trying to be someone I’m not

When I started photography in earnest I tried to do all the things you’re not supposed to do while taking a photograph – over expose, shoot from the hip (literally), crop people’s heads, arms, feet off, etc. in an attempt to be different. Now, I see this photo – it is in my eyes, exactly what I was trying not to do. But hey. At least I know I can do it with aplomb. It’s a straight forward, posed, well-lit, well-framed shot. Why can’t I do it all? (Plus the client wanted it) Thanks to the beautiful Tessa Kiwanuka for posing.
