Portrait Inspiration...

For this assignment we were asked to find a portrait we admire and discuss it a little. My selection is a portrait of Winston Churchill by Yousuf Karsh. I love the light he used it almost seems like a painting on some level. One light camera right and slightly elevated. Now I am pretty sure Karsh used a light behind Churchill for some separation, but it could also be dodging in the darkroom. Karsh successfully makes Churchill seem heroic, but contemplative. Its a great frame!
