I started the summer off with a title ‘Expressive energy’ my GCSE art topic. Which lead onto facial expressions. Now painting and drawing stunning portraits I find a little tricky so I tend to go along the path of abstract paintings or photography which I love.
So I grabbed my brother (the poser in the photographs) and hauled him into our sitting room where I set about controlling the light with barn doors, and I used a reflective background on the photographs which I wanted to express his whole face.
I used my beginners EOS Digital camera, on manual setting with a shutter speed of 100 matched with IOS 800 and F5.6. I loved this combination as I found it blocked out the background allowing myself to effectively be able to put my camera on a Black & White setting, enhancing the colour grading and shadows even more dramatically.
I hope you liked my my photography portrait examples any enquires please feel free to email myself via firstname.lastname@example.org
