3.13 - "Solid" 

This image is part of a series that I created where I wanted to reflect dark emotions of internal suffering without doing a dark photo. People often associate darkness with moodiness and I wanted to do the opposite and try to showcase mood and anguish without the use of a dark color palette and instead I chose to create a dark mood using a completely light color palette and set the mood only via the expression of my subject. I wanted to showcase anguish/sadness/pain via my subjects expression. Basically what you see on the outside doesn't always reflect how we feel on the inside.

Fantastic work, great color palette and amazing model / expression. The wrinkles on the shirt do distract me a little bit but of course this isn't a showstopper ;-) thanks for sharing and good luck for the contest

This is great. I love that you took a different take on the lighting. Her pain and anguish really come through.
