Hm I love the photo, though I think Lara looks a bit strange here. A bit too 'angry' maybe, it makes her look stiff as if she doesn't like being in the photograph.. The light and how you've captured the location is done superb, though.
but i can't see how else i could have expressed myself here, it's a straight on shot. i could imagine me being like and it would totally ruin it, or i could be emo and have tears running down my eyes, see?
Hm I've seen loads of different expressions on your selfportraits and photos of Nicola White, for example. I got the point already, I know that a big smile happy face or an emo kid drowning tears would look cheesy, I am not completely stupid ? I already said I like the photo, but IMO I think with the modelling you could have done better, or the photographer could've chosen a better moment. You're stil not looking ugly or something, don't feel offended. The dress looks really cute on you and I really like your pose.
