Advanced Studio Practice 2A – Test shoot 7

The aim of this shoot is to continue capturing previous test shots that are aesthetically and technically correct for potential portfolio use age by pushing myself further and developing myself as a photographer by using models, make-up artists and a studio.  This allows me to explore my commercial opportunities as a photographer and gives me experience of working in a professional practice. I want these images to explore all the aspects of my past test shots and capture every aspect i am trying to portray. I want these images to be strong/powerful and successful. This will mean the images will represent my high fashion mystical appearance.

This was my most successful shoot. I have a managed to achieve and develop all my aims from throughout this project and create a series of final images of which i am happy with. I believe these are my strongest images which i have created so far. They have all the elements of which i have wanted to capture (beauty/make-up/nature/mystical/high fashion).

I have chosen these 5 images of the shoot as i find they work together as a series and could be used to advertise a brand. They are all of the same look however the posture of the model is different therefore the same product could be used within this advertising series with just different looks. The audience will identify with the look and connect the brand together but be happy to see different approaches and not the same image constantly.

I have left space within the images for advertising purposes such as text and logos.

From this project i have managed to develop as a photographer and battle my strengths and weaknesses. I feel much more confident as a photographer and enjoyed collaborating with models and make-up artists. The overall affect and different within the images from these collaborations are vastly stronger than my past shoots.
