I was able to shoot one model last class, which was successful. I wanted to create a dark, very masculine, macho mood for my first portrait since the parallel lines painted on his face created a very dynamic and dramatic feeling. The side light and back light which really helped to convey that mood. After several shots, playing around with different lighting positions, the final shot was ideal. In this first shoot I was able to see how effective the lighting will be for these portraits which was intended. For the next shoot, I hope to spend more time experimenting with lighting on the models face and shooting from a different angle which will aid in setting the emotion/mood for each portrait.
