15 Moody Portraits That Will Make You Think

15 Moody Portraits That Will Make You Think

There is no specific way to define what 'moody' portraits are, but when you see one you know it's under that category. It could be the lighting, it could be the tone (usually blue and green), or just the body form and expression. Whatever it is, it makes you stop and think. Makes you feel something. Makes you wonder what the subjects are thinking about, what happened to them leading them to this moment. Check out this set of great moody portraits found on Flickr.

i remember when Avery posted hers...she had a few in the same vein.. it was a dark time for her for those of us that followed Plearn and could sense the depth of pain she went through which made the image even more compelling.......
