Guest Photo of the Day: Marokko 2010 - Atman


Marokko 2010 - Atman, originally uploaded by wsanter.
Black and white is all about light, shadow, and texture, and this image masterfully captures all three. I love the way wsanter has photographed this child with the face brightly lit against a dark background--but not completely dark, giving it a greater sense of three-dimensionality and space than a solid studio dark background. The dark coat emphasizes the bright face even more, and adds wonderful texture, as does the dark hair. And then there are those brilliantly dark eyes, so large, looking up at the camera, and that Mona Lisa smile--what a gorgeous portrait!
