Practise Shoot; Experimenting:

This shoot was primarily about practising what I want to do for the actual shoot. For this shoot I wanted to recreate the photograph done by David Bailey of Michael Caine, I wanted to do this as I feel like it is quite simple but shows a lot of different hidden meanings.

This is the contact sheet from the practise shoot. I asked for some feedback about the shoot and I have been given some constructive criticism into how I can improve the shoot.

  • 24 focal length – this will give me a wide-angle
  • Don’t let the cigarette droop
  • Try crop
  • Use one light – 45 degrees to the left side – Using a dish or a soft-box
  • More serious look
  • Intense stare

I am going to edit photo 4778 to see the outcome and to see what I can improve on for my next shoot.
