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.
