Below are my concept boards for the Day of the Dead shoot. I decided to research quite a lot into this because I wasn’t really sure which direction I should go into. For example, whether to stick to the original bright and bold normal day of the dead location or whether to keep it plain and simple and just focus on the different make up styles. Below are my make up and location boards.
Here are my concept boards for our Sunday Blues shoot which focuses on intimacy and how when it gets to the winter months people begin staying in bed longer and wearing warmer clothes and wanting to spend more time with people in cosy environments. The first board represents the location I want to shoot in. The second relates to the clothes I want them to wear and the final one is for the models and lighting.
Whilst in London, I visited the White Cube Gallery which had the Antony Gormley exhibition on. This mainly looked at space and how to use it and incorporate it into art. I found it an interesting exhibition to go and see because it made me actually think about what I was looking at and why he had done it like that.
This exhibition was on in Brighton and it looked at the African cultures in the different parts of the country. I was really interesting seeing the different fashion styles not only through out the country but compared to our own as well. I found the different textiles and contemporary fashion extremely interesting because of how bright and different they are to other designs and textiles I’ve seen.
For my primary research I went to London and went to a few galleries to see some exhibitions. One being the William Eggleston one which was in the National Portrait Gallery. This meant a lot to me because he has been such a huge inspiration for my work throughout the years, so actually getting to see his work in person was amazing.
After being given the brief, we all sat down as a group and began thinking of different ideas and concepts for our magazine. We decided to focus on the seasonal change and make our magazine quarterly so that each issue would fit with whatever season it was. Below is my planning of what would be included in the magazine and where to begin researching.
