Dark eyes

The boldness of the pose along with the slightly over-exposed models skin really grabs the viewer’s eye in this image. Speaking of eyes, since I was shooting in the mid day sun just out of the shadows Shannon’s eyes appear very dark, giving this photo its name. This image is slightly off center with the models body facing the camera yet her eyes are looking toward the center of the frame build tension in the viewers mind. Overall the harsh sunlight really makes this image and gives it a dramatic moon-like feel.
