For this project, I wanted to make a statement about how an object can start off as something nostalgic, but over time, begins to lose its meaning. I photographed a pair of shoes, the shoes that I wore to junior prom. I tried to photograph them in a way that made them appear precious, almost like a product ad, but if you look closely, you can see the scuffs and dirt marks on the shoes that have come from carelessness.
For this task, we set up two lights shining onto the model. One light (the fill light) was kept at a steady reading of 4, while the other was (the key light) decreased in between shots to create the ratios.
