Portrait: Silhouette Expose for the background and let your subject fall into shadow. Shape is important this week.
It took me a while to get this one, and I don’t think I am quite there, but I like this shot. We had to go into London one day this week to conduct some business near Trafalgar Square. We thought we’d make a day of it and once our business was concluded, we spent an awesome afternoon wandering in the National Gallery. Ruebens, Renoir, Monet, Gainsborough, Van Gogh … what better inspiration could a photographer have?
I will keep working on this challenge as I can see where I could have made different choices to achieve my result, but I am happy with my chosen shot. Sometimes, you have to turn to the Masters to learn.

Is that adulation or envy I sense in the figure in the shadows. Mom >
Definitely adulation. LOL
