Human curves in black and white photography has always caught my attention. In this particular picture I concentrated on face profile with a soft back lighting to bring out the lines.
Landscape like pictures can be made out of the curves from the human body depending of the position of the lighting creating lines and shadows.
I used my Panasonic DMC-FX12 camera for this shot with shutter speed of 10/100sec and focal length of 6mm. The room must be dark with only one light source, preferably at the back of the subject. Play around with the position of the light at the back, i slightly positioned it 10 to 20 degree towards the face to get the most lighting on the profile.
