Week 4 – Hermès Project – Belinda Lee

I feel as though my shoot and film went really well and that I had organised it so that everything went smoothly on the day, especially when it came to showing the model call sheets and mood boards so she knew what to expect as soon as she got to the location, so we were able to just get started straight away. My model didn’t feel very comfortable in front of the camera so I feel like if I were to have had a professional model then my photos would have been a lot stronger, unfortunately no modelling agencies got back to me but considering my model didn’t feel that comfortable, I felt that my images still came out nice and how I envisioned them. I have edited my images and film to look as though they had been taken on a film camera rather than a digital because when placing my images next to my polaroids, the digitals didn’t look as though they belonged there. I felt it was necessary to edit the film in the same way as I edited my pictures so that everything would flow, especially as I wanted everything to look quite vintage. I also didn’t want to retouch the images too much just like you wouldn’t be able to if it were to just come straight out of a polaroid camera. I enjoyed using a location and relying on natural light rather than always sticking to studio, I think that location was the best option for my idea to really get the old vintage and elegance theme across, plus it tested me on my organisational skills and how well I can work independently. Although in future I think I should organise a team of stylists and an assist, which would make things easier for me. Before my shoot I said that I wanted soft facial expressions and minimal body movement to show that less is more, plus I didn’t want the posing to distract attention from the scarf, however whilst I was editing I actually thought that I should have added a little bit of movements just to show the scarf as a moving image, rather than just being placed on the body as an object. Overall I feel like I managed to promote the scarf in different ways and was able to show how to pair it with different outfits. I felt that the modernised old 2000’s style clothing fit with the location and theme I was going for which was my biggest worry when wanting to change my original idea and contrast the two, but I do feel like it worked out in the end, especially once I had finished editing. screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-32-07 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-32-49 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-33-14 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-33-42 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-34-10 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-34-32 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-35-00 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-35-26 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-37-53 screen-shot-2017-10-11-at-17-35-58
