Old Masters-like portrait photography

Old Masters-like portrait photography Have you ever dreamt of having your portrait done in the style of Old Masters? Portrait photography has fundamentally changed the way art is created and perceived in the modern day. It is now possible for a photograph to look so painting-like in colour and lighting and charm a viewer the same way as the painting would. How it is possible to produce the effect and feel of a painting using a camera? It’s the lighting, colour, composition, proper posing, mood and expressions of the subject that make photographs look like paintings. And then the treatment in Photoshop to finish the portrait off. “When all the parts come together – it creates the atmosphere of the old masters works. It is very important to think of the outfit, backgrounds, colour choices, the pose and the right expression. And, of course, the light which is the key. Shadows are as important as highlights.

New Zealand short break

North Island, August 2013 Having twelve days of bliss, away from the studio, moseying around the North Island of New Zealand. We’ve been very fortunate to have the chance to take this break. What a beautiful country! Everywhere you turn, sights amaze you. Just when you think there couldn’t be something more beautiful than what you’ve just seen; something else pops up. Steam vents, volcanoes, glow worms, geysers, white lions – just to give a small taste of what we’ve experienced. Today, I found my muse – a local girl from Taupo. Just so happens, she wants to be model and leapt at the chance for me to photograph her. I probably shall blog more about this mystery girl; and can’t wait to show what we created together; but for now, here is a brief, uncut, unedited video of behind the scenes to tease you about what is coming! Can you imagine what I will do with these images? Tell me what you think may happen, and lets see who comes closest. Kira on location, Taupo NZ.
