For these images I wanted to create something really simple just so that I could concentrate on trying to sort the styling as it is something that I struggle with. I chose a simple off white backdrop and used just 2 lights to light the studio and had the model stand close to the background so that the model created 2 shadows on the backdrop which I thought looked really effective. I also chose to roll the backdrop up so that the floor used was just the floor of the studio, I did start shooting with the backdrop rolled all the way down but changed it after a few shots because I thought that the all white looked too plain for what I was trying to create. These 2 shots are some simple portraits that I took to show some different ways to style the headscarf look. For most of the styling I’m using a similar colour palette and minimal patterns so that the scarf stands out in the images. In the image on the left I styled the scarf just wrapped round the models head a few times leaving the top of the head exposed, I really liked this style with the simple blazer and trousers. These 2 images show the second look for my shoot. I have once again chosen to use the pink trousers, I think they are a really beautiful statement piece that work well as the centre piece of the styling. Here I have tied the scarf as a top underneath the shirt. I really love how the colours of these pieces look together, the block colours aren’t something that I would normally work with but I really like how they look all together.
This is a similar look to the previous one but using the scarf on the head. I think this style looks really interesting and I like how it leaves the chest bare. For the final shoot I might find some jewellery for the model to wear round her neck to create some more interest. This shows another way that the scarf can be worn as a top, I think it looks really nice with the pinks in the rest of the outfit. Overall I think this shoot went well, it allowed me to finalise my styling so I’m now confident that I will be able to execute it well on the final shoot. I also was apprehensive about the colours looking odd against the natural backdrop of camber sands, but now I have visualised it all on a model I’m confident that its going to look really nice on location.
