Ye Olde Portraits (round one) January 2010

for a while I’ve been wanting to do a series of old 1800’s style portraits. in the style of Mathew Brady or other antique studio portraits. I’ve always loved antique photos and get a lot of inspiration for still life from them. this is the first test set. more of a rough draft. I had the subject (Matt Lippy) come dressed his best, and set up an old style studio setting in my living room. This is going to be a long running project as I collect more antique clothes and stuff. I decided on a gold tritone for two of these but I’m pretty sure the final idea will be just black and white.
