Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!

A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture

Week 46: Where Creativity Takes Me

“I tramp a perpetual journey.” ― Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

So, for this week, I couldn’t do exactly what I wanted since I could not lay flat on the floor, but it did allow for my creativity to point me in a different direction and still use all the props and pieces for the intended result.

I started with test shots of my candles and then realized I was still going to need my flash; however, I decided to gel it with an orange to keep the warm glow.

This set up was rather simple: 1 diffused flash gelled and in my beauty dish, one white card to the side, and the candles.  After that, it was a simple retouch in PS and a trip to the sink to rinse off the make-up! =)

I always enjoy seeing where my creativity takes me….

So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 46 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!
