Decoy: A Portrait Session With a Twist | Is a photograph shaped by the person behind the camera, or is it all about the person in front of the camera?

So what do you think? Is a photograph shaped by the person behind the camera, or is it all about the person in front of the camera? The Lab decided to set up a little experiment to test the outcome, they called it “Decoy”. The team invited six photographers to a portrait session, each will be photographing the same individual – but there’s a twist…

The Lab was created to help push you further as a photographer. Ask yourself, what are you doing to really push your creativity? Does it go beyond apertures and histograms and those perfect exposures? The Lab is a series of experiments that are designed to take photographers out of their comfort zones, get them thinking and shooting, in a different way.
