I love the soft expression of secrets in their eyes. No one can know what theyre thinking about and damn these lovely portraits makes me wanna know!! The fact that our thoughts are ours and no one can ever know them unless we express them is really lovely and scary!
Two perfect photographs Scott, thank you. These two are really putting themselves "out there" which I love. Once again, you have renewed my faith that we too can put out the fashion goods. Happy Monday to everyone!
Maybe it's the lighting. You've always used natural lighting. Here it looks as if you've had some help, although I have no way of knowing for sure. It starts to be more about the photography than the subject maybe? And there are more than enough photography blogs. That said, I really like these portraits. They're terrific. You're excused for having a little fun, in my humble opinion. I don't see it as a loss of focus necessarily.
Love them. I have to say, the new red-orange lips that are showing up everywhere rock my world. I never thought I'd be an "orange lipstick" kind of woman but that teaches me never say never! It's a great trend esp on the heels of so much dark fatale red.
what did you meant by faint heart? He is not even a muslim. He is a Punjabi…religion derived from Hindu. Men are encouraged to keep their hair long n tie then up in a bundle (turban) If you noticed, he'd probably also have a tiny bulge in the turban-where he stores his tiny comb.
Oh dearest Sart, those are the best pictures EVER! So wonderful. A reminder why it is nice to be human, to live on this earth, to breath, to think. At least for today they stop me from just taking the leap of faith out of the window. Thank you.
No Way!! I just saw Darjeeling Limited two days ago! Wes Anderson is a genius for using this guy. He is the ultimate straight man that is humuorous to boot because of his timing. Love these shots, Sart–they have a hopeful/other worldly quality about them. W.A.'s beard jumps off the photo (almost).
I'm a scarf wearer, and I love how different these scarves are: the first, the most basic and simple knit, and the second, a more complex textured silk with different coloured threads. Both suit their wearers and draw out their characters. While she could probably wear his scarf, it wouldn't do as much for her as the one she's wearing – and it certainly wouldn't give the same beautiful, insouciant vibe. And I can't imagine him wearing her scarf, period. These photos show how how much is conveyed by what is basically a length of cloth.
When I saw the picture on the top, I didn't really think much of it. Pretty girl, ordinary outfit, from what I could see of it. And then I saw the second photo.
These two pictures work together beautifully as a diptych, and they really should never be presented in any other way. The similar backgrounds, postures, and lighting tie them together and yet the contrast is striking and unforgettable: the plumpness of her face and the line of his cheekbones, the lightness of her hair and the curl of his beard, her flashy red lips and his conservative turban. Even the directions that they are looking compliment each other.
I don't know if you meant to arrange them this way on purpose, but really, these two photos, as a diptych, not side to side or switched, but just the girl above the man is such a perfect arrangement and was meant to be just so.
