This week I ended up in the studio on recommendation of one of my tutor. To get comfortable about going into the studio before taking other people in there for a project I’m currently doing for my degree.
The exercise started with me shooting a film with my eyes closed.
By the end of the exercise I had my eyes open and trying to pose – you would not believe how hard I find it to pose in front of a camera!
The lighting was setup in this way so that it would not distract from the simplicity of the photographs themselves.
The aim of the session was to get me to look at simple lighting akin to David Bailey, Sally Man and Richard Avedon to try to open up the possibilities of a series of portraits I’m currently shooting. I may have more from this set (I’ve got photographs of two other people too and if they will let me post them I’ll share them with you lot!).
