Exercise 3.9: A significant place/3.10 formal portrait
This place which is significant in the sense that I meditate here, is portrayed with that in mind. The atmosphere is subdued and the lighting principally from candles and some upper lighting from a standard halogen lamp.
3.9 A significant place
Exercise 3.10 A formal portrait
This exercise was a little confusing in some ways. The idea of a cool portrait without interaction seemed to go against the grain of other attempts of portrait photography that I had done. A the time I had no access to lighting and so the lighting here that is used is the simplest that was available. I think that when I look at the image it is a bit disappointing as a portrait as it does not really show the character of the person. The lighting is somewhat flat and does not really lend a sense of bringing the person to life.
