Rich Burroughs and Jennifer with Option Model Management
As I mentioned in my last post, Jennifer and I focused in this shoot on getting images where her face was partially obscured. I mentioned to her the phenomenon I’ve seen with shots cropped from the mouth down, I see a lot of them on Instagram. A lot of times they’re really lovely. I’m not sure what it is, I think possibly it’s because you probably get more asymmetry/imperfections in most faces when you add in extra elements like noses and eyes. I’d shot an image of a standing model that had that kind of crop and when I showed it to Jenn she liked it a lot. So we gave this a shot.
I think it turned out really lovely. I was worried about how good I’d get the crop, I’ve felt like sometimes the viewfinder on my Polaroid tricks me a bit as to where the top of the frame is. But this was exactly what I was looking for.
