V I shot these in February 2014, at a training session, where some of the participants were kind enough to serve as impromptu models.
I had no idea these will turn out so intense, and I may be to blame for telling Valentine not to smile much. Fortunately she actually did smile at the end of the shoot!
The charcoal effect is an unintended accident of the processing, Pan F is such a finicky medium for people portraits.
