Veronica Lake 1940, photo by George Hurrell. (PIC 4) I love this image as the highlights and shadows are drastic, which gives a strong and dominant feel to the photo. Therefore making the women in the image important in some way. This is something I am going to consider in my own images as to portray the Hollywood actress as important and well known.
Infinite Gaze of Beauty - Elena Kulikova Long exposure is used to to create this distorted effect in a low key studio with lighting coming from all directions. I love the hazy effect which links to my theme of insecurity and not being sure who you are due to pressure from peers.
