Yin & Yang

blackout


Yin & Yang

It took three weeks, but I finally shot my first street portrait of the year yesterday. This is Rontti. I spotted her in Handen. She had a bit of a yin &yang thing going I think. And clearly a unique style and that is often one of the things I am looking for in a portrait. Rontti is studying Aesthetics at the Fredrika Bremer secondary school, and enjoys painting. I figured her for someone that would listen to rock, but she said she was more in to techno music. It is always fun when you can connect people, and it turns out that one of her best friend is The Pink Pop Punk Girl that I met last summer.

Excellent portrait! Rontti certainly has a very unique and eclectic style, good on her! I must say I've missed your portrait shots Steffe.

I really like the monochrome of the first shot. Great portrait as always.

Excellent portrait of a very interesting lady. I think the black and white portrait is absolutely stunning!

Excellent portrait! I think my next photo project will be to photograph a different stranger every day for year.

I think I prefer the cropped B&W image the best. Both are great portraits though.

She looks a real individual who knows her mind and her style. Lovely that you had met and featured one of her friends before too. These portrait featires of yours are very special Steffe.

Steffe said...

Thanks all. I figured a B&W portrait would work with the Yin &Yang feel that I got from Rontti.

Spot on Oakland She was freezing, but hopefully being photographed by me warmed her up a bit!

That sounds like a challenge Andy!
