Photographs with Strong Emotional Impact

November 5, 2009

Hooded in the ParkIf you don’t believe that a photograph can generate an emotional response, simply look at this image.

Sometimes, we react in a visceral way to something we see.

Is the young man in this image someone you would approach?

His expression is neutral, but because of the shadows and the stark rendering in Black & White, this image has a certain foreboding feel to it.

As a portrait photographer, we try to impart an emotional meaning to images of our subject.

Most of the times, we tend to portray the joy and happiness that surrounds us and that our subjects feel.

Occasionally, we go for something a bit more unsettling.

I believe this image achieves that.
