Hello, I am taking art photography at school this year. We are required to complete a 3-board folio of our photography, and must show consistency in theme as well as develop our ideas using artist models. Before starting this folio, it's necessary that we choose at least 3 artist models to work with. I have so far only chosen my first; Nikolai Andreev. For those of you who are familiar with Andreev's work, and with editing digital photos, how might I go about making my own photo lighting closely resemble the powerful lighting techniques used by Andreev? Here is what I have been able to achieve so far: The camera I'm using is a Nikon D40. Any help will be very much appreciated, as I only started taking amateur photos last October. Also, does anyone know of other art photographers who use unique techniques that I might try to bring into my own work, as per the requirements for 3 artist models? Thanks.
