Photographing Rhea

I was able to take photographs of a fellow foundation student to help me with my FMP work. Rhea very kindly posed for me using a special photography suit and also using college camera equipment.
My tutor Jo helped me set up the equipment and get the lighting correct. I wanted enough light on Rhea but also I wanted to be able to see shadow too. Shadow is very important when painting especially as it helps you create the image more accurately.

The following the photos are all from the one shoot which I did with Rhea.

I was able to put Rhea into specific poses which I felt were more interesting than your classic poses. I want to show more motion in the images I would be creating fro the photos I took. Rhea was a very co-operative model and she was really patient and also had some good idea which helped me when I was taking the photos.
I was really grateful Rhea let me take these pictures because I thought that it was really important that I use my own photographs for my FMP work. I got a great range of photos from Rhea and from these was able to create some great ideas in my sketchbook and eventually take those ideas and transfer them into canvas’ using acrylic and also into some linear drawings.
