I am looking to portraiture of family and friends.
I wanted to look to the 40s and 50s as inspiration, i love the elegance and beauty of this time. I also love the lighting techniques, which captures a depth and mystery to the subject. I really want to produce a portfolio that is timeless, beautiful and elegant. These are some of the photos i wish to reproduce.
Yousuf Karsh. His portraits are amazing. My favourite is that of Ernest Hemingway. The lines on his face emphases a man of substance and thoughtful. He appears to be strong yet personable. I really like how Yousuf captures his subjects, they often feel intimate and honest. Those are the types of photos i want to take.
