My Fashion Shoot!

For my Digital Photography Assignment, I had to create my own fashion shoot. I chose my friend Aimee O'Connell as my selected model and used her clothes. It was a great experience to do as I have learnt so many different camera techniques throughout the year and this helped me to take all these photos in the way that I did. Secondly, I have Image Processing once a week and this class helped me to edit my photo's by lightening the photos in certain areas and making certain areas of the shoot stand out more compared to other areas. I enjoyed the experience and if I had the chance later in life, I'd definitely love to be involved in fashion shoots, photography, magazines, hair & make-up.
I chose Aimee a wine coloured blazer along with a light denim shirt and cream wool jumper. Also to go with this look was legging's and dark red Doc Martins. She wore two simple pearl bracelets along with a rose and gold mirror pendant necklace. I wanted to create 'The Student Look' which is quirky and does stand out. I also loved Aimee's glasses which were by Gok Wan so I decided to keep them for the shoot as I always think glasses refers to reading and studying which then relates to students.
I chose Limerick's People Park as it has many different areas to take photo's. This time of year, Spring, has many new animals and plants around so it was great to mix nature into this shoot. My favourite place of all to shoot the photo's in the park was by the tree's. My first photo below was taken here and there was many more taken here. I had great fun directing the shoot and telling Aimee how to stand or pose. Aimee was really easy to work with and remained calm all through when being instructed how to pose.
