Masters of Photo Shooting Assignment

Once you have selected the photographer of your choice from the list below please determine an image(s) or technique of theirs you would like to try and replicate. You task is to mimic their photographic style and aesthetic principles with your own photograph. Imitation is the best form of flattery, and this is your task.


Herman Leonard: known for photographing jazz legends both in portraits and in jazz clubs. Images were black and white with stark contrast and vivid lighting. To mimic his style you could shoot images of an indie band at a show with similar conditions (intense lighting, black and white, high contrast, etc.)

You will be printing out one image of your photographer and one of your own creation in line with their style and technique...
