My project is all based on fashion and portrait photography. I enjoy taking photographs and
experimenting with people to see what can be achieved. My model will be over the age of 18
to allow me to create disturbance and vulgar imagery. The model I have decided upon is
medium build with bright blonde hair and fair skin. The hair being light gives the photographs
more depth in showing the angelic and pure emotion that I need to show at first incites. I
plan to shoot my photographs in the open nature with a clear sky as the backdrop.Balloons
will be used as props and pastel coloured clothing and make-up will be worn by the model.
She will also be wearing a ‘skater skirt’ in some of the images so I can use my skills on the
camera to capture the movement of it swirling around.
I am using this task to produce photographs that discover and explore the differences
between the emotions you look on the outside between the emotions the person is feeling on
the inside, as well introducing the fashion side to it. I will be using various different
techniques such as movement photography, out of focus and double/multiple exposures. My
experiments and research into these techniques have given me the skills and experience to
follow through and produce my own pieces of work.
In one of the pieces, my model will be holding the string of a balloon or balloons. This
balloon will include a double exposure image over the top to show the unhappy emotions
inside of the subject. The balloon will be in a grayscale colour where the rest of the subject
will be in bright colour of vice versa.
In another of the pieces the model will be twirling round so the skirt is moving. I will change
the settings on the camera so the shutter speed is slower to capture the movement. I can
also use the action of the model moving and dancing around to use the double/multiple
exposure technique to create a really aerie and daunting look.
The out of focus technique will be used to capture the model holding the balloon with the
foreground been in focus and the subject been out of focus. I have decided upon this
because I think it will not only express the discovery of emotions but it also shows the
creativity and uniqueness of how unnerving the overall images will be.
Overall the techniques consist of movement, out of focus and double exposure. I have
decided to use these methods because during my research I experimented with them which
I enjoyed doing. The creativity that can be created is spectacular and I wish to preform to a
