My main moodboard will be online at: http://pinterest.com/richy1311/the-mannion-project/
I chose the "House" image as my cover shot (and included the full uncropped version below) because it conveys what I like most in a portrait - intense detail, bright colours, great expression and humour / character.
My aim for this project is to create an image that goes a little further than my portraits to date (at http://www.blackpixel.co.uk/portraits if you're interested!).
I intend to:
- find a model who is able to open up and be "playful" in front of the camera
- try working with coloured lighting
- include props to convey a message
- potentially involve a Makeup Artist
- experiment with adding graphic elements during the edit
- take onboard whatever suggestions JM has for creating a powerful portrait!
Some amazing images:
