly out of focus, yet face and eyes are sharp.
