Guest Photo of the Day: Айя

Айя, originally uploaded by Konstantin Mitrokhov.
Konstantin Mitrokhov does a wonderful job of capturing very naturalistic photographs of his subjects. They're not elaborately posed; there are no expensive backdrops; and most appear to be lit with natural light and maybe a few reflectors. This shot isn't even posed "well," as the knee in the foreground is a "distraction," which I put in quotation marks because, for me, it's exactly that "flaw" that makes this more than just a run-of-the-mill snapshot, and instead a great portrait of a real person with a real soul.

Update: this photo is no longer visible online.
