For my final project, I am interested in doing portraits within fashion photography. I want to incorporate colors from either the clothes or background element. I could potentially do them as full body portraits.
I chose these photographs because of its use of soft shadows. In some, there are touches of color from the light, and I also like the full body and mid shots for portraits.
For this homework, I chose the Netflix series, Queen’s Gambit. The lighting is soft. There is a main light on the front 45-degree angle, with a soft fill light on the opposite side. The lighting style is similar to Rembrandt lighting as there appears to be a slight triangle under her eye on the fill side. In terms of portrait style, the photographs were mostly mid-shots and tight close ups.
I tried to replicate the main light at a 45-degree angle and add some fill on the opposite side. There were some contrasts in shadow on the fill side so to create a slight Rembrandt triangle. In terms of shots, I brought it closer but kept it as a mid-shot. Finally, I like the small reflection from the table.
