"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

An interesting composition. Because of the awkward positions the children were captured in (heads, hands and feet up in air, and the boy's arms bent backwards) I first thought these were dolls on the floor. I love the tones here, along with the sheen reflection off the girl's cheeks.

17 Aug 2010 9:08pm
