Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 31: In Thought
“That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.” – Edgar Allan Poe
This week I was filled with a lot of thinking, thoughts, and thoughtiness. I was consumed with things from the past, events of the present, and where I am going in the future. I spent a morning, prior to clocking in at work, pondering those things.
For this shot, I used a 50mm prime lens on my #canon60D (on a level surface), and the light from the full wall window (partially blinded).
So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 31 of this 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!
