Exploring Hinduism...

Hey! Hey!

Hope you’re all good :) 

Okay, so I’ve attached a couple examples of my work (the two pix below), so you can see where I’m starting from, then, a mood board for where I would like to go with a project I am currently putting together—any feedback/suggestions as to how I can take what I do and try and get it to where I want to be would be appreciated…

Mood board…

Okay, so I appreciate my mood board may look a tad on the strange side but I hope my explanation will help bring some clarity…

The project that I am working on is based on Hinduism, so the reason I chose the pix on my mood board are as follows…

I would like to capture my subjects vulnerability like Avedon did with his Monroe shot. I love to incorporate texture into pictures, and would like to be able to use subtle colours that would give a big impact as illustrated through Van Gogh’s self portrait for my formal portraits. The idea of stolen intimate moments: like that of Bresson’s Romania pic—I think these could work beautifully within my project of Hinduism- perhaps of people in worship, or reflective moments. The picture illustrating Hinduism shows an example of the vibrant colours that are used to illustrate the religion, which make me want to use strong colours in perhaps some detailed pix, not necessarily the portraits. Steve McCurry’s girl with a green shawl just instantly draws me in, the eye contact is amazing and just makes me want to know more, I want people to want to know more about the people I’ll photograph. Bresson’s France pic is simple yet strong, the lines and framing that draws you in to this lone person who stands tall- I’d like to include some strong yet simple environmental portraits. The Gandhi paining is soft in colour and approachable which I think is important to try and incorporate at times given the nature of my project. Finally the pic of Avedon at work—I’d like to create the kind of set up to shoot a number of the formal portraits—outside, simple backdrop, with natural sunlight as the main light source.
