Ellen & Jay

Ellen & Jay II, originally uploaded by jkorpi.

At a recent party, I ran into an interesting couple with amazing faces. I asked if they would mind me photographing them for a portraiture assignment on “groups.”
In trying to come up with an idea to somehow show the striking features of their faces and also some aspect of them as a couple, I came up with this view from above. The initial thought was that their arms would form a square around the shape of the film’s frame, but in the natural movement of their hands and arms they formed shapes that were much more pleasing and spontaneous.
