everything by suzi9mm everything by suzi9mm
a girl taking a self portrait in the bathroom and crying, that's all there is to it, or should i say everything. i entitled this as it is for i wanted to portray an emotion, in this moment right there, everything is in there, there is no rest of the world. i wanted her to look sad, with hurt pride but still proud, bitter, with a broken heart but still in love, desperate but not dying... all of these things and more. i am wondering why is she taking this photo and to whom.

*mi4 talked me over into trying a high ISO, so i used 1600 :D i hope you enjoy the grainy feel like i do. i also for once did not use flash, only natural bathroom lighting, cos i wanted a realistic feel. this was the last shot i took, i got that 'this is it!' feeling so i stopped right there. the camera she is holding is my beloved Pentax Z-1 film SLR that served me faithfully :heart:


the girl is the beautiful *natashalyonne who visited me here from Germany for the past week :)

Amazing photo, and it being in black and white makes it even more emotional, to me at least.

In fact, I'd liked to have it less grainy but the model & expression is amazing.

This is one of the most illuminating images I've ever seen. I think it captures something very strong, and you&your model should be very proud of your success at conveying a difficult teenage concept. +fav

makes me think of someone who is either about to or has just come through some appearance altering event and is unhappy about it....but not like unhappy with the results or about having something done, but just so shaken in her self-esteem that she cries when she looks in the mirror. but she wants a picture of it, and that makes her sadder..to have her reflection permenantly recorded like that.

or someone has hurt her, and she wants them to see how she cries.

(it's rather hot here tonight, and my brain hurts with heat...so i'm potentially crazy)

I like the grainy feel :nod: it all looks very natural and casual though nevertheless professional.

I swear I may have commented on this before but I can't help but say that your model looks exactly like Meg White from the White Stripes. She's really beautiful.
