Whisper High Key Portrait
Not in the literal sense. I do know that as I develop my works I have words that slowly ease their way through my mind. I am always indulging in all of my senses in order to find the most appropriate names. Whisper feels right. This goes in line with the quality of the session. The Whisper High Key Portrait intent was to produce a noticeably tint-based portrait session with Adorned In Taji and Honey. Something that is akin to traditional portraiture but leans into the flat commercial look with a bit of depth that rounds out using saturation and the contrasting skin tone.
Why High Key?
Well, when most of your hangs/leans heavy towards one end of the spectrum, you challenge yourself to step outside your box. That is what I am doing with “Whisper”. The name describes the soft, powdery feel of a whisper… the gentle gust of wind when starting a whisper. Beautiful, delicate, and very intentional. Everything I create is with intention. This could very well be the Virgo Photographer in me, but who knows. All I do know is that I wanted to switch to a prime only shoot.
Why Prime Only?
Most of my work requires me to pull in my use of my 24-70 2.8 or my 70-200 2.8. This can be a bit limiting if you become dependent on zooming. I find comfort in certain primes and how they work. So for this, I choose to utilize my 105mc 2.8. This is an absolutely stellar option for portraits and headshots. I knew the quality I would want, this lens will handle with little to no problems. And it does not disappoint. One of the things you learn along the way is that when working with people you have built a relationship with, you will end up with some of the most amazing work you’ve created. As a result, this was that.
