Portrait Research


Self Portrait:

I want to evoke a sense of vulnerability and uneasiness in this one. I plan to be on my bed in need with my hands squished between my knees with a solemn look on my face. Because my bedsheets are blue and the light will be coming from behind me and the general color mood of my room is soft, it will be eerie and hazy looking. Colors: blue, white, dead pink



The environment portrait will depict a young woman in a botanical garden, behind huge leaves, eating a leaf or a lady bug or some sort of nature object. Most likely there will be dirt on her face and twigs in her hair. The subject of the photo will be as natural as possible to be genuine to the nature theme of the composition. It should be playful and dirty. Colors: Darker earth tones, green brown, pink


The light in this one will obscure a good portion of my subjects face as to achieve a solemn and dark look. It’ll be taken from slightly below and at a 3/4 angle with only eyes making contact so that it’s awkwardly intimidating and intense. The background will be black or a texture white wall and the subject will be in black. Colors: Black/White


This image will be a nude of an ethnic looking person, eating grapes like a roman and lounging outside. The environment will be set so that it looks tropical and if possible, the subject must be fanned with huge banana leaves or make shift banana leaves. Colors will be very saturated, red, greens, orange, fuschia.
