RUDEBOI PHOTOSHOOT

For my second photoshoot, the initial theme idea was “Mod” but the visual outcomes fit the ska subculture much better, so this is my “Rudeboi” photoshoot.

The locations I used were Quadrophenia Alley (for the Mod idea) and underneath Brighton Pier.

All of the images can be found through this link: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipMs9OGLhIT9x_-_PIJk7Y2cPBYVsRpVcCymRj26TuXAHQaHtdA8VQLBIaxsNYyA0w?key=Mjd0WTdGN21LTFpLdWJXa25pRmMwYzN3REdtTjR3

I will include some of my favourite shots below:

From the 600 shots, I edited down and chose the right ones to develop in photoshop; I experimented with all the different tools, my favourites being posterize, threshold and gradient.

HIPPIE PHOTOSHOOT

To develop my visual research, I grouped together 4 of my friends and styled them to do a photoshoot inspired by the Hippie movement of the 1960’s and 70’s.

I hired a camera from the photographic department and took a total of 500 images on the day, I will include some of my favourites below.

This is the link to a google doc with all the images: https://photos.app.goo.gl/fp2UrL8xmc95LcHRA

       

              

I then edited the pictures in photoshop, experimenting with graphic and realistic styles. Below are some examples.

Mood Boards

I have started to compile images and create mood-boards to stimulate ideas; I experimented with the editing tools on photoshop to make my collages more interesting and to test for when I edit my own photographs.

Mods Vs Rockers

Hippie’s

British Subcultures of the 1960s and 70s

In my self-directed project I will be exploring the British subcultures of the 1960s and 70s; I will be analysing the relationship between music, fashion/ style, political purpose and shared beliefs within each group, and how they define the times they existed in.

-Mods Vs Rockers

-Rudeboys and Skinheads

-Hippies hated by the punks. “Love and Peace” vs “Hate and War”.
