F2 - editorial -Shooting a Theatrical Portrait .
I'm very pleased to have an editorial spread in F2 Freelance Photographer.my recent shoot at The Barn Studios of a certain Mr Seymour Stiffs . A gentleman who is currently at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and I hear,is knocking em dead !
Shooting portraits in the studio of a theatrical character has great potential, however ,when the persona is a larger than life original ,its about getting the essence of his genius . I was pleased that the concept of his alter ego been a 'dark creature' could have gone so wrong, but a simple shadow works on many levels, it's theatrical and the symbol of the horned shadow is a powerful one.
