Its always interesting to take portraits of your friends, family, or even random people but sometimes the images may be plain or not very creative. These portraits, however, are very inspiring for creating different and interestinf portraits. Using shadows and elements of nature help to add more to the photos without taking away from the subject. It adds color and dimension to the photographs and makes it more interesting to look at. They make the mood of each photo more apparent to the viewer. It would be interesting to use the ideas and techniques in a future project for some more interesting shots.
