This photo of my dad and Matty was actually taken several weeks ago, with my arms held up above my head. My dad has a goofy grin on his face because he thinks my fixation with angles is very silly.
I am practicing a lot with the textures and actions that were recommended to me. I'm still trying to get the hang of it. I really like high contrast, but I'm not sure where to draw the line between dramatic and cartoon-ish.
