Contemporary Portraits

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 L series lens

Here are a few images from a class excursion dealing with contemporary portraiture. The word contemporary means modern or non-traditional and, to my mind, the graffiti laden background is enough to classify these images as non-traditional.

I’ve employed Adobe Lightroom 2 to produce two different results. The image at the top of this page features a relatively gentle rendering of the scene while the second image has undergone more aggressive processing and displays the beginning of an almost cartoon-like appearance.

Great fun was had by all and special thanks to Kelly for modelling.
