With this shoot I attempted to use flash heads in the background to make it looks as though they were flash bulbs and so got the model to look and act as though she was a high profile person. However in the end I did not like the images with the flash heads in the background but did like the shots I received with the glare coming in the corner.
The last two images of the the gallery are influenced by Melissa Rodwell with the light being on one side casting a shadow across most of the face to give form, interest and shape to the model and image.
With this shoot I was again involved with the second year fashion students with the 1940’s clothing. With this shoot however they were undecided to use this corner for their shoot, but i managed to convince them and to me it worked better than the other shoot.
Their idea for this wasto have the model on a plinth and have people in white looking at her as though she was an exhibit. I was not to keen on this so i asked if i could shoot the model on her own int he corner for a bit. the pose of the model brings back the femininity to the image as in the 40’s they were mostly covered to be practical and not to distracting to other people.
Overall I am happy with the outcome but the image itself would be a bit sharper. I could of also blanked off the far left blinds to stop them being too bright to take out some of the distraction. The monochrome effect is to relate back to the period of time and resemble the black and white of films as colour film would have been rare with rationing and even more expensive. To make it more modern and contemporary the location is a modern gallery room with modern items like newer style blinds and ceiling pieces.
For this first shoot I worked with the Fashion students from Coventry University. Luckily they were using 1940’s clothing. There idea for this shoot was to have her in a modern cafe before going to a ball.
Out of the above selection I think I prefer the sepia and black and white images. These images best represent the period and i do not like the colours within the other images. Furthermore I would of chosen a different location with the streets shots as I do not like the lamposts and traffic within the background, plus the sun was too bright and almost blew out the details on the models face.
