‘The setting in Wonderland is a strange and crazy world that is entered by dropping into a rabbit hole
and ends up in a woods/fields which turns out to be inhabited by strange creatures and weird things
Settings/ locations are important, it will show the viewers that the
photographs are Alice in Wonderland because in the film they use the
same type of locations ‘weird/woods’.
I am going to take some of my photographs in a lake/woods in
Walkden or in Worlsey woods. Once I have set up all the props and
got the characters/ models into place it will look like Alice in
Wonderland once the photographs have been taken and edited. I am
going to use a variety of different parts of the woos. These images
are all photographs of the woods and which parts I think may look
good for the setting of my photographs.
The characters are important in Alice in Wonderland photography because just showing the scene wouldn’t
make the photographs as eye catching and the setting might not be obvious on what the photographs are
meant to be of.
There is a variety of different characters in Alice in Wonderland.
I have chosen the characters which I want to use in my photographs.
These character are-
’The main character, she falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar,
Queen of Hearts-
‘She is a foul-tempered monarch, that Carroll himself pictured as "a blind fury", and who is quick to decree
death sentences at the slightest offense. Her most famous line, one which she repeats often, is "Off with
their heads!“ ‘
‘He is often referred to as the Mad Hatter. The phrase "mad as a hatter referred to as "both mad" first
appearing in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, in the seventh chapter titled "A Mad Tea-Party".’
King of Hearts-
‘He is the king consort of the Queen of Hearts. The only moderate part of the Wonderland government,
he’s a quiet character.’
Card Soldiers –
‘The Queen and king of hearts soldiers’
Costumes are important because they show the characters in the
photographs. They give each specific character a different look, I’m going to
try my best to make the characters look like the characters in ‘Alice and
Wonderland.’ I am going to use face paints/ body paints on my models
which may help my characters look more like what they’re suppose to be for
The Caterpillar- The photograph I have found on the internet is a girl body
painted slightly blue an is wrapped in a blue sheet, even though it isn’t the
caterpillar costume it’s obvious what it is.
Alice- Light Blue Dress.
King Of Hearts- Throne & Crown.
Queen Of Hearts- Black, white and Red dress with hearts on.
Mad Hatter- Weird/old clothing, top hat, orange afro wig.
Card Soldiers- Heart cards costume.
Props are important in photography because it makes the photographs a lot more
interesting and eye catching. They can also show the viewer what the photographs are
aimed on for example- A photograph of cards and the Alice and Wonderland clock would
make the photographs more noticeable.
The props are important in Alice in Wonderland, especially in the ‘Tea Party’ scene. The tea
party needs a lot of props- Table, Chairs, Tea cup set (cups, saucers, tea pot, etc..), table
cloth, picnic basket and etc…
Also some of the characters use some props in their costumes for example-
The mad hatter uses a walking stick.
King and Queens Crowns.
Caterpillar holding a hookah.
Some props I am going to use are cards, tea cup set, table set, cake, tea, books, Clock,
Walking stick, crowns.
Camera Angles/ Techniques:
Angles are important in photography, they’re used to make the photographs more
interesting and eye catching for the audience. They all show different things for example
close ups/ extreme close ups can show emotion of a certain scene on their face. For
example: The Queen of Hearts gets angry easily and I am planning on taking a close up of
the face she pulls when she’s shouting at Alice or when she catches someone she wants to
Some angles I am going to use are:
High Angle: I am going to use this angle when Alice is falling/ fell down the rabbit hole and
is on the floor with cards scattered around her.
Low Angle: I am going to use this angle when Alice is looking down the rabbit hole to show
it’s obvious what she is doing in the photograph.
Close-Up: I am going to use this angle to show different characters emotions.
Some photography techniques I am going to use will be framing, rule of thirds, leading lines,
balancing elements, patterns & symmetry and depth of field. These are important in
photography they make the photographs eye catching and not just simple. Some
photographs look boring when taken from straight ahead.
