The energy of the mind is the essence of life. ~ Aristotle
I love life. Life is up… life is down… Images can reflect that emotion with a little planning.
Long beautiful hair lends itself to the movement of the image above as does the fun, playful personality of the subject. I focus on the subject, subject turns to the back, swings hair forward and just feel the fun. I played with the cropping until I decided that this was the most pleasing angle. Focus is tricky and the shutter was as fast as my flash sync would allow – 1/200. If using a darker background I back light the hair to show separation and depth. 5.6 ~ 1/200 ~ Canon 5d mark 2 ~ 70-200 L lens
