Guest Photo of the day: so real


so real, originally uploaded by shamalidi.
I've never been a huge fan of the traditional smile-at-the-camera portraits. They can be beautiful, but they don't capture the soul of a person the way something more candid and raw does. This photo by Alina Samalova is a great example. A lot of Shamalova's pictures don't do much for me--they're a little too experimental--but this one sticks to the fundamentals of classical photography while capturing a very interesting pose, expression, body language, body shape, and costume.
