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:

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!
