5 more portraits

The Costume Maker

As I had never really done any portrait shoots before I was a bit stressed about this assignment, particularly after realising how important lighting is to giving an appearance of complexity to the face (that insanely amazing photographer Stephan vanFleteren does this exceptionally well). However although I did use lighting in these shoots (via a reflector & available light), my main tactic with this series was to choose subjects who were in visual locations; the thought being that hopefully these would say something about them too.

Portraits are really something that I want to nail, so there will definitely be more experiments on this front from me in the future.

Here are the rest of mine:

The Barman


The Rapper

The Fish & Chip Shop Man


The Waiter (with his tummy partly chopped off unfortunately)
