Steve McCurry’s National Geographic Image – The Subject of My Latest Photography Project

My latest project is to emulate one of Steve McCurry’s most recognizable and famous images. The first image is (obviously) Steve McCurry’s image, and the second image is my emulation of this striking image. This proved to be a difficult task but Sarah (my model) was great, she even volunteered to put paper towels in her mouth to round out her strong jaw-line. We painted her face with brown water-color paints and even used some chapstick to try to get a little “sweat” shine. The fabric proved the toughest aspect, but overall it was a fun learning experience and a challenge.
