As this project has been dragging for too long, we decided to do our own tests. The problem: How do you shoot profile pictures without a proper team of producer, talents & stylist? In short, no proper team & budget allocation to take this project seriously. Proposed solution: Snapshots in black & white with close up lens(to avoid hard to match colours & materials, & easier for retouching). While in full colour these pictures actually looked quite ugly, the black & white transition & the close up lens effect could project them with a ‘documentary’ look & feel.
No idea is intended yet for these pictures. If anyone has ideas to turn these into interesting messages, please feel free to suggest.
