Test shoot

Today we have done our test shoot. We decided that we would shoot our model in a photography studio so we could get really clean shots and see what looks worked the best.  We had to learn how to set up a shoot and were very proud of what we achieved as we had no help and have never done anything like this before.

We used the shoot not only to practice setting up the set but to test the  make up and hair looks.We used inspiration we had got from our mood boards and came up with the idea of using gems on her eyebrows and wire round here neck for a futuristic modern look. We had a lot of fun and were really happy with the results that we achieved. We have both agreed that shooting in a studio had such a strong impact and loved the outcome of the photos. That we will use a studio to get our final images instead of shooting on location.

Start of Mood Boards

After London we started to make our mood boards. We have started two so far, one being our   Photography board where we put our photos from London and where we will put our test shoots when we do them. Our second board is our Styling board this is where we have put make -up, poses and clothes ideas of what we might use on final shoot. I’m quite proud of our work so far and think our ideas are staring to come together. We will next test make up looks and prepare for our test shoots.


Trip to London

We went up to London to help us get inspiration for our current module. Even though the weather was awful we had a really nice time. We went all around London and took loads of photos of buildings. We loved how big and dominating they were and loved all the shapes they made. Our favourite one’s were the Shard, The gherkin and the barbican. I loved the urban flats and buildings as well and the clean modern glass buildings. We came up with the idea of using a model to represent the buildings and creating something very minimal and futuristic. These are a few of my favourite pictures;
