Fighting Emotions

Fighting Emotions

Something that I've noticed with people I meet and have caught in myself from time to time is a necessity to act and be who we are either expected to be and maintain a persona. Such a feeling can be especially common in our relationships, our ego and pride can get the best of us and so my goal for this project was to display both the front that we show outwardly and true feelings that lie underneath.

Ashlee Karin and Rapport

I am happy to consider her a friend in addition to a client. It is not always possible but if you can help it, always work towards building a good rapport with who you are photographing. It could be that I am sensitive to the look but I have lost count on how many photographs I have seen that were "ruined" by something in the client's expression. Be it nerves, lack of confidence or improperly built trust, the feeling your client is feeling inside will show in the final result.
