Here are some examples:
We know can tell this because her hair is done she has nice clothes on and she clearly has a lot of self respect.
In David baileys photos he often tells what the objects personality is like and from this we can tell she is probably shy and unconfident.
In this photo what I think is particularly affective is the black and Wight, this tells something about the object, it could possibly tell she has a dull character it could also tell she is a boring and plain character.
In this image they have used a basic straight shot, with her head placed in the top middle square off the rule of thirds and her hands being placed in the golden square, I think they have done this purposely to show something about the character, personally I think they have portrayed that she is shy.
Her specific body language is shy and unconfident.
We can tell this because her arms are pushed into her chest and facing away from the camera.
This how's she is shy because she is looking away from the camera which means she doesn’t want attention pointed her way. It also shows she is unconfident because she's tucking her arms to her chest which shows she's nervous.
The focus for this young people that are it to fashion or hair and beauty.
