Dark Portraits is a series of photographs based around the notion of creating a dark and dramatic atmosphere to portray mood and atmosphere within contemporary portrait photography. Finding influence from Film Noir and contemporary photographers, such as Dan Winters, I have shaped the light and shadow to create drama and tension in the photographs. Over time I have developed a keen interest and passion for portrait photography over the duration of my degree, and I intend to continue my exploration in the future. Being slightly colour blind, I want to incorporate this into my photos by toning the colours down to create a lack of vibrancy and mood, as well as portraying a cinematic feel to the images.
