Well, your shot contributed to my education as I did not know anything about Magnum (I must live on another planet!). Hence, I began digging up the story with in mind the milk-crisis we are experiencing at the moment in France (and also something that began years earlier: the African milk-powder scandal). I am now able to weigh how multinational industries (British/Dutch Unilever in this case) are making customers happy (and investors even more). But, beyond the turn towards desire for immediate sweet-toot gratification, there are several layers to this story: economics (milk producers are being crushed, to be sure), and also increasing health-risks (judging from the growing numbers of overweight people around the world--while others die from hunger, explain this!). Can you tell me if there is a Magnum store in Greece?
Version 2 works well for me. The V perspective is ideal as we move from the man's seeming indifference to the dog's interest elsewhere, and the woman's attempt to communicate. The one thing I notice is the woman's right hand that seems to float against the dark background, but who cares, the energy of this encounter is captivating. Bravo! Paul
Great dynamic image! This strange shot accentuates the separation photographer/subject, the veil of course, but also the vertical post, as well as the impression the subject stands on the other side of a store windows (the hands) and desperately wants to communicate with the photographer. Paul
Bravo! Your photographs remind me very much of Nick Waplington's photographic eye whenever he shot weddings and interior scenes. I am certainly moved by your own comments, being invisible is certainly a major asset, but I also think you have a perfect eye to add emotion to your images. Regards, Paul
The crop below the model's elbows is necessary to concentrate on the subject's facial expression. This is, after all, what makes the portrait and you have indeed captured its very essence in that nudity and expression appear as inseparable. The result is a forceful presentation of individuality and overall mood. Nicely done.
Beyond the subject, obviously well caught, and rather nice, it is obvious that a candid shot can also result in a photography lesson. Here, we have an interesting V frame leading the eye to the right. The main subject is highlighted, whereas the one at the forefront creates the shots dynamic tension (contrasting with the subject on the left). Light and shadow are well balanced, and the white edge reinforces the candid nature of your shot. Very nice work.
Excellent portrait photography! Your subjects are ideally placed and take the attention, whereas your background acts as a secondary subject that in the end plays a major role to tell a story. What blows me away is the double eye-contact in this rather surprising scene. Great stuff...
