Haven’t had a lot of time to process my Karijini images, but I thought I’d take a break from the landscapes to do a stylistic portrait of Mr. Eastway.
We were out doing a sunset shoot of trees. While the trees were pretty cool I just couldn’t get excited about shooting them, so I pulled out my strobe and thought I’d do some experimenting of some stylistic portrait shots. I cranked the flash up to full power and “nuked” Peter as I was shooting him straight into the setting sun. Thats not a sunburn he’s got, thats radiation from the photons I was hitting him with from my flash gun.
I’ve deliberately not processed this photo normally, I am aiming for an over-the-top very stylised portrait rather than a “real portrait”.
What do you think? Too over the top or cool?
Look forward to your thoughts
