I first of all set up this arrangement, I wanted to take the photo here to get some wood grain showing through from the table underneath the lace. I obviously needed a bigger backdrop for this arrangement, but this was not achievable without people holding it up. The location of the photo is not really ideal either because of the window behind, I knew this location probably wouldn’t work very well before I set it up, but it was mainly to get a gist of how I wanted things to look.
I then moved the arrangement to in front of a sofa-I rested the objects on the floor and used the sofa to hold up the back drop. As you can see, I decided not to use the lace, this is because I felt it clashed too much with the scarf and the bright fruit. I much prefer this image below to the one above, but I have edited the one below!
I really like the deep shadows within the folds of the fabrics, however I don’t like the creases in the sheet, which I can try and sort out on Photoshop. I also think that looking at the editing, I haven’t made the scarf stand out enough and it blends into the sheet, which is not good as it is meant to be the ‘star of the show’.
There was a group critique at University today and this is what was said about the above image:
– Make the scarf stand out more, it blends in too much.
– Try and get rid of the creases in the backdrop.
– Can tell there’s a sofa behind it.
-What context will this be seen in?
As an answer to the ‘what context will this be seen in?’: It will be seen in a high-end fashion magazine such as Harpers Bazaar, it looks quite luxury and it is still a fashion image so I feel it would suit this context well.
I was going to try and edit these things out to rectify them, but while still at University, I was told we were allowed to use the scarves again from the 24th – 29th November, so I am going to re-shoot again then before I do any more editing.
