I am so fascinated with faces and the emotion that comes with the beauty of a face that at times I find myself lost in a face, just looking and taking in the subtle changes as that person talks, the history of each wrinkle and scar and the depth of the soul reflected in the eyes.
I had the pleasure yesterday to photograph a salon and the great people who work there.. During the preparation the owner of Salon 7, Jenny O was having me take a simple shot to check and see how the make up was looking in the camera. While I was taking these simple shots I found my adrenaline flow, excited at the faces in my viewfinder. As the people passed one by one I told them the same thing.. “Look into the lens and show no emotion” the results are fascinating!
I believe no emotion can be more emotion than you would expect.
Take a look and see what stories you see in these wonderful faces..
What did you see.. ?.. Love, Beauty, Lust, Pain, Pleasure, Confidence, Vulnerability.. LIFE?
Today stop for a moment and take a look at the faces that surround you and celebrate the emotion in them and perhaps the emotion in you as well..
Be alive my friends and capture what you see.. Dana A Nöllsch
