By mid-2020, I had undertaken projection portraiture sessions with several professional models. These resulted in portraits that were something of a cross between body painting and abstract art. The professional models knew how to pose, and they were quite comfortable with their bodies and with posing in a near-dark room with a mini-beamer shining in their eyes. This made me wonder how a projection portraiture session would turn out if "real people" were the subject of a shoot.
To answer this question, I approached two relatives to ask if they would like to try a projection portraiture session. Each subject was asked to select images that they'd like to have projected onto themselves. One selected images of birds and flowers, and the other selected dark abstract images.
The projection photo-shoot with the two "real people" went well. Sessions were conducted with the two women together, and with each separately. In practice, there were far fewer differences between working with professional and amateur subjects than I had expected there might be.
