What are your Ideas?
My idea is to work with different businesses in the local fashion industry to produce a lookbook for a local boutique.
I am planning to contact model agency and try to get 2-5 models and I will contact some local boutiques in person and via facebook email to acquire clothing for the shoots.
I’m planning on shooting on location and in studio, on location will be the fashion shoot and the studio part will be product shots of the clothing and accessories.
For the book I plan to have the fashion shot with the model on one page and the studio product shots on the other.
How do you propose to explore your idea that may be the kind of subject matter , location or lighting.
To narrow down the style of clothing, location, lighting and model I will research photographer's work that i’m interested in but allot of it will depend on what will be available to me.
The style of fashion will be winter spring casual and boho looks.
Lighting will be natural light but might use a reflector or fill flash if needed for the location work.
The studio shots will be done with white background and using studio lighting.
The location for the shoot will be either on the beach or wollongong botanical gardens.
What creative and technical research will you carry out.
What medium do you think you might use?
I will be using full frame dslr with 85mm f1.4 lens for the fashion shoot.
I will be printing in either a A5 magazine style book or a concertina booklet
What techniques will you explore analogue/digital/ post and pre production
I will only be shooting in digital and I will look at different retouchihng techniques for fashion photography and try different filters and effects eg flair and colour tinting, until i find one that works and looks consistent for the series of images
How you might solve the technical and creative problems that will come up. Which might include decisions about colour/black/white, size, output,format,(series of single images, series of pairs, series of sequences et c
I will refer back to my research, and examples of lookbooks and ask the teacher and other students and professional photographers in the industry for advice.
