Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 12: Light In Never Silenced
Another week, another staged portrait shot composed through the use of artificial 3 stand lighting with my new Lensbaby Composer Pro.
This week, I went to a a place of light and purity.
I don’t have too much to say about the series this week except that I wanted to play off a few concepts this week. I, at first, wanted to use an abundance of light to experiment with the capabilities and creative effects of the Lensbaby. On top of that, I wanted to focus on purity and the juxtaposed allure of a Lolita. Innocence and seduction were the points I was looking for in this shot and I think it worked well.
It was also my contribution to the +Selfy Sunday project ( #ssp ) this week as there was no theme for this session. However, there is still the face close-up contest for the month, which can be found in The Art of Self Portraiture community’s tutorial section by yours truly! =)
So, without further ado, here is my shot for Week 12 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!
