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:

por·trait
/ˈpôrtrət/

Noun

1. A painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person.
2. A representation or impression of someone or something in language or on film.

Synonyms
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!
