Instead of staying away from a rough personality, have you ever tried to find the good in it?
It is a general belief that the best light for photography is in the morning, early evening, cloudy days with high clouds, etc., etc. … Yes and No! What happens in the middle of a cloudless day?
What about if one wants to express a different feeling other then softness?
If one looks carefully, there is beauty in everything. As you try to find it in a rough personality, I try to find it in the middle of a cloudless day.
I chose front, bright and specular light, dark shadows and a rough environment. Yes it is harsh! It is also exquisite.
