This image has been composed so Obama is in the center of the image with you looking slightly up towards him, making him the main focus of the image with a very high power look, but yet approachable with how he is sitting. I feel the lighting in this is a bit harsh and would have suited it better with a slighter softer lighting.
sewn found photos - lisa kokin [found images + thread; 'i am intrigued with other people’s photographic recording of their lives both for the generic quality they possess - the family & social rituals, studio portraits, vacation shots - and for the feeling of sadness and nostalgia that acquiring other people’s memories provokes in me. I feel somehow that it should be illegal to own them, yet since they are for sale it might as well be me who buys them'; http://www.lisakokin.com]

Striking Portraits of Women Submerged Beneath a Barrier of Water
Suki Waterhouse models French Connection. I like the contrasting background here to bring out the white outfit. I also like the bright lighting, I prefer less moody shots as I feel it shows off the outfits more. I also like that the only shadow is hers. The picture has a very light and easy feeling to it with the only mood being brought in by Suki's facial expression. I think a soft box has been used due to the softness of her skin and shadow.
