Quiet Hands, Steady Heartbeat- Gesture Practice Photography

This is the first set of photos I took exploring the theme of gesture and color in portraits, something I talked about more in my blog post A Study in Color and Intensity . It was interesting to experiment with different movements and points of view, something I would definitely like to explore further, though hopefully next time with an actual model.

    These photos are amazing! I love the feel you’ve captured–it’s interesting how hands never cease to fascinate.

      Thank you! I’ve always had a fascination with how expressive hands can be, especially when trying to convey emotion. I think in dance especially, when they are used instead of words, and I tried to recreate that sort of feeling here.
      Ah, i’m rambling now,anyways, thank you! :D
