http://www.smh.com.au/digital-life/cameras/sites-to-really-o...Melbourne photographer Bill Gekas has his work displayed on 1x.com. His speciality is portraiture in general but his most dazzling work is a subset of the genre.Gekas has taken an idea - to make photographs that mimic the painting of the Dutch, Flemish and Italian 17th-century masters - and played with it to great effect. This concept is neither novel nor unique, but his execution of it certainly is (billgekas.com).Using various models, including his five-year-old daughter, Gekas has brilliantly re-imagined the masters, replicating the lighting style for which they are famous. The so-called Rembrandt lighting is characterised by strong window light falling on one side of the subject's face and body, producing shadows amid a rich glow. Gekas uses artificial light to simulate the admired window-lighting effect.Here's a link to Gekas's website.www.billgekas.comPF
