Dark, a photo by Bruce Garner on Flickr.
I shot this of our friend Lauren the other night when she was over visiting my daughters. I had gotten stagnant in my portrait shooting and wanted to do something different from my normal style. I was tired of the overly posed corporate head shot type photo. I also wanted more contrast since my recent prints in the darkroom were very grey. I felt that her blonde hair would contrast nicely with a black background. She gave me exactly the expression I wanted.
