Outcome 1 – Development of written proposal
8/03/15 – proposal copy in outcome 1
My proposal will now be focusing on…
the issues which express the idealisation of women within media photography
My aim is to create a series of magazine images which represent the real women in their real representation.
I will do this by creating parody images of the current magazines standards. Re-creating poses, positions, expressions ect… within a studio set up. I will be photographing real people and capturing their truthful beauty by making them wear their own clothes and do their own hair and make-up. This will allow for the images to present the true beauty behind each person without any re-touching or false representation to mislead the viewers. The images will be familiar to magazine audiences as they will recognise the style of the photographs however the audience will be able to relate to them more as the subject matter is more realistic and achievable.
Therefore my current test shoots are now unusable. They were not capturing my photographic vision in relation to the older proposal ideas. Now i have a clear idea of what it is i want to photograph and how i am going to do it i will be focusing my planning and research within the new proposal ideas.
I will be arranging for the models/subjects i have used in past test shoots to be photographed in the studio in order to create my photographic vision to portray the issues within fashion photography.
