Sorry That She Came

My impression. There were a number of fashion models that walked a runway in this warehouse basement I understand that models generally look serious but to me they ranged from gloomy to haughty.

1/160s f/4.5 at 70.0mm iso5000 full exif

A very strong and expressive portrait. I really like how you composed this image with her off set and looking towards the closer side. I think that adds some additional edge to her expression. Terrific DOF and lighting in this strong capture. VVV

Just read Bright Lights, Big City . . . this model belongs in the movie! Great personality capture.

An excellent portrait Neil, she looks like her mind is elsewhere! V

Great portrait in B&W. ~V

I have to agree with Carol - she has that model look. Her hair reminds me of days in my teens using rollers to get the curls to go right :) I like how you've composed the shot and I bet she'd be happy with it V

The final lines of one of the Sex Pistols' songs comes to mind:

"Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
Ah but now
And we don't care
We're pretty a-pretty vacant
We're pretty a-pretty vacant
We're pretty a-pretty vacant
We're pretty a-pretty vacant
And we don't care"

Looks like she'd rather be elsewhere. Well placed in the frame and it works well in b&w.

Great portrait. She seems deep in thought. Like the off centre composition !!V

Hard to see a smile on a model's face on a runway, even the most famous :) I agree they all seem to find this profoundly boring... Your portrait illustrates perfectly this impression...V.

She has something on her mind, her hair perhaps? Good shot to catch the expression. V

She does look a bit gloomy. A fine photo by you though. Tom's comment had me smiling.
Wim Ensie07-Dec-2018 14:10
She is prepairing her presentation and possibly she has not seen you. But a fine shot it is
PauloCGama07-Dec-2018 14:01
Unique expression for sure. Love it. v
Tom Beech07-Dec-2018 11:58
I believe haughty covers it well most times... but she might have caught sight of her hair just before coming out on runway also...
To me, nothing better than seeing a warm smile on an attractive model, at least part of the time...only adds appeal to the fashion she's promoting Still, a fine photo taken by you...

I think maybe John was right in his comment about the hair Neil.
Long Bach Nguyen07-Dec-2018 05:58
beautifully captured her expression and body language
John07-Dec-2018 05:36
Maybe it’s just the bad hair day;-). A very fine portrait Neil. It’s really very good actually. BV.

nice capture of her expression.v.
Carol E Sandgren07-Dec-2018 04:33
Ahhh, I think models are supposed to put on haughty, indifferent airs. Have no idea why but all the high fashion models share that almost dismal expression. That said, she is lovely and you captured her very well.
Jim Coffman07-Dec-2018 03:37
You certainly caught her expression here! Very well captured, Neil...
globalgadabout07-Dec-2018 03:10
far from exuberant, that's for sure...a timely capture though...
