Hands On Heart

Soppy one today. The theme for today's photo experiment was "hands". Hands are one of the most difficult things to photograph well. Very hard to pose, and without context can be difficult to interpret. This is part of the reason that well done hand portraits can be some of the most interesting and powerful.

The pic of the day is a cheesy cliché. My beautiful assistant stepped in to provide the other half and we tried a few different things. As expected, it was very difficult to get the right mix of posed and relaxed. I've added a border to prevent the photo seeming to end too vaguely and tie the whole picture together. It's actually a crop of a much larger picture, but the rest of it seemed to distract from the actual subject.
