Final Series Proposal


(Sorry in advance for the sloppy writing in the sketches).



Tentative Series Name: 

Characters of Nature

State Idea:

Within this series I want to focus on a person’s qualities though nature and color.

How will you execute idea?

I plan to take environmental portraits of these people while using natural lighting. The series will consist of both shallow and long depth of fields depending on each pictures composition.

Why is this topic important to you? What do you want other people to understand? What do you hope this series will accomplish?

This series is important to me because I have a new found love for environmental photography and portrait photography. I hope to combine these two categories in a way that helps me better understand them, and to improve upon them. I want people to see the many personalities that can show through with the use of different environments, lighting, clothing, expression, and color. What I hope to accomplish with this series is that people will understand how much variety there is within each personality. Nothing is black and white, like the use of color I will try to show (as well as everything else).

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed?

I will use a tripod to level each photo perfectly for each composition. I might try to use a reflector depending on the lighting.

Output Method and Size:

I will be making the final 10 images into 8×10 or 12×18 prints. I want them to be large enough so that every detail is shown well.
