In the second week I decided to create a test shoot with my styling. I did this so I could play with the clothes and see what worked well with each other. It also gave me a chance to play with the scarf, and decided how I would use it in my final shoot. I found it hard to fold the scarf in different ways. As it was so silky it came lose easily, and having never really worn a scarf, I didn’t know how to use it at all. I feel it definitely helped by having this shoot, and made me more confident for my actual shoot. I also feel the styling came together a lot better in this shoot. Although I had pictured it in my head, I still wasn’t sure if it worked, but physically photographing it with the scarf helped a lot. At first I felt I didn’t have enough clothes to work with, however I feel having the scarf used in so many ways helped this problem and created new and more interesting looks. When it came to lighting I kept it very simple. I had two lights on the background to make the background pop, and then one at the front to light the model. I used a soft box on the model to give a softer lighting on her skin. I chose to use a green background as I felt it worked well with the scarf, and represents the woodland/ field area I would be shooting in, on the final shoot. In some images I feel it could of been a slightly paler green, however it still achieved what I wanted and fit with the shoot. Overall I really like this shoot, I feel the styling worked well and is very on brand. I also like playing with the scarf and feel it works well as a top. I also like it around the neck in the various ways. It defiantly worked with the big trousers, and created that clean, high end look. I also think its works well with the coat. The coat was made by a atelier student at UCA. I feel it worked with the scarf as they are both very unique and create unique shapes and looks.
