Something different with some role play

Now, this critique is coming from an artist who is not a photographer, but rather from an artist who paints. But still, there are general criteria that all artists follow for critique, so I will stick to that.

Firstly, the emotion is indicative of a woman in great distress and pain. There is no room for the viewer to misunderstand it as anything else, which is excellent. In this way, you've successfully manifested the feeling of grief and anguish. The intensity behind the eyes is also stunning. What really helps unite the emotion is the posing of the hands, which do not seem posed at all. This is another difficult thing to do. When a person is caught in such a moment as this, their whole body tenses up and shakes, even spasms. The fact that you've managed to get the hands to seem so realistically caught in this moment is incredible.

Secondly, my only critique would be the lighting. The light could be played with more to really emphasize this scene. Playing with the lights and darks would push the shapes and planes on her face and hands.

Other than that, and over all, this is wonderful work, as usual from you.

I love the emotion captured in this image. You can almost imagine the pain the model is feeling. The use of black and white in this image was the perfect choice. The image over all is very gripping. As a member of the armed forces, I can imagine this look as being total sadness and loss. The use of natural light(as far as I can tell) was a great choice. Job very well done by both the artist and the model. This could almost be portrayed as a war image. I am very glad to be a follower of this page.

The expressions you have displayed throughout the photographs I have viewed are beyond question some of the best I have ever seen.  In my experience, these expressions come with a great cost attached, as either a tremendous amount of study time goes into them (many times ending up assimilating the emotions from others experiences), or the artist relives (at least in part) experiences in their lives where they were deeply affected by a particular emotion (positive or negative).  Either way, it can take a great toll, as expressing deep emotions such as the one in this shot leaves an impact on all the artists involved.  I have yet to meet an artist that (at least on some level) doesn't feel deeper than the average populace.  I believe this is where our passion (sometimes volatile) and desire to create comes from.  It takes great courage to put yourself out there in the manner I've seen you do, and I have the utmost respect for the works you have created as a result.

Very expressive portrait. When I first saw this image it gave me chills down my spine, reminding me of the same emotion I felt when my grandmother passed away. Even though this was a role play portrait the emotion feels real.

A very honest and visceral depiction of having the misfortune of a sudden, unexpected loss. Life is fragile, it is fleeting and so is time.

As much as I like sepia, I think black and white would look better here, due to the intensity of your expression, amazing work on that.
