Reflected Beauty by Mariano57
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



Beauty and the mirror, where girls and women look at themselves: love or hate themselves in its reflection. Our superficial and shiny society. This was an unplanned image, a spontaneous pause taken during a photo shoot. Briefly the model admires herself. Satisfaction, approval, she likes what she sees. She feels empowered and beautiful. (rightly so). Although not the typical glamour shot, I think the light was magical, both natural in the back and a hot light placed high above on her right (Actually facing the corner of the shoot.) It worked out well.
Please comments and critique (good or bad) is greatly appreciated.

Fine art Studio Photographer and Physician, I am a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
My main interests are studio fine art figure work and HDR photography, although I love to experiment with Photoshop creations from time to time.
The greatest reward I get from this art is to be able to stir a memory, an emotion, a smile. In the end, touch a total stranger and connect.

    Great picture, and I think it is because she is looking directly at me in a mysterious way.

  • Thank you for your comment.
