Fears and Obsessions

Posted on Updated on

For this assignment you have to produce a number of digital photographs on the theme of “Fears and Obsession”. You will need to plan your photo-shoot and consider the type of lighting most suitable for the style of your photos. All work need to be shot in the photographic studio. You will experiment with high-key and low-key lighting and use a reference white/mid gray card, in order to set your White Balance in ACR later. A strong concept and the right props, combined with the appropriate image manipulation techniques, could produce outstanding outcomes. For the final submission you need to choose two digital images and manipulate them in Adobe Photoshop.

For this assignment I opted to depict the actual bodily sensations one feels when experiencing fear or obsession, rather than represent a specific obsession or fear. The images were converted to black-and-white and then given an overall colour to emphasise the feeling depicted, fear being a rather cold emotion and obsession a warm one. With special thanks to my awesome photographic actress/colleague photographer Katerina.
