Not Another 52 Project?!?!?! 

A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture 

Week 45: Darkness Cannot Contain Me, Define Me, Or Pull Me Down 

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.” – Carl Jung

So, for this week, I was inspired by the dear +Thorn Button  and his spectacular images.  Feeling much better, getting out of the house more, and generally getting out from under the haze of pain pills and sleepless discomfort, I was able to undertake a more ambitious shoot, which consisted of one beauty dish and two reflectors.

My goal was to really get the shadows to cast lovely lines and I think this was accomplished well.

So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 45 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!
