Do all photos need to tell a complete story? What do you think? Actually, it can be really interesting if your image leaves the viewers wondering about what’s going on in the image. This plays an important role in keeping viewers engaged. Photographer Anna Ulman took the following beautiful image that draws us in. Can you guess why that is?
Ulman shot the image on a Sony A7III with the Canon 135mm f/2.0 lens at f/2.0, 1/500-second exposure, and ISO 1000 using just the natural light.
It’s great how she has managed to find the perfect spot to photograph this image. The lighting is quite ideal here with the model being evenly illuminated while the other elements are in shadow. This helps in directing all the attention to the model while getting rid of distractions.
Although her stance is pretty and graceful, her choice of clothing may leave many viewers wondering. To be honest, the mix of ballet shoes, thigh-highs, a sweater, and a floppy hat doesn’t really make sense. But maybe, that’s the point. Maybe there was some purpose for the selection of this wardrobe. The fact that it’s slightly odd makes the photo more in our opinion. Apart from that, the way the color palette blends so well with the surroundings is equally pleasant and gives this image a certain charm.
