Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!
A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture
Week 42: Hollywood Undead
“Don’t judge me. Ethics and morality no longer exist in our world. It’s a luxury of the past, afforded only to those who had a future.” ― T.M. Williams, Undead Winter
This week, I decided to go a juxtaposed concept. Glamour and beauty with zombification and decay. It was actually a bit tricky to do a beauty make-up, but still keep it ghoulish and creepy.
This had a single flash set-up and the time consuming part was the make-up. The real magic was just that. PS was just a way to give it a grungier look and create the finger cigarette.
So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 42 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!
