Guest Photo of the Day: Samanta Bernardes
traditional portraits, too, and very good ones, as well as some creative fine art nudes. But this series is what really caught my attention and my imagination as I looked through his photostream. The use of color on this model's face makes for a very beautiful and intriguing image, and the palette he has chosen is inspired, with the brighter colors emphasizing highlights and the darker colors creating artificial shadows. The blue of the lips perfectly matches the eyes, the hair cascading down the side frames the picture perfectly (but, being on only one side, looks better than if it were on both sides of the image), and the tight crop draws attention to those gorgeous eyes. All around a great shot.
