Final Project- Kelly-Ann Thompson

Topic:  My topic is painted face portraits. I want to communicate individuality and how different lighting is able to create different moods and emotions. I plan on using regular and glow in the dark face paint.  I do intend to use this as a future advertising campaign, and also to have some portraits.

Subject Matter: The subject matter will be models faces, face paint- both regular and glow in the dark.

Style: Each portrait will convey a different style in relation to the abstract art painted on their faces. This means the lighting will be different for each model. However, I think a black background will be kept consistent throughout each portrait, (this is subject to change). The faces will be centered, since it is the main focus.

Lighting: The lighting is key to this project, this is what I will use to create the emotion and mood for each individual, in order to tell a store and bring the face paint to life, especially the glow in the dark ones. So therefore it will be all different lighting used (side lighting, front, backlight, e.t.c) what is best suited for the emotion I’ll be conveying.

Props: The most that will be used is a stool for the model to be seated while shooting. This project will show my lighting skills combined with my design skills hands on.

    I looked up glow in the dark photography and I don’t think you will be able to do that. Too complicated and involves long exposures which will make it impossible to get a sharp photo of the model. And if you look at the example here, there is an issue with sharpness as well.
