This shot was taken for my portraiture assignment in college.
We had to select some portrait references and shoot a creative portrait. But I chose a different route. With a few references, I rather decided to shoot something raw and emotional. Something that would send a message without even me explaining the photo.
And this is was the end result.
I don't like to shoot inside studios and am not a big fan of artificial lights. It takes away the rawness from the picture. No offense to other photographers who shoot with artificial lights. A lot of creative work can be done. But it's just my opinion. I'm all in for ambient and natural/outdoor content.
So this is the first and last time I'm posting something with artificial lights.
