Rankin. Shooting the Hollywood Stars

Shooting the Hollywood Stars BBC2  Saturday 8/1/2011

Watched this television programme  showing the British photographer Rankin re-creating iconic Hollywood portraits ,which involved very careful planning and expert lighting techniques.  A  really interesting programme, Rankin  commented that “photography has sustained the icons over the last century“. He  discusses the challenge the harsh LA sunlight caused, preferring cloud cover or the “fragile light” of early morning.  Watching him review his contact images and choosing the best frame brought back to mind exercise 6,Best of a sequence. His aim is “to take you on a journey” and create an image that “evokes an emotion” .
