Smile Vs No Smile

In this project, I went out to the field and throughout the school building in order to take photos of a person both smiling and not smiling. It was a little difficult to get people to smile, as some decided to be silly instead. There was definitely a noticeable change between a smiling and frowning person. It gives off a very different impression to the person who looks at the photo, shifting from happiness to seriousness. If I were a photographer, and perhaps took a photo of someone frowning instead of smiling, it could give off a worse impression of the man; Either being too serious or grumpy. I suppose if I was hired I would first ask the person how they were feeling at the moment, so that my photo would capture their true feelings at the moment.


Here is the link to my photos;
