From both of the shoots that will be taking place on the dates below we
want to achieve a crisp and sharp image that will help our represent our
product as being very up beat and intense. After both photoshoots we
would like to have at least 25 images that we can review and select our
favourite.
All Photographs from Shoot
Selection Process
The following 4 photographs below were the most successful
from mine and Matthews shoot. We will now analyse each of
these 4 photographs and come to the final conclusion of what
we want for each piece.
Photograph 1
Advantages
The lighting of the photograph casts a good shadow
over the models eyes.
Where the model is standing allows for other
elements to be placed in the photograph which
makes this ideal for an album cover or back.
Disadvantages
The facial expressions on the models face make
him look fairly sad, it is mainly the positioning and
look of the lips that may give off this impression, this
is not what we want as it would make the album
look fairly grunge instead of hardcore and up beat.
The expressive lighting coming from the right side
of the photograph means the side of the models
jacket has been lit up, giving a warm feel to the
photograph.
Will not be used.
Photograph 2
Advantages
The close up makes the image seem much more in
the audience faces, adding to the tense feel of the
album.
The facial expressions were better in this
photograph also adding to the tension.
This image would be good for an album front cover
as it will attract the audiences attention.
Disadvantages
The lighting on the models face is fairly over
exposed, taking away from the feel of the
photograph.
We wanted a more even shadow but in this image
there are spots of light on one side of the models
face where as on the other side there is not.
Will not be used.
Photograph 3
Advantages
The close up makes the image seem much more in
the audience faces, adding to the tense feel of the
album like the previous photograph.
The model is looking directly into the camera
making the image seem much more personal to its
audience.
The shadow on the models face is near enough
identical on both sides making this image a strong
contender in the selection process.
The composition of the photograph is good as the
model is positioned in the centre of the page, this is
a good image for an album front cover.
Disadvantages
The facial expression is slightly different to how we
wanted it but it could work.
Will be used for Album Cover.
Photograph 4
Advantages
The composition of this photograph is well done as
the left side is completely covered by the model,
this makes good use of the rule of thirds as it adds
tension to the image making it seem like something
else could come into the shot.
The facial expression is perfect and gives the model
an evil and mysterious look, attracting people
towards the image.
The shadows on the models face are perfect and
are fairly symmetrical meaning the eyes will be
easily darkened.
Disadvantages
N/A
Will be used for Album Back and Poster.
