Through the Lights is meant to demonstrate how artificial lighting can dramatically change a subject’s facial features. In today’s beauty/glamour photography, there is a lot of technical care that goes into a photograph in order to portray someone in the best light, creating unachievable beauty standards, especially for women. As photographers, we are often contributing to these unachievable standards through the power of studio lighting. Countless times, I have found that the lighting can shape a face in a way that the subject no longer looks like their real self. Here, we can see the light transitions and lighting variations changing the appearance of the model, almost making it look like there are different models throughout the series. This series illustrates how our goals in creating the best images can negatively add to the nearly impossible beauty standards in today’s society.
