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


Image considerations:-

  • Deadpan face in all

  • Careful composition

  • 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

  • High resolution

  • Scale?

  • Pay attention to detail

  • White backdrop may be preferable

  • Use of ring flash?

  • Sketches – take to each shoot

  • Typology

  • Plastic surgery?

  • Turning into a self portrait project

  • Eye lashes top and bottom work well
