As discussed in my previous post, I am studying commercial portrait artists as part of a workshop led by Don Giannatti of Lighting Essentials for Photographers. The point of the workshop is to explore different styles and point of views, and to study the techniques that were used to create the portraits. In turn, we can expand the “toolbox” of our skill set.
This week we studied Sarah Moon (warning: there is some nudity on the linked site). The images above are my portraits inspired by her body of work. Her style is definitely a departure from what I would normally shoot. However, it was fun to create some images that are out of my comfort zone.
What do you think of her work? Moon has had a long career as a commercial photographer. She has shot for Vogue, Marie Claire, and Italian Vogue to name a few. Also, fairly recently, she shot for a new Chanel campaign.
P.S. Many thanks to my mother and my niece for being such great subjects!
