Here comes the second part of The Portrait Element project, people! The schemas in my head have been satisfied as the second part of the project is to shoot people (shoot through a camera of course).
For this assignment I will be shooting twi subjects, one male, one female, the project comprising of eight images, four of each subject. Each of the four images will be in one of four categories, the observed portrait, the formal portrait, the detail portrait and the environmental portrait. The constraints of the project are that at least two of the images must be lit with a flash of some sort. Having practiced with artificial/flash lights in part one of this project I’m now pretty confident with using them. I’m also to create contact sheets to help in the editing process. The group display of this work will be on the 21st and 22nd of November.
Immediately I already know of one person that I want to photograph for this project, a friend of mine from sixth form named Lizzie who is currently studying an acting course at a different University. My reasons for wanting to use her as my model have already been stated, she’s an actress. I’ve already contacted her and set up a shoot date that both of us are free for, I feel ready to tackle this project. No idea as of yet however as to who my male photographic subject will be.
