I’ve been wanting to shoot my heart-related scars for a while but knew that it would take effective lighting to pull it off. Our next assignment for class is to shoot and print two photos (black and white) using a hot shoe flash both on and off camera. You are getting a sneak peek at what I ‘m pretty sure I’m going to use.
On-shoe photo. In this one you can see the whiteness of the scar and the slight shadow of my pacemaker. I really like the shadows and the composition of this photograph.
Off-shoe photo. Flash was sitting on a table camera right and at camera left I placed a white poster board for a little bit of fill. In this one my pacemaker is much more prominent and the shadow from my hand seems to trace the right side of it.
