Group Project...

After choosing our groups for the class assignment, it is made up of two photographers and two stylists. We discussed ideas we all liked and found common ground within everyones blog and the styles of work we were all inspired by. We came up with the concept of a fairytale, cinematic shoot, which would take place in the forest. The location we plan to shoot is in fairyglen woods in Wigan, Helen and Emma have booked out the lighting and photography equipment and we plan to set it up in fairyglen to help maximise thier shots! We choose to go for a very girly feminine look for our shoot, using floral garments with a vintage feel, also considering luxurious fabrics such as silks and chiffon which give that draping glamourous femininity. To give the shoot a bit of an edge we are going to style the model with lace up ankle boots for a grunge feel, we also have a black fur coat which she mite wear in a few shots. Jewellery such as pearls will be used to accessorize and flowers may be used as props for the model.

I researched into previous shots which have taken a similar concept to ours to see what kind of final images they came up with. I came across this article in which celebrities have dressed up and been styled to look like fairytale characters. Dakota Fanning as Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, kiera Knightly as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, Drew Barrymore as Belle from Beauty and The Beast, Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Gisele Bundchen as Wendy from Peter Pan.
