A quiet smile

This portrait was one of a series that included an earlier post, A private moment.  In each case there is an enigmatic quality about the sitter’s expression


With this image I experimented to discover whether moving the face within the frame affects the viewer’s interpretation of the smile.  Obviously, the captions below are purely personal suggestions.


1     Leaving friends following an amusing incidwnt


2     ‘I’ll close my eyes and you hide’.


3     Secretly watching from an upper window as her child plays happily with playmates.

  1. I like this one, as well as the other one, and it does change when it’s placed in different parts of the frame.

  2. Interesting to see how the mood changes both with the size of the face and its position within the frame. It’s exercises like these that really bring home the importance of composition in creating photographs with meaning. Thank you!
