Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 27: The Family Unit
Our last day in the mountains seemed like the best day to record the memory in pixels, so while the rain had lightened up, I set up the tripod down on the front steps and I got the shot set up using the cloudy day for some nice diffused light.
Once we all had our places, I ran down to adjust the setting, then me and the trusty wireless remote trigger hopped up the steps for this shot.
We are a strong family unit, even if we are not the traditional family. I mean, seriously, who wouldn’t want to have an amazing boyfriend and an awesomesauce mini-me to call their own?!?!
I know I couldn’t have asked for a more true and “meant to be” unit to support and be with me through thick and thin!
So, without further ado, here is my very simple family portrait shot for Week 27 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!
