The missing bodiesCMA
Here is the final excerpt of the CMA sessions. The (rather cryptic) theme this time was : body and narration. The goal was to create a story with a succession of 4 – 6 photos.
This article is important to me as, for the first time, I was handling a studio by myself. On top of that, I played with gels (color filters), which was also new. I learnt a great deal, but it also convinced me I wanted to do more portraiture.
As usual, there’s no photoshopping in these shots. The backgrounds are all raw or obtained with lights.
Facing the enigmaCMA
Here is another example of the CMA sessions. The exercise this time aimed at shooting a portrait revealing an important trait of the subject.
The last manCMA
This time, the shooting was about object photography. Not quite my forte or my goal, but it was interesting to make something of it and learn. No photoshopping involved in these pictures (or any other on this blog). The rhino isn’t cutout, the whole background was built with lights.
Framed – UnframedCMA
Flashback to my CMA spring training session after this long break ! Not totally happy with the result but it’s the point of training, isn’t it ? In this case, the idea was to practice framing and “breaking” the frame.
First of the CMA series, dedicated to the product a studio photography class, is Acces-sorry. A tribute to improvisation and desperate research for ideas, or when creativity is forced.
