Sadly the week I was due to shoot in the studio at college, my model the night before decided she didn’t want to participate, and sadly I could not find anyone to fill in for me at such short notice.
I know things like this happen out in the real world, but you never think it is going to happen to you. This experience has just taught me that I should have back ups for anything that is time framed that I have going on. Lesson well learnt.
Though I have to admit that I was gutted about this since we are allocated a certain time to shoot in studio and I ended up missing it.
Props I shall be using, a minimal white dress, which wont be that hard to find, and luckily my new model has a red hooded-cape from last year at Halloween, so that is very handy. Since I will be shooting in a studio, I won’t get the natural breeze blowing the cape as seen in this poster. So I have been thinking about using either the fan that is situated in the college or maybe bringing in some hairdryers. I’ll bring the hairdryers just incase.
Make up: Well this doesn’t show much of the face, and the fact I want to show the subjects eyes makes me think of maybe whitening her face a little and darkening the area around her eyes. The subject I shall be using has very blue eyes, so the darkness of the make up will hopefully contrast against her eyes and make them stand out considerably.
The problem I now have is, where am I going to shoot the background to roughly match the film poster of my choice. How am I going or even what am I going to add in the background.
However the biggest problem/task is to find someone to model for me, as 99% of my friends aren’t willing to take up the challenge (Camera shy I think is the best term)
