Back to school - Wk 1

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.

A photographer who i really like is 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.

  1. Beautiful photos Sepa. Have you had thoughts about how you will approach the lighting? You might want to search the library for some books or start looking online for tutorials.
