Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 14: The Art of Being
Another week, another staged portrait shot composed through the use of 3 studio lights nd a whole lot of acrylic paints.
This week, I went to a place deep in my being where I put all my creativity for the fine arts.
Mostly, these days, I spend a lot of time behind or in front of my camera, but before the camera, I was slapping the paints around my stretched canvases. With the theme for +Selfy Sunday being #color , I had the epiphany to become the canvas.
So, without further ado, here is my shot for Week 14 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!
