The concept added to this portrait is inspired by the fact my daughter is at the age where she is in between a child and a young lady - pre-teen -
We all live in the present where shadows cast (the past) and unknown space (the future) combine to make the present moment.
Good use of negative space. The philosophy fits the art like a glove; although I do not myself think of the philosophy beforehand, the significant moment being far too fleeting for me!
I like the natural poses you achieve with your daughter.
Though I am far from a purist I would like to see a glint of light in your daughter's eyes, as in your two previous uploads. A reflector beside the camera might achieve that, I suppose.
I agree 100percent with your suggestion of trying to attain a glint in the eye, it can really add life and depth to the eyes - In most portrait shots I will try for this, and do prefer the other shot's, eye wise. The space(in frame) I wanted may be available at other times of the day as it is naturally lit and dependant on sun position etc... A reflector would also be a logical solution and I intend to follow up on this 1st photo-shoot possibly tomorrow.
The idea of her growing up is often prevalent in my mind and these several shots bought it too my attention more thus Past,Present,Future - scary!
