At the end of the pan we smash truck in on the face and armpit (above), and what we see.....what we see is....well....not what we were expecting!
Actually the girl isn't bad looking. I'll bet the photographer gave her the geek glasses and posed her this way for a joke. Anyway, she'd be fun to draw, and fun to draw faces are what this post is all about.
Of course, the ultimate female face to draw (above) was that of Gloria Swanson in "Sunset Blvd."
Wow! Don't mess with this (above) kid! Note how the nose deforms when she grimaces. The middle section flattens and broadens into a heart shape. Look at the fork wrinkles that seem to come out of the eyes and spread around the nose.
Look at this girl (above)! The whole bottom half of her face slants inward. I wish I could see this pose on a profile.
Here's (above) the young Maurice Chevalier. People who''ve never seen Chevalier before will probably go nuts trying to figure out what this expression means.
I;m beginning to realize that if you want to photograph girls, then you better have a basket full of of different kinds of glasses handy. They really do define a subject.
