Face to Face
Irving Penn Irving Penn was an American photographer. His work was mainly based on fashion photography, portraits and s=ll life's.
Mind map - self Taking the idea used Irving Pens photos I have decided to take photos of myself. I will be going to use black and red face paint. I want to create a creepy look as Irving Penn has taken from the African tribal with the unique face paint.
Strengths – The main strength of this photo would be the strength of the contrast. The colours are extremely vibrant giving it a unique texture. The composition of the photo is good as the back ground is black it links well with the second photo.
Weaknesses – One of the weaknesses would be that it really saturated which doesn't’t really leave much exposure. If I were to retake this photo I would take it the same however I would leave more exposure when editing.
Face to Face Exhibition .Needs less satura=on and more exposure .like the dark tones, very well edited. .looks creepy but like the idea. .like the technique used in the picture below, out of focus has given a good eﬀect.
Sharon Elphik inspired outcome
Mind map of 2nd set of photos Taking the ideas Rankin has used in his photos I will be taking a set of studio portraits of my cousin. As Rankin uses a lot of props in his photos as well as the person itself I have decided to used a head scarf and diamond gems to add on lips or other parts of the face.
2nd set of Photos
To develop this photo I added extra small diamond gems on the gaps so when I retake the photo it gives it a 3d effect.
