Where was I going with this picture?
This image was another experiment with off camera flash, shadows, and composition. Typically, I shoot in portrait mode, but I used a square frame. I wanted to accentuate the gaze in this photo. The square frame allowed me to align the gaze with diagonal of the frame. I also used a vignette to emphasize the eyes as the initial point of the gaze. I also wanted to emphasize depth in my face with shadows, but subtly. I used the tone curve and decreased blacks and shadows. I like images that capture the entire monochromatic spectrum. Thus, I raised the whites and highlights.
