This is my final piece for Unit 1, it depicts the struggle of a teenager who has been physically restrained due to what could be a mental condition. The light used is only from one very small source which allowed be to be very directional with where I placed it from, this meant that there was alot of focus on her eyes as they were deeply shadowed. The way in which the model used looked directly into the camera would suggest that she is not afraid and actually gives off a sinister impression.

The photo was edited in Photoshop (see below) to turn what appeared to be a white light into one that was much redder, i also changed the shadow levels to exaggerate what was previously mentioned about the eyes. Overall this piece was a great success and the physical side of how it was achieved can be viewed by the images featured below…
