  1. Very good portrait – I like the way you sometimes break “rules” or go against what might be routinely expected – as here, with the arm bright but the face far more in shadow – which makes for a far more interesting and curiosity arousing shot.

    This shot makes me ask myself – is he someone who keeps to the shadows, what is he thinking and who or what is the target of that sidelong and speculative gaze? Good stuff! A

    • Thanks Adrian. He is a Japanese fashion designer and has very expressive face and hands. I really enjoyed clicking him :)!

      Regarding rules, I don’t know many rules of photography. I just look through the viewfinder and if I like what I see I click. Purist may object to it but I take it as a creative liberty. What are your views?

      • My views? Well re your words “Regarding rules, I don’t know many rules of photography. I just look through the viewfinder and if I like what I see I click. Purist may object to it but I take it as a creative liberty.” >>> I am totally in agreement, 101% with you all the way!

        Bring it on! Creative liberty! We look through the viewfinder and if we like what we see, that’s it! I’ve always said this, and I will never stop saying this. And maybe that’s one of the things that make many of the images that you and I capture good – I’m sure of it. Its very good to be in contact with you, Sonali. Adrian

      • Thank you Adrian! This is my on going argument with some of my local photographer friends. I was really worried when I exhibited my photos recently as they broke few rules! In few of my photographs I had kept the subject in the shadow, breaking a rule of keeping the subject well lighted. Shadow can be a subtle way to highlight as I read somewhere. Fortunately for me my photographs were well appreciated, mainly by painters ,sculptors and people from the art world!

        I really enjoy creative liberty I can take with abstract photographs. Hope to do more of them.

        I enjoy our interaction too. it is always nice to know that someone out there understands exactly what you are trying to project,present and show by your photographs.Thanks Adrian.-Sonali

      • Hi Sonali – yes, I think the answer here is to keeping listening to those people from the art world, because your photography is certainly artistically orientated.

        As always, if a photo works, it works – the “rules” are just guidelines to keep in the backs of our minds, but CERTAINLY NOT to be constantly or rigidly employed! Adrian

I will be happy to hear from you..
