Advanced Studio Practice 2B – Proposal – Test Shoot 1 – 3-5 images

Outcome 3 – record of substantial body of work


The aim of this task was to photograph 3-5 images which explore the issues of my proposal.These images are a starting point and are to show what my proposal is discussing and a potential visual outcome.

My model for today’s shoot lives in Beeston. After a quick discussion before the shoot i asked her to pick 3 different locations within Leeds city centre where she would liked to be photographed and also wear her favourite outfit.

This was a successful shoot. I have managed to communicate with a model and create some potential visual outcomes to discuss my issue of how fashion influences lifestyle.

Looking over the 5 selected images i have decided i want to continue this project based on an outdoor location brief. I will be working with this model again. We have arranged to have a deeper discussion about her lifestyle and her fashion influence based on questions i have written up. After discussion during the shoot i am now aware that she would like to be photographed down at Kirkstall Abbey which is a key importance within Leeds’s History; Kirkstall Abbey owned over 5000 sheep which meant the developing industry of wool making was inevitable as Leeds became one of the most famous wool making centres in the country.

For my future shoots i will be forming a relationship with my models and planning my shoots. I want every elements of the images to explore exactly what the models believe their lifestyle to be or how they would like it to be portrayed.

I will also be composing my images and model more closely. I want my model to look comfortable and in control, they are portraying their lifestyle therefore need to be expressing it to the audience making them want it. This will mean spending more time on each shot and feeling confident to do so even though people around will be watching.
