Hayley Wright: Best Six Images


The Power of a Portrait 

Over the course of this last year, I have developed a deeper understanding and a true passion for portraiture. This is now something that I want to go into professionally. In this selection, I’ve stepped outside my comfort zone to try self-portraiture.

Using a range of different lighting, from natural sunlight to the studio lights, I have been able to work and experiment with multiple styles of lighting and how they overall affect the final image. Some of my images offer a ‘story telling’ element, for example, the photograph of the adult looking at the barbie doll was from my final project and was part of a theme of work titled “Childhood Influences”. 

My work over this last year has slowly begun to develop, along with a new sense of confidence and I wanted to be able to choose images which reflected these statements.
