Advanced Studio Practice 2A – Test shoot 6

The aim of this shoot was to re-create previous test shots that are aesthetically and technically correct for potential portfolio use age. This will include high fashion make-up shots with a unique twist from me creating a series that represent a mystical/magical essence to beauty/make-up/colour/nature.

shoot will take place on 16/12/14

The aims of this shoot were met, however the images were successful and unsuccessful. I managed to re-create my previous shoots with the same styles/design as well as adding extra props such as a backdrop. However the look of my model within the shoot was vastly different from my model before and these were ongoing factors which have made me unsure about this shoot.

I am happy with the images i have created and how my model looks however each model has different styles/ways of working and all look different therefore i have had to cancel my idea of re-creating previous shots and working with my model and how she looked and felt comfortable. I also had to use a different colour product due to hair and skin colour as this flattered this model more.

The images without the backdrop are strong, i have managed to re-create the aesthetics i wanted. I have managed to add more props in to this shoot, however i have found that it is over complicating the scene. My aim was to capture a high fashion mystical appearance however adding the wings and backdrop had transformed the scenes completely in to a fairy wonderland. This was not what i wanted, i wanted the appearance of a fairy not an actual fairy therefore within my next shoot i will only be using make-up and ears to create my representation and not wings and a backdrop.
