I am doing a series of portraits that involve people and their jobs/hobbies. I'm trying to incorporate something from their job/hobby in each image I make. I just want something from it to effect the image in some way.
This is my favorite teacher from high school. I had a lot of fun shooting this and setting up the lights. I took it in front of the chalkboard and used that as the background. I actually did not use the lighting I originally planned on doing, because I did not realize the chalkboard would bounce the light back in such an odd way.... But after switching it around a few times, I decided on the split lighting with the slight rim light on the bottom left.
I am working on my concept board that is due for class...in 3 hours.. (shhh) BUT.. my next shoot will be of a Splicer from the video game Bioshock. It has to be either food or fashion.. And I discovered that my friend Mari has a costume for a Splicer... So I am making these wicked characters part of a fashion shoot! If you have no idea what a splicer is, you can search it on Google and a ton of pictures will pop up. They are incredibly creepy looking, but I'm going to take a different approach to them in this shoot. Here is my lighting diagram. I'll be shooting this next Wednesday!
