My next shoot for the Creative52 challenge was difficult. I never took a portrait of someone without showing the individuals face. The idea of not showing the face felt odd to me. Usually, the whole point of a portrait is normally showing the face with a strong focus on the eyes. It was difficult for me to find a model for the shoot due to either scheduling or my friends fleeing in panic knowing the what I would possibly do to them with a photo shoot. After some consideration, I figured this would be a good way to show a lack of identity. We always seem to grasp our identity with an iron fist. No one ever really wants to let go of who we are as a person. Could I let go of my own identity for a shoot? Can I bring out who I am as a person without showing my face? I think I did. I used the hood of my hoodie to obscure my face. I can’t say I have a rockin bod, but it’s a work in progress lol. I took these in my living room with a 5×8 collapsible backdrop, a 24×36 softbox with 1/4 power speedlite at 45 degrees and a silver reflector to my right.
