Darius Freeman Photographic Style

For this assignment, I chose Mr. Robot ads to recreate. These ads use a combination of Rembrandt Lighting or Broad Lighting. Sometimes there is a background light but oftentimes there is not because to keep pace with the tone of the show, the ads are very dark with only the subject being lit. Often being shot from straight ahead. To recreate this I shot my model straight on and tried to get a Rembrandt light but my space was too small. I also used a camera flash on the camera for more light. In hindsight, I should have used the softbox on the other side for fill.

    Remember that the flash on your camera is front light. Front light can be very flattering but it is also flat and without character.

    Next time you want a contrasty light, use direct sunlight or window light.
