I think this was actually one of my best replications. Using a lamp, I artificially lit the space from the direction I wanted, and was able to create this contrast that was very similar to the original photo. Again, I used newspaper the separate the subject from the surrounding ground, which allows the photo to catch a little more light. However, the whiteness of the wall behind the subject is a bit distracting, and the photo would have been more successful if it was darker.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
