Freckles - The Project
July 12, 2015 • 1 Comment
Whether many, or just a sprinkling, I love the natural beauty that freckles hold. Hence how my project, aptly named "Freckles", came about.
I want to photograph various freckled faces; male faces, female faces, young faces, not so young faces. All with freckles.
The shoot will be consistent in using a manual focus art lens called a Petzval Lens. This is a remastered lens from a gentleman named Joseph Petzval who originally designed the lens in 1840.
I will aim to produce black and white photos to bring out the freckles as strongly and clearly as possible. I want people to see these photos of freckles as they can appear, photographically, through a camera lens.
So far I've had the pleasure of working with three amazing people who have graced me with their freckles and you can see the images below.
Update (19th July 2015) - A new addition to the project!
Update (3rd August 2015) - More faces for the project!
This is an ongoing project and I will be searching for anyone who has freckles.. If you have freckles and would like to be a part of this project, please get in touch!
