Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 15: The Little Things
Another week, another staged portrait shot composed through the use of a snoot and a free-standing lamp.
This week, I wanted to try something new. I wanted to provide a challenge by limiting the amount of light I had to work with, and still produce something studio-esque. I often take for granted the fact that I could light up a small stadium with all this stuff, but I wanted to go back to that time when I had to be creative with what I was working with, and today, I did just that.
Sometimes, it really is the little things in life.
So, without further ado, here is my shot for Week 15 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!
