Artist's Description

This is an experiment in preparation for the final assignment in my portrait class.

The theme is In the manner of…, and consists in creating an image inspired from, or reproducing a photo that we like from another photographer.

The goal of this exercise is to gain a better knowledge of lighting setups and post-processing, by practising until we get it right. When we finally succed, we should have learned a thing or two in the process…

I chose a photo by Tom Hoops published in the February 2009 issue of Digital SLR Photography . Unfortunately, that specific image cannot be found on his website.

The final shot will be made with a different and more exotic model (a gorgeous girl named Hillary), and not my son Jonathan who did a great job nonetheless, helping me quite a bit.

Focal length 62 mm
ISO-100
Aperture f/4,5
Shutter 1/60 sec.

Nikon D60
AF Zoom Nikkor 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5

Shot hand held in manual mode with manual focus, model sitting just a bit inside of a doorway, with a dark background. He was lit by the natural light from outside, no flash fired. I was standing outside to make the shot.

Processed in Lightroom 2.6 and Photoshop CS4.
