Planning front cover photoshoot

  1. 1. Planning- Front Cover Photo- shootTHESE PHOTOSHOOTS FOR FRONT COVER/ DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD/ ADVERT/ CONTENT PAGE…. WAS ALL TAKEN ON THE SAME DAY. THEREFORE, SOME SET UP PICTURES WILL BE THE SAME! By Chantal Richardson
  2. 2. Planning for Front cover ImageAgency Name VIVANTModel Louisa Tooth and Hannah SewellCamera height/angle/distance Eye-level Medium Shot/ Medium long ShotLocation Studio (in house)Lighting/Macro/Flash I will hang the Sheet on a window, for the light to go through the sheet to reflect on the camera. If inside lighting is not good and the task above does not work, then I will take the picture outside in the natural light, then edit the models into a different backgroundMise-en-scene (incl. props, costume) Props- There will be a guitar in the image, to show that this is about music Costume- They would be wearing teenage costumes, and colours would be fun spring colours, nothing vibrant, as well as being very feminineBackground Background- this will be a light baby blue, or baby pink silk, backdrop, and I will use it for the floor too, if I have to change the positioning of the camera to, for example a long shot.
  3. 3. Continued….Attempted connotation (what you’re trying to show through the costume, I’m trying to demonstrate the fun, youth, and freedom of being a teenagermodels, etc….)Planned denotation (what you see when you look at the front cover) The readers would be seeing two musicians as friends, in a happy mood, because they are sharing their music to the readers (they are looking at the reader)Contingency (in case of model absence/weather) If the lighting inside studio is not correct with theme of spring, then I will have to use natural light outside, and Photoshop the models into a separate background I would have created on PhotoshopAlternate angle I would use long shot, to show the whole costume, still at an eye-level angle, because then I will be able to do more with the models movements, for example jumping in the air with the guitarThinking points: I will be using the rule of thirds, but instead the model will be in the middle, whilst the hybrids and cover lines will be on the left andright side of the rule of thirdsComments:
  4. 4. • Set Up for Photo-shoot FOR…. • FRONT COVER PHOTOS • DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD PHOTOS • ADVERT PHOTOS • CONTENT PAGE PHOTOS
  5. 5. • Instead of hanging the sheet on top of a window, I hung in between the doors of the cupboard. This is because you wouldn’t be able to see the sellotape, which would be obvious and harder to edit if I had the sheet on the window.• I then added another sheet on the floor, because this would create a studio affect, as studios are usually in a cube shape, to make the pictures look professional• There was also a celling window above me when I was taking the pictures, which allowed natural light to reflect on the sheet
  6. 6. Taking Picture & Make-up• I am in the blue jumper
  7. 7. Photography Explanations• Aperture- will be at ƒ/11, because there will be lots of natural light on the musicians, therefore the iris doesn’t need to be large• Shutter Speed- will be handheld at 160, because the musicians will be in still positions, therefore, the shutter doesn’t need to be fast to capture the image• ISO- will be low at 200, because there is lots of natural light, therefore the sensitivity must be lower to avoid noise in the picture
  8. 8. Decision on Front Cover Image 10% 10% 30% 50%• These are the 4 images I have short listed, which I judged on facial expressions, how professional they looked, and if they showed the correct themes e.g. fun, girly and star quality• I then asked 20 teenage girls which picture showed these themes: fun, girly and star quality, where most of them chose the 4th image on the right, with a percentage of 50%. Therefore this is the image I will be using for my front cover.• The 4th image seems to also be the best, because not only does it appeal to my target audience, but also, the picture has space on the sides and above for writing
  9. 9. Basic Photoshop tools for editing• Firstly, I will use brightness, contrasting, and sharpening, because there is a lot of shadows that don’t look professional• I will then change the background to make everything white, but still have the texture of the sheet. So I will use the quick selection button, then press Ctrl + U and change the colour
