    studio assignment, food, portraiture, products

    I've got to 'critically analyse' one food photographer, one portrait photographer and one product photographer that do studio work for my studio practice assignment. Any reccomendations as usual would be great.

    concerning the food photographer, I have read these articles of Michael Ray with great interest (I don't know how much you're into food photographing):

    You could use Irving Penn for all 3.

    Google "Ben Fink" for food - I think you'll be impressed.

    For portraits: Patrick Demarchelier, Jeanloup Sieff and Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.

    In regards to portrait photography I really like square format black and white stuff like horst p horst, but would like to look at work by someone who does something similar. I've just got a 135mm lens for my C330S and can't wait to try it out in the studio. I'll probably look for a 180mm lens in the near future

    For my final shoot where we had to choose one of the four areas I chose fashion which I haven't mentioned here. I went with punk fashion. Here's one of the photos I took. If you know of any photographers that might be of similar style that'd be a great help too.

    Craig McDean shoot/shoots 8x10 fashion, and he was also interested early on with the culture of the UK punk/skinhead. But there's nothing about his work that is dependent on large format; he uses digi too, and there's no difference in the printed page. Unlike say, Paolo Roversi, who's look is tied heavily with 8x10.
