Specialist Technique and Process 3 – Proposal


Proposal Update: 07/12/15


Looking over my last proposal draft and evaluating my  current test shoots I can conclude that my testing and my idea are not working.

I have become distant from my latest proposal plan and am now not 100% sure what my subject is, how it relates to my issues and what I am photographing any more even though I have tested a few different directions.

Therefore I have decided to put my project on hold and re-look at it in a different light. I have gone back over all my feedback sheets from peers/tutor and have decided to focus upon the style I want to photograph my work in then work on the subject matter and my issues.

In order to do this I have written out a list that shows what kind of photographer I want to be and what my interests are…

(within studio and on location)

Beauty – Hair/Make-up


Alliance between fashion and people
Representation of people
Media representation


Fashion photography is my main interest. I would like to be working within a studio which focuses on fashion portraits both on location and within the studio itself. I would like to work with both models and products focusing on clothing and beauty shots.

Focusing on this goal I have decided to begin my next testing idea for my proposal should be based on photographing within a Fashion photography style. In order to do this I need to begin researching fashion photographers – Photographers who’s work inspires me and stands out – then I need to examine their work and determine what it is about their work I like and how I can represent that in my work.

I am going to begin looking at lighting techniques used by photographers. I will then test different lighting techniques upon location and within the studio. Once I have achieved the lighting style I am happy with I will begin examining what it is I am trying to achieve with this series of work. For example what it is I want the audience to consider when they look at the work. Once I have discovered what this is I will be able to focus on the visual aspects of the images. The visual aids I photograph will allow the viewer to respond to it as a series of images. In order to do this my subject matter will have a strong correlation with the issues I am trying to represent.
