Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!

A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture

Week 48: Tis La Saison | Frost Queen

“It’s a moment that I’m after, a fleeting moment, but not a frozen moment.” – Andrew Wyeth

I think, in being a photographer, that is what I try to do.  When I capture images, especially that of portraiture, I am chasing that moment, but not wanting to freeze; like borrowing it for a time and then giving it back to the world.

This was quite a shot in preparation.  eyebrow blocking and creating textures for new ones with liquid latex and glitter was something to add to my beauty make-up portfolio, that is sure.  In addition, I went soft, girly and even added some snow flake bokeh by way Christmas lights.

The set-up was quite simple; I guess that is because the make-up was such an undertaking!

Lighting was a beauty dish with flash, a soft box to my side and one white fill.  After that, I added my post processing drama and flare for a few different versions of the shot.  This is just one…

Another can be found under the SSP event!

So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 48 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!
