Photo Observation #5

2) Valentin by Ivan Constantin
Taken 25 October 2011
Leica M7 + 35 mm / TriX / Rodinal

3) Theme: Single Life Source

4) This photo didn’t take me long to find, once I realized that a single light source is often keyworded as a ‘dramatic portrait’. I liked this photo because it is not really determinable where this boy is, the background is dark and blurry so that your eye focuses on the child. I also enjoyed that the single light source was emphasized by the shadow cast on the wall behind the child.
