Faces and hands of very pale subjects, generally redheads. Might seem strange, but every angel painted by Jan vanEyck for example was a pale redhead. Same for most of his contemporaries.
1. Nikon D800/105mm 2.0 DC lens 2. Mamiya RZ65/180mm Portra 160
1. Portrait sessions, especially studio work, in order to learn the most delicate lighting. 2 Medium format film portraits
ditto. What I really need is a mentor to guide me.
Hello, I paint portraits in the manner of the 1400's, especially as saints or angels tho not religious . Learning photography to better understand off-camera lighting, get better detail, make more realistic modellos.
OK so far, but I think a formal series of classes in the craft are in order. Just look at the self-portraits. We all have a great deal to learn, and this these whizbang cameras are keeping many from learning composition and lighting.;
