Anglepoise Portrait’s

Anglepoise Portrait’s

This is my continuation from the collaborative project between Anglepoise Lamps, Strong Island and The University Of Portsmouth, see Creating Balance site for more details: http://creatingbalanceproject.tumblr.com 

I wanted to continue producing portraits of fellow creative artists that all contain a purposely adapted Anglepoise lamp. With the lamp I took out the original lamp holder and replaced it with a wirelessly triggered flash gun that could be activated by my large format field camera. I aimed to compose a sense of physical balance within the portraits through the individual sitters stance and body language. 

One last element I used that can be somewhat cliched was incorporating the tilt/swing selective focus technique or the Anti-Scheimpflug. Overall a pleasing series with some good results.
