Compare this look from the other two we did that afternoon and they look different, yes? I mean the first two kinda look similar cause they both have clean lighting whereas this third one is a bit…well…let’s just say I broke a few of my own rules in this shot.

Hang the code. Hang the rules. They’re more like guidelines anyway.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

I’ve done a lot of test and portfolio shoots before and they all seem quite the same no matter how different the outfit, the hair, or the makeup is. That’s what they called “style”, I guess….photographically speaking of course. Photographers have a particular way of doing things – light positioning, composition, lighting ratios, etc – that tend to remain constant every single time. As good as it is to have that consistency, it is a bit counterproductive in test and portfolio shoots because the model’s new book will look like it was shot by the same photographer. I figured the only way to get around this was to break some rules and shoot differently.
