Instant Twenty: Attitude

Can you tell how my subject feels in this photo?

My guess is that she is thinking ‘why am I doing this!’

I enjoy seeing her attitude coming through; it is more appealing to me rather than a false smile. Photographing people in general, if you don’t know them, can be hard, but if you catch them at a certain moment, when they are unaware, then you might capture something different…something real. In this case, I know my subject (my sister) so she is very comfortable around me taking photos.

In some cases, I find a easy trick is to call the person’s name then as they look at you, you snap the image! You never know what you will capture!
