I have been having a look at the work of Horst P Horst. Some of his fashion pics have a surreal look about them which I really like.
If I could get the pictures to upload I would show them to you!
Have a look at his fashion pics on this link instead http://www.horstphorst.com/
Still on the lookout for models, I have been in touch with our local radio station, The Bee, to ask if they can help me in my quest to find new and unusual looking models.
The last shoot with a model unseen until the day of the shoot was a bit of a disaster, not so much a fresh and innocent look as pure page 3! Well I suppose I did say I wanted a blonde and blue eyed model, and that is what I got – and much, much more!
Now I have got my head round what it is I intend to do for my fmp and done a bit of research, it is really about ancient rituals that celebrate the passing of the seasons. Tsk….there was me thinking it was about fashion – it’s Lord of the Rings!
A quick trawl round google found some fascinting information about the easter bunny (German invention) and how christianity and paganism has got all mixed up together over the years (hope that doesn’t offend anyone!).
I have a whole weekend of shooting planned, the weather forecast isn’t being particularly kind to me so I have decided to take control of the situation and bring the outside in. Literally. I have some large branches cut from some dead trees and I am going to do a studio shoot with them this weekend. I have borrowed a lighting kit and huge softbox from college so it will be a weekend of experimentation.
Hello! Welcome to my blog!
I have finally joined in with the rest of the world and joined the 21st century. Never a big fan of technology I have decided in a new era of perestroika to embrace it wholeheartedly!!!
The purpose of this blog is to record my daily musings, trauma’s and shoots on the journey through my BA in photography Final Integrated Project.
I can honestly say I never thought the day would come when I would be creating a blog. My, how times have changed!
