The aim of this task was to explore conceptualised portraits based on the narrative of Little Red Riding Hood by using flash within the studio in order to to capture expressions of the model to create a series of images which convey a story.
I feel confident using flash within the studio and have found that the different lighting styles used have helped portray the different emotions i was aiming to capture. However i did struggle with the white balance of the images due to my camera settings. I now know to make sure to either use costume white balance if using J.PEG and to set the white balance in Photoshop if shooting in RAW as the overall appearance of my images has been ruined.
Overall i have fulfilled the aims of my task, i have managed to capture expressions of my model in order to create a starting point to a series of images. I am happy with the images i am able to use and believe they convey a story basis of a frightened, cautious and scared character, these images present the middle and the end of the story i am trying to convey; becoming aware, cautious, scared, doom. I have also slightly altered the levels of the images in post-production.
