Experimenting camouflage.

In preparation for doing my own Holger Trulzsch camouflage photograph I practised blending an object in with a background in the hope that this would help me when it came to doing my own photograph. I used face paints to try to camouflage my hand into a white and black background like Holger Trulzsch did when blending people into their surroundings.

After finding a picture of a Veruschka camouflaged by Holger Trulzsch i became extremely inspired to try my own full body picture but still linking the picture in with my project. I liked the images of Verushka because they are unique and original. I would like to relate Holger Trulzsch’s photographs into my work by using his idea of painting the whole body instead of just the face. Over the past few days i have made a plan of what i’m going to do including full body shots of my model with colour paint on them relating to a culture.

Experimenting with photoshop.

In photoshop i tried making my photographs even more unique by merging two of my pictures together. I like this photograph because it looks realistic when i have actually merged a 5 year olds eyes with a 17 year old eyes but if you hadent looked at my other photographs you wouldnt know that they have been photoshopped together.

Hair.

As well  as doing the make-up for my photo shoots i also felt it was necessary to style the persons hair to match the photograph. I did this because like Rankin and Stephen Eastwoods photographs they don’t just focus on the person and make-up in the photograph its also about the backdrop, hair, positioning and angle of the photograph. Here is an example of one way i styles my models hair for my photograph.

Colours in Culture.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Over the past few weeks i have been taking photographs of people with make-up covering their faces and hands. The make-up in every individual photograph represents a colour that means something in a culture. My project i have decided to take further in Photography is using make-up to represent what the colours mean in different cultures. I liked this idea because its different and i feel i can use both of make-up and Photoshop to make my pictures unique and show what i am capable of. I thought of ideas for what to do by using a website where i found what each colour meant in different cultures. For example for my picture of Jasmin Raynsford with black facepaint on her face i used the make-up on her face to represent evil as Thailand believe that the colour black represents evil. I also used Jasmins facial expression to confirm this as she looks very stern.

Rankin.

I also looked at Rankins photography because i felt his photographs also related to my work really well. Rankin is a photographer who bases his work around fashion and make-up.I found with Rankins work he takes very simple pictures of models faces and makes them more effective using poses and make-up. I really like his work because its unique and stands out which is what i want my work to be like too. Rankin inspired me to not just use make-up to illustrate what different colours mean in cultures but using poses as well. My favorite photograph of Rankins is the two photos of the same model close up posing with different coloured powdered makeup on her face. I like this picture because of the poses the model is making and the compesition. Most of Rankins photos are focused on colour, some times contrasting, which is the same as my project.
