Capturing Portraits Without Faces with @the69th.
“‘Why is the person in the portrait always turned away from you’, everyone asks me,” says Russia Instagrammer Anna Pavlova (@the69th), whose #portraitwithoutface hashtag series features photos lacking faces. “My photos have people who don’t show their faces, but there are still people in the shot,” she explains. “Portraits without faces are like an open-ended romance. Everyone can think what they like about the shot. Is this person in the portrait happy or not? Maybe the person is excited or just calmly enjoying the world around.” Want to try taking a #portraitwithoutface shot of your own? “Use different angles and props for the shot,” Anna advises. “For example, use green leaves, basketball balls or matte glass to cover the face in the shot.” She adds, “Do not forget about backgrounds such as a picturesque landscape or a colorful wall—there are a lot of angles worth exploring to make your faceless portrait unique!”

It’s gonna be so nice when the roommate’s parents leave so that I can come home and not be walking on eggshells to get through the living room/kitchen. :)))
The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
Man…Had to donate at least $20.
So many people are being fucking bitter about the ice bucket challenge. I just don’t understand. Why try to make something that is so great (raising awareness, donations to finding a cure, support for those with or family/friends with ALS) into something negative?
