The past couple of weeks I have been very busy, we have finalised 3 main shoots so far and I am very happy with them. Although I feel as if I have been doing most of the work for the photoshoots such as the digital and film photography, styling, directing and planning so far, I don’t really mind as I enjoy doing it, as long as I get credit for it. We plan our shoots in our instagram group chat in order to see everyone’s availability and their ideas for the coming shoot, but I have found that half of the time my group doesn’t turn up. And the other half of the time I end up doing the styling and most of the photography. I have communicated to the photographer and stylist that it’s important for us all to engage and help out and I think they will be engaging more from now on. Freya our photographer has been more interactive in order to plan shoots and has made a go fund me to raise money for printing the magazine. Rachel our stylist has also helped with visualising the styling by providing mood boards.
I have created a custom filter that I have been adjusting to all our shoots so that our images fit the same aesthetic and theme. I have also been taking photos with b&w & colour film photography. I have just got the b&w film developed and I’m very happy with them! Some images capture shadows of people in their natural form on the beach! It’s very wholesome and really captures the raw honest reflections of human connections.
