Twenty Eight.

I Finally got a chance to develop my Film from New York :)

I ended up using my film camera just for general snap shots! However, we came across these group of guys walking down the street when they shouted.. 'Sexy mamma's' at us! We laughed and carried on walking and when I got half way down the street I just knew I had to go back and take a photo of them! I'm not really one, thats confident with street photography, but as they 'sort of' approached us I found it very easy and just laughed my way through it!

Twenty Seven.

Today Marco Santucci visited us and was by far one of the most interesting guest speakers that have visited. I have been familiar with the Santucci and co website for a while now and the works of Gemma Booth and Elaine constantine are very influential in my work.

Being a Art director of the Agency, Marco's talk was very helpful to my learning. His knowledge and experience within the industry and it mainly being fashion influenced was heavily favorable to my practice. I was unfamiliar with the process and ways in which and Agency would work, but with Marco's explanation I was able to gain a step by step insight into how you would go about getting involved with an Agency and the running of the business.

Twenty Six.

Twenty Five.

After the technical issues of my last shoot for this project, I had to re-shoot! I decided to make the whole thing much more simple! I used the same make up throughout the shoot as last time I felt it was to distracting from the idea and all the colours and clingfilm! I had a last minute panic trying to find a model, but in the end I found one that was more than suitable for the project and didn't mind being wrapped in clingfilm :)

These are my final out comes for my Gaia project... consisting of a double page spread and a front cover. I chose to use Pop magazine as my commercial genre as the loud and vibrant colours best fitted the context of the magazine. I am very pleased with the project and feel my outcomes portray the theory of Gaia in a simple context, emphasizing the elements of the earth, but all coming together to show the earth as one!

Twenty Three.

So today I planed to shoot my final images for my Gaia project. I had my model and make up artist all ready, the only thing that wasn't sorted was the lighting! The set up that I used on my test shoot, just wasn't working and it was all going horribly wrong! In the end I was just got so annoyed with the lighting that there was no point carrying on because it wasn't what I wanted!

However, even these images are really over exposed, i really liked the effect...

Today has been stressful, but sometimes thats just the way it goes! I've got the studio booked again for monday, so hopefully I can get the look I was going for like my test shoot!

I am really pleased with this project overall and the images that have come out of it! After alot of chasing round for clothes, many packages and deliveries and so much money spent, it seems that its all paid off! ... despite the post man thinking i'm some sex addict ;)

These images are the originals... i WILL get round to editing them very soon :)
