Since deciding over the last couple of weeks, the direction Id like my portfolio to go down, I’ve been creating mood boards on Pinterest. Not only from Pinterest images but also from Images and articles/ videos which I have found on the internet.
My main board for this is Pinterest Board – Couples Shoot where you can see the hair, makeup, posing and lighting ideas which I really want to incorporate into this shoot.
Whilst looking at these images I have also carried out some online retail therapy so that I can dress my models appropriately; well Madison anyway. Josh I would like clothed as little as possible within the realms of good taste!
I’ve purchased 5 dresses which can be seen below; mostly ‘little black dresses’ but also an amazing red body-con dress. On the day I will begin with either the ‘top middle’ or ‘bottom left’ dress however I also want my female model in underwear and possibly to wear Josh’s shirt. After I have completed those shots, If I have time I will then change Madison into the red dress.
One of the ideas I have had is to have a fan blowing in a few of the images to give movement to the hair and possibly clothing too. I am also going to bring with me a white sheet and also a cushion for the models to rest their heads on for some of the lying down shots.
I want my models to have seen the posing ideas before hand but I don’t want the shoot to be too structured and I want the models to have a good time with each other and to get lots of candid shots which could possibly be linked together into a show-reel for the shoot. I’ll discuss this my tutors when I get back to see if this is feasible.
