Shooting Fashion Photography again with Harriet McHugh, and a different model, Jess.
The final shoot for my Final Major Photography looking at Fashion Photography. The model was wearing designs made by Harriet McHugh.
Exploring Fashion Photography for my Final Major Project, these are a few of my favourites from the first three shoots with Ellie, Diana and Zoe. Each shoot was different, and each model offered a different look, but I am extremely happy with each image.
Exploring Fashion Photography for my Final Major Project. This shoot with Laura lasted all of twenty minutes because of the wind and cold and because managed to get everything I needed because Laura was so photogenic. I found directing her easy, and the combination of the dress, her hair and the rock, combined more perfectly than I planned.
Influence: Lara Jade
For my Final Major Project I knew I wanted to explore fashion photography. Luckily, earlier in the year I had bought a book called “Fashion Photography 101,” written by the talented Lara Jade. At the time I bought the book I was unfamiliar with Lara’s work, but now, I can say she is a photographer who inspires me, influences me, and who I completely admire.
The brief for this project was to take one image from the exhibition at college and create a project around it. I chose a low key portrait by photographer Alex Telfer. The portrait was of a man, and it brought about an unexpected emotion in me. I therefore chose to do portraits in a similar style of the three most important people in my own life. These images have become even more important to me since I took them, as irrevocable changes have befallen each of these important people.
Exploring a scanner as a means of capturing images. I had alot of fun creating these images and I particularly like the softness the further you are away from the plate. I loved the texture, and patterns of the hair. This is a little series I’d love to go back to and explore further.
"An Offering for Dead Flowers"
A composite piece taken in the woods near my home. Its a more surreal conceptual piece than other images I’ve taken, but I’m extremely happy with the image.
A random selection of images taken for my photographic diary project. This personal project was at times a chore, but persevering with it over the year has been so rewarding in having a visual reference of my year.
Similar to an earlier project, exploring multiple aspects of the self in one image. The two images are in the exact same place, the camera is just repositioned into a different direction of the light. I really like the constast of the two images, although they are inherently similar.
Amble, Northumberland. One of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever witnessed. For this image I used a tripod and graduated ND filters to enhance the performance of my Pentax K20D and 16-45mm lens.
When I headed down to the beach with sparklers and a camera on a tripod. I adore photos that can only be seen because of the photographic medium. Not to mention how fun light painting is.
Influence: David Talley
I stumbled upon David Talley around the same time I fell in love with the works of Lissy Elle and Kyle Thompson. Their works have influenced me and encouraged me to improve my skills in photoshop as well as my concepts.
Talley’s series of images in which explore multiple versions of himself particularly influence me, and I would love to experiment further with multiple versions of the self in one image. This of course, subject to technical understanding, but I think the effect will be interesting.
As a interest of teaching myself a “how to,” I set about exploring levitation photography. I only set myself a couple of days to learn and execute this task, so most of the images are set in domestic settings, which I think works particularly well.
