When a subject looks into the camera, the result can either be your typical posed shot or something more; here is a prime example of a photo that falls into that “something more” category. The half-hidden look obscured by the scarf and the subject’s hair, the sense of being led through an alleyway by this person--all of this adds a bit of mysteriousness (and mischief, perhaps?) to the picture.
Photographer Lizette Carrasco shot this photo in downtown Los Angeles with her film camera, the Canon Rebel G, using Lomography film ISO 400.
