Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!

A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture

Week 40: Seeing Red

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” – Confucius

This week, I had close to 3 projects to work on and they were quite taxing physically, professionally, and mentally.  I almost didn’t think I was going to get anything done.  Low and behold, I got them done, but now I am sore and tired; ready for a little lazy Sunday relief.

For this project and shared with the +Selfy Sunday Project, which runs every two weeks and is a public event anyone can join, I decided upon a simple, classic beauty dish shot for this week to cas lovely shadows and highlights over the costume and make-up I already had on from previous projects.

I don’t have a whole lot to say beyond that (shocker, I know)….

So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 40 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:

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!
