LEILA BLAKE: SELF PORTRAITS
I came across these shots on behance this morning by Leila Blake. I'm really liking this style of photography at the moment. Slightly washed out colour, great composition an "out of studio" feel and in this case honest subject matter – self portraits in what appears to be a home setting. It's a wonderful contrast to the over the top, in your face photography that bombards us everyday through almost every form of advertising. The style of the photography here give the photos a very relaxed feel, reminiscent of photos that would be stuck on the wall of a share-house, however with a closer inspection it's obvious that these shots have much more intention and purpose than photos taken by the amateur photographer to capture random moments of life.
