Keira Knightley plays such stubborn, tragic, passionate, and strong willed female characters. My favorite role she has ever played was Lizzie Bennett in Pride and Prejudice. She was so strong in that role. My favorite thing about her acting is when she gets fired up. She just IS passion
I like the posing and angle of this portrait...very manly. The crop also is interesting, I like the fact that he isn't all in it and that you can look beyond him...but with him posed like the way he is why would you want to look beyond him.
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.
