Girl on the terrace
These days, I feel that a lot of portrait photographers try to overcomplicate things when taking a photograph, and often they fail to achieve the desired impact. With this photograph of a young girl by Ukrainian photographer Julia Tyagushova that is not the case. Julia has kept things simple, or at least it appears that way, and in doing so has succeeded in obtaining a wonderful portrait / fashion shot.
Firstly, what I really like about this image is the complimentary colour palette, and how this provides harmony throughout the scene. In addition, I like the pose as well, which draws your eyes into the model's face. And finally the use of the shoes to fill the dead space on the left. All in all a really effective shot.
Julia produces some lovely portrait / fashion shots by intelligently using the environment she is in to complement her model, the clothes and the story she is trying to tell through her images. Please use the link above to see the image on 500px and take your time to browse through the rest of her work, which I'm sure you will like. You can also engage with her through her Instagram account:
