In a series of portraits, when the model "look at us," reassures us, but when we look, we are seduced.
This is a comment on something we all know but which are not explanations.
That we all know are the photographs that the model looks at the camera or looking to one side.
What postulate as a premise is that when the photographed facing the camera looks less seductive than when facing its side, as if looking at someone else other than us.
Now imagine that the act of looking that picture is like being with that person.
To be more clear, I will ask you to use as an example the image of Penelope Cruz in this article.
That image is attractive because in our fantasy are feeling jealous, because we ask, "Who are you looking so earnestly?, Why she did not just look at me?"
Let us refer to our childhood, when mom's eyes was a reliable indicator of whether we had the essential collaboration or this support was in doubt because Mom looked at other siblings, or worse still, watching our father, who notoriously held over her an enviable power of attraction.
When looking at this picture of Penelope Cruz looking to his right or to his left, men and women feel jealous and this jealousy make her draw us more, we magnetize, beguile us.
Of course, our model should look at ourselves from time to time. Some shots must "look to the photographer '. If you never make our fantasy fall into despair and abandon.
In a series of images, when "we look" increases our peace and when we look at increases our anxiety and we are attracted, seduced, eager to get back to reassure watching.
