These different portraits have various different styles. what i like about the Tom hoops’s one is how the background on the left side is really black that makes the subject stand out. For the Alessio portrait i like how the photographer highlights the models face and all her facial features. Lisa’a portrait uses natural lighting to expose the subject. Furthermore she uses color to show the tone she was going for. Becca portrait uses smoke to make this a creative portrait that along with black and white to highlight her subject.
The first photographer is called David Hobby. He is also known as “The Strobist”. He uses flash to light all of his portraits. Using the flash units he creates drama in the images. He does a good job in isolating subject while keeping the background interesting. The second photographer is called Lisa Holloway. She predominately uses natural light for all of her shoots. I really like how she uses the sun as rim light to separate the subject from background to create a dreamy effect. The last photographer is called Kai Boettcher, he adds creative elements to his portraits to make them stand out. I really like how he uses different techniques to add a creative flair to all of his shots.
Timothy Mcgur style of portraits show a type of story along with a lil twist to it. He shows depth of field and other types of styles and his editing are also various on the type of mood he’s trying to set to the picture.
Van Styles type of style is clean and simple and very cohesive he tries to do the most simple and easiest edits and poses to get straight to the point.
Vuh Landes shows different types of edits along with the rocky side of living life. His edits are also cohesive. Along with him kinda showing violence along with the products.
I love how Jesse uses lights that are not strobes or speedlights. The bulbs or street lights he uses makes the images look glowy, hazy and the bokeh adds the dreamy effect to the background. I want to be able to use that same effects in my photography.
I like how Joes images are composed. I want to be able to use symmetry on my photography and Joe makes this look easy to do. I want to be able to mirror my images and have the same type of symmetrical effect to my backgrounds.
The vibrancy that Steve has is so eye catching. I will try and implement the vibrancy part of the images.
In Gavins photos I like how he likes the props with an external flash . Also I like how he uses soft lighting to light the model . I like the transition between the light and the shadows . John K uses soft lighting on his pics and I think it loos really nice with minimal shadows. I think his image look really good even though he Little to no contrast in his pictures. Daniel shoots various styles but what really caught my eye is how he creates different types of shadows in his images. I plan on using this type of lighting to create drama in my fashion pics. Also I plan on using soft lighting for my beauty shots.
Marco Trunz’s style of editing is clean. It’s simple yet incredibly attractive. The first set with the woman advertising the jewelry is creative in placement of the products and in the use of the model. There’s nothing distracting about her makeup or even the clothes because none are shown who makes you focus on the jewelry. The set with the man is color coordinated with simple and, again, non distracting clothes. Mark Seliger and Nabil Elderkin both photographed The Weeknd and did so in a similar fashion. Color coordination was a huge factor with the editing and with the surroundings.
here are some photos I chose from some of the photographers that i thought were really good and looking into the true art of portrait photography. i love how all photographers in these images used simple backgrounds, it doesn’t mean the image itself it’s not perfect; just love how they all used plain backgrounds because bring the models in to more focus and show their emotions. I really love how they took the images as close ups makes me wanna try something like that and i plan to use that as my technique. i plan to use natural lighting because add an element of softness to the images. Ive shot all my images and the most I’m having trouble with is editorial. other than that i hope I’ve master the portrait phase of photography.
I really liked what these photographers did to style there models.The beauty shots i really like how the model is looking up and the neck stands out how they pop the shoulder i want to do that with my model. The fashion one really want to do it like
somewhere outdoors urban really like how adidas stands out in fashion.The editorial i
also want to do it somewhere urban like tell a story or take the picture from a different presctive where the model isn’t looking but away to the city.
I liked the most of Lindsay Adler’s styles, some of Christian Anwander’s and David LaChappele’s styles. The beauty, I liked their soft light and composition. The fashion and advertising, I liked the composition and color they used to drew the eye to the products. The editorial more about hard light and mood.
I choose David LaChapelle because I love that his portraits are color and very creative. I would love to use some vibrant color on my editorial or Fashion portraits. I love how every portraits tell a story and everything seems to be in the right place. Also, his portraits make a reference to a theme. On the other hand, I Like Melania Brescia portraits because they seem to have movement and tell story. I would like to try to take pictures with the hair moving or even with a color light. I think if I use one of these elements; they will create a dynamic portrait. Moreover, I like the light that Lee Jeffries uses on his portraits. I love that he focuses a lot on the faces and its texture. Also, I like that the eyes are really highlight that the look is so strong that I can feel something. I like the color of the portraits that they are almost gray and no colorful; I believe that this helps the picture a lot. For my beauty portrait, I want to focus in the eyes and the pupils as Lee Jeffries did. Finally, I like Manny Librodo portraits because it is almost like David Lachapelle because of the vibrant colors and the exotic backgrounds. I wish I could have that kind of production to take this kind of portraits.
