This photo is part of a music based shoot I did last year. The shoot was based around my emotional reaction to music using colour and light. I got the effects by projecting colours and shapes on to my subject. At the end of the project I designed and produced record sleeves using InDesign and made 3 A3 Portraits.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a blacked out studio at a college I attended before moving on to university
Time
Im not 100% sure what time of day this would of been as it was a few years ago now. If I remember correctly it was taken during college/school hours so would of been between 9 am and 3pm this made it difficult to completely black out the room, due to the time of year the photo was taken.
Lighting
The lightning in this photo is souly a projection of colour, there are no other studio lights, off or on Camera lights involved. This was interesting to work with as the light was not as easy to contol as a studio light, it was more widespread and harsh, making photos alot harder to get.
Equipment
The equipment for this shoot was quite simple all that was needed was my camera ( 1200D) with a kit lens ( 18-55). A tripod was used as each photo was at least a 5 second exposure due to the lack of colour in the projections. Projector was used to create the lighting effects, this was connected to a Mac where I found the colours used. Photoshop was used to ammend any level/ contrast issues in post production
Inspiration
Music has always been a massive part of my life, it has gotten me through alot of personal issues. When I hear sound I see different colours, when starting a project I found this was a form of synesthesia ( meaning people hear, see, smell or taste something when in a certain situation) I wanted to see how many other people experienced this in life or if it was rare I asked subjects to listen to a song and shout/pick colours they felt related to it, to my surprise people did relate songs to colours. I projected the chosen colours onto the subject which lead to the photo "Sound of Colour" As the projected developed I got the same people to listen to a song I chose to test them more, this developed into an Album series that went up at my end of year art show.
Editing
Yes but only minimal, I only used post production to change any level or contrast issues the camera had with the projection of light.
In my camera bag
I usually carry my Canon 1200D, Kit lens ( 18-55mm), My f 1.8 50mm Spare battery Spare memory card dust removal kit often I carry around my Pentax film camera as I like to be in the darkroom whenever I can
Feedback
When trying to achieve a photo like this, the darker the room the better. You want the least amount of any light natrual or non, any light can alter the photograph dramatically. Use high intense colours as the darker ones don't tend to look as effective, try to avoid using black and white as this make it hard to see facial expressions/features. Use RAW!!, this allows to bring back any detail lost! Unless your looking for a blurred effect use a tripod as these will be long exposures and hand shake will be picked up most of all be creative and be yourself, its an enjoyable project!
