Eye Candy (Creative Photography) by Mathew Guido
2018 - 2019, Platinum A' Photography and Photo Manipulation Design Award Winner
The inspiration for this series takes place at the intersection of Rembrandt lighting and the fantasy world of anime. I really wanted to push the limits of light and colour in this series but in a way that felt real and not over-produced.
Instead of shooting in a controlled studio environment with professional lights, he decided to shoot his model wearing sunglasses in dark environments, lit only by the neon and street lights. The emphasis of the series is on the different sunglasses worn by the model in every image, bathed in vibrant neon lights from signboards on the streets at night. Consequently the images are strongly biased to the color tones of the specific neon lights near the model, creating interesting low key results
Design Challenges
The hardest part of this project was photographing portraits in low light with a slow shutter speed.
Production Technology
This project was photographed with the Nikon D800 with a 50mm lens.
