I can definitely say to be attracted by strong, intense and contrasty (is that a word?) pictures. I like saturated colors in many cases, but when desaturation adds onto the atmosphere and intensity of the scene, then I will go with that.
My most recent photo shooting has been a big push in that direction. I must thank Terry for modeling and bringing in both her ideas and energy into these shots. You should check her profile on Model Mayhem too, but not before checking the full gallery here. Oh, and some behind the scenes too. What do you think?
