Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!

A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture

Week 41: Sloppy Seconds

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” -Edgar Allan Poe

This week, I decided to go with a more dark and brooding image, but with a simple set-up since I have been exhausted due to health issues.  I was just in that mood – frustration, irritation, impatience, doubting.  However, I decided to use those to inspire me with ideas for things of a darker nature.

This had a single flash set-up and all that was required was a hoodie and some fake blood, which tasted icky.

The real magic happened in Photoshop CS6.

Stay tuned; I am sure there will be more creepiness as we get closer to the Hallowed holiday.

So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 41 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!
