Photography can be an additive practice as we have discussed in class, but no where is this more evident than the lighting studio. You begin with a black room, add a back ground, set lights, determine camera angle and lastly choose a subject.
In this assignment you will enlist the help of a human subject, no younger than 14 years old and photograph them under controlled lighting conditions in the lighting studio. Pay attention to direction of main and fill lights and ratio between each source. In the studio, everything matters.
Artists to research are: Karsh, Avedon, Halsman, Leibovitz, Scavullo and Penn.
Submit a minimum of one print for critique November 12th,
