JB Homework Sessions: Photographing the Face
I am really loving these challenges! I am hoping that over time more and more people will share their work (we have a hashtag, peeps: #jbhomeworksessions)!! I am loving the feedback from these sessions and I know that we photographers can grow quickly if we band together.
So today I bring you the second challenge!! Jenna is my little sister (which you already know) and she is our JB editor. This girl is rocking all of our shoots and we will be taking *official* headshots of her soon so that you can get to know her a bit. Who knows?! Maybe she will guest post and take you behind the scenes for some editing!
Only photograph the subject’s face.
THE PURPOSE OF THE CHALLENGE
To connect with your subject and find a creative way of shooting details that involved the subject's face.
What I learned
This was more like it! In the first challenge, you couldn't photograph the subject's face. I realized during that challenge that the face just might be the most important part of a shoot (you can read and see the shoot here)! The second challenge was to only photograph the subject's face.
I incorpoorated details around the subject's face and also photographed the jaw line, lips, and eye lids.
Gear: Canon 5D Mark iii, Canon 50 L, Profoto Reflector Setting: We shot in the last 30 minutes of the day and there was hardly any light due to a storm rolling in. I threw the reflector on the ground to bounce some light back onto Jenna and we were all set!
