I don’t exactly know why I chose this photo. We were celebrating my roommate’s birthday and I was just shooting at random. This wasn’t set up, and I didn’t put a lot of real effort into the photo besides editing. It may not be that great of a photo – it’s blurry, you can’t see the subject’s face, the background is busy – but I think that’s why I like it.
Instead of portraying someone’s fake personality by having them “smile for the camera,” it’s sometimes nice to have true candid happiness.
