Sam by Sasha Onyshchenko

Working with experienced models sometimes means working with all photographers she or he shot with in the past and often it takes a lot of effort to make them fit my particular "molding".
That's why I really enjoy working with people who have little to no experience at all in front of the camera.
Sam was one of them. I approach every session as portrait session and focus mostly on personality and I think that the less experience the subject has, the more genuine and intimate their portrait can be.

How it actually turned out is, as always, for viewer to decide.

Agree on the description ... but sometimes unexperienced models can express something different and let the photographer be more creative.
