I was recently in a long conversation with an art professor, who's work I really enjoy. She told me that she would like to see me either go really glossy with my portraits, or go even more grungy than I have before. Typically I'm somewhere in the middle, starting off most portraits with consumer level point and shoots or even camera phones. I started thinking about how some of the most respected glossy fashion photographers such as Terry Richardson (he's a fucking asshole, but you know, made some good pictures) take photos that are actually pretty shitty if you want to come at it from a classic photography background.
So I dusted off my DSL-r and took a series of pictures that will be incorporated into my main body "i'm sorry mom" that I'm currently working on. I'm not sure if this is a direction I want to peruse, but I believe that this is an interesting experiment.
