I love to show hands in my portraits. Hands are at least as much revealing the personality of a human being as faces do. I created this image by putting the hand in the lower left corner and the face as much as possible in the upper right corner. Also, look closely at her face. the rim of her right eye (left from the viewer’s point) is right at the edge of her face. Last, The lines of her body are in an angle and she is slightly out of the center of the image. I believe these are all criteria of a great portrait.
Enjoy and happy photographing!
