Art 3233: Studio Lighting
There are twelve images total that make the series.
My idea for the project was to show how society views black men and how they feel they would like to be viewed by society. It was very interesting to see how these people actually feel on the topic. I used a two light setup one light pointing on the subject and a light pointing towards the background to separate them. They felt very strong about the subject based off their reactions and ideas they gave me. I feel they decided to show a good side of the concept I was going for, due to them putting together their own ideas for the overall theme. I only presented the topic to them, but I let them decide mostly on how to execute the idea. I wanted to have ten people, but majority of the people I had did not commit to the project or wanted to do something different which did not fit the concept. The overall idea is to show how each individual feels and capture their own emotions into the camera.
