Recently I stumbled across an image of director David Lynch shot by Nadav Kander which injected me with a firey does of inspiration. The portrait’s tone got me wanting to mess around with ways to colour images of my own. I am a huge fan of portraiture and Kander’s approach has lit a fire under my ass. So much so that on the same day I shot off three pics of family and friends. This is my first attempt and is pretty much copycat but I’m gonna expand and refine a technique of my own off of these. I have a whole series in mind I want to shoot, so keep your eyes peeled.
The last shot of Jacki (www.jackibruniquel.com) was shot just after she was done cutting onions. She walked out the kitchen all teary-eyed so I asked her play along. Can’t help but wanting to give her a hug and tell her that in the end everything will be alright, if it’s not, it’s not the end!
