Final Major Project: 1:1 Summary Notes – 15th March 2018
Notes from my recent 1:1 with Wendy McMurdo – recorded here for reference and action.
We discussed my progress to date and considered images from recent shoots.
Key points for consideration:-
Consider the work of:-
French and Saunders – contouring
Thomas Ruff – early portraits
Banier – furniture bondage
Bonajo – Source Magazine – wigs
Valerie Belin – Mannequins
Deadpan face in all
3 or 5 images in a series
Still life images of masks and prosthetics
Mr Potato Head?
Overload the face with makeup – even more extreme
Consider the visual anthology
Pay attention to detail
White backdrop may be preferable
Use of ring flash?
Sketches – take to each shoot
Turning into a self portrait project
Eye lashes top and bottom work well
