Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 19: Generations
Another week, another staged portrait shot composed through the use of natural light and two generations.
This week, I shot a moment that was quite special to me and conceptualized what being a mom embodies to me. Unity, togetherness, love and maternal instincts to protect your young in such a way that you must be a mom (or dad) to fully understand.
It is the completion of a circle – like looking into a mirror and seeing all your hopes and dreams carrying on in someone else – your legacy.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! ♥
So, without further ado, here is my shot for Week 19 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!
