Pop Art Portrait


In general my photography style is fairly straightforward. Find a subject, light it simply, follow a few basic rules of composition and shoot. Follow up with basic adjustments in Photoshop and the image either works or it doesn’t.

It’s good to shake things up once in awhile and that’s exactly why I’m taking a class in digital illustration. One of our assignments was to produce a pop-art portrait. Of course, Warhol was the king of pop-art but I drew my inspiration from Roy Lichtenstein. I preferred Lichtenstein’s single images, over Warhol’s repeating images.
