Week 3 – Hermès Project – Belinda Lee

October 12, 2017by blee2Fashion: Hermes - Olivia Pomp (17/18)News

Week 3 was the week of my shoot, I had now finalised a model, location and clothes. I thought it would be a good idea to make a call sheet to send over to my model just to make everything clear so that she would know what to expect on the day and would know about times and location. I had also made a mood board to take on the day of the shoot which shows the type of poses I would want the model to do, which I felt would make things flow easier on the day for the both of us, which it did. I had decided to use one female model to fit the one scarf I have and with the location I have. I felt only one model would look better rather than two as i didn’t want it to look over the top or crowded, also the girl I chose really suited the look I was going for. Luckily the model lives around my area so she was more than willing to do it, however she was never free for us to do a test shoot so on the day I had to take quick snaps just to see if the scarf would suit in the styles I hoped it would with the outfits I wanted. I had decided to use a canon 5D because I wanted a nice crisp image. I had taken my polaroid camera to take pictures for myself not the project, but once I took them I instantly loved how they came out and immediately regretted picking a digital camera. I felt that the polaroids gave my images a nice vintage and soft feel to the pictures so thought that when it comes to editing I could possibly edit the pictures I had taken on the canon 5d to make them look as though they were taken on a film camera rather than digital, especially as I had now decided to include the polaroids I had taken into my editorial. I felt that pictures that looked like they were taken on film rather than digital would look nicer paired with the polaroids. Regarding clothing, I had taken inspiration from the early 2000’s style but looked at how it has been modernised with fashion now. I decided to go for flared trousers, crop tops, chunky vintage heels, big statement earrings and mini dresses. I thought that using this contrast and mixing old vintage styling that had been modernised, with elegant vintage buildings would be interesting and personally I thought the images came out quite nice, nothing really looked out of place. I had taken some inspiration from ‘Fine Heritage’ Marie Claire 2017 when it came to the colour of the images, I really liked the way it looked very vintage like a film camera but the colours looked edited as if it were to make it look quite tinted, soft and slightly grained. I am thinking of using that as a reference for when I start to edit my film and images. I also took some inspiration from Bella Hadid by Robbie Fimmano for vogue Australia, April 2015 when it came to posing a I felt like the way she placed herself was very relaxed and almost effortless which is what I liked and wanted to incorporate into my work. screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-21-55-36 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-16-22-04screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-16-28-57screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-21-17-08screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-16-39-42
