A Photographic Exploration of Arnold Newman
This is a historical study of portraiture used as a guide to take portraits in the same style. At the conclusion of the project, I not only had taken a large number of portraits, but had also found my own style. The project considered the use of studio lighting, which is very important to portraiture—many portraits play with lighting to create various effects or simply cast part of a person’s face in shadow. Mounting and presentation of portraits is essential and wide ranges of options are available. For the presentation at the Honors Conference, I will show and speak about the styles I mimicked and then do the same with my own work.
