Stranger 7 by dannyst Stranger 7 by dannyst
I saw her sitting on the stairs outside of a mall, talking with her friend. It seemed like a lively discussion. She was the first girl I’ve approached for this project. When I asked “Is it ok if I take your picture?” she comfortably said “Sure.” I was pleasantly surprised, but was still very nervous. As I took this photograph, I was actually struggling.. thinking: “Steadyyy… man, I hope she doesn’t notice my camera shaking.”

What really struck me about this picture, beside the genuine feeling, was the high contrast on the details of her cute face.
Is it a problem if I use this as a reference for a digital painting practice?

I used this amazing portrait as reference for a practice digital painting. [link]

I would like to use more of your portrait shots for reference practice only as they are awesome. They won't be used commercially and I will link back to your page each time. Hope you don't mind! :D
