Posted by with 2 Comments

Assignment Part A:

A portrait / still life illustrating this phrase: “Hitting the Wall”. What does that mean to you? What context does it offer up for a view of how that image should be portrayed.

I am allowing portraits AND still life to make sure that you can do this in your style.

It could be funny or it could be sad or angry even…

We have all used the term “Hitting the Wall” before and we all know what it means to us.

Explain that to us in a photograph.

Color or BW / Wide or Tall.

More…

Assignment Part B:

Light and shadow… use them. In the above photograph, I want a dramatic representation of a dramatic statement. I want you to USE light to help make that statement.

Glows, Fill, Beat the Sun, Overexposed Areas, Shadows, Bounced, Edge Lighting, Grid Spots/Snoots, Silver reflectors, Mirrors, Storbs, Big Studio Lights, Candles… whatever you do, make sure you USE light to help sell the image.

Yes the subject matters, but we are now going to add LIGHT as an element all its own.

This is ONE image assignment… concept must be strong, but make sure you have “LIGHT” as one of your key ingredients.

    Hey Don,

    So, this is still ONE image we are creating interpreting the theme, “hitting the wall” and using light/shadow to accentuate that?

    Or are we doing two images, a Part A and Part B?

    Sorry, I’m an ass:
