This is probably one of the most trite takes on a female portraiture than an amateur can have. Yet, I have fallen helplessly in love with this shot. This may seem a bit biased for the ‘maker’ is praising the ‘make’, but I cannot resist it. Her eyes, that stealthy smile, the curves of her lips, the way she looks – they’re all so insatiably attractive that I could stare at it for long hours and yet feel unsatisfied. My POV on this may sound slightly ‘disturbing’, but it’s only a harmless, young heart with curious eyes who’s imprisoned by the beauty of simple things.
Yes, it’s got blown-out contrasts at points.
Yes, she’s got pimples on her face.
Yes, the shot could’ve been sharper.
Yes, the lights aren’t exactly perfect.
Yet, I am captivated. I feel too obstinate about this to change anything.
