Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 13: A Thing For Spring
Another week, another staged portrait shot composed through the use of natural light, diffused through natures canopy, with my new Lensbaby Composer Pro.
This week, I went to a place of childlike wonderment and spring time energy.
It was spring break for my munchkin so as any good mommy, I took some time from work to take her out and about in the freshly springtime weather and photowalk our local nature preserves.
She knew that I had scouted the areas for a #styleitshootitshareitmarchallenge shot all month, and with the birthday awesomeness of the Lensbaby Composer Pro, it was time to nail it.
So, without further ado, here is my shot for Week 13 of this portraiture project!
The rules I have laid out are simple – 1) these portraits can be of myself or another model, but cannot be the same image as my other project; 2) There must be a lighting element – whether my studio lights or a consciously planned shoot using natural lighting from the golden hour, etc. The key being consciously planned – no “on a whim”, point the camera at someone and call it complete. These will be portraits per the definition:
1. A painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person.
2. A representation or impression of someone or something in language or on film.
picture – likeness – portraiture – portrayal – effigy
My goal is to expand my portraiture abilities and processing as well as direction I give others while also working on my creative muscles and my own personal style, which I believe to be shooting what I like to see!
