The 5 final images for the campaign...

Here are the 5 final images for the campaign with the kodak logo and also a slogan that I had been brainstorming for a while!

I decided to use the same model for each of the 5 shoots. This was done so that it went well with the slogan of 'YOUR STYLE, PRINTED IN STYLE' and also gives the viewer a range of different styles in the best quality that the epson printers can print at. So no matter the style...Kodak can print it.
After some research into the epson printers and talking to the marketing manager, I found that the epson printers are most known for the colours that it produces. All the colours are very sharp and vibrant and so through my shoots I wanted to explore this. This of course is the reason why I chose to the variety of coloured shoots; Pastel colours for the dolly, brightly blocked coloured look, deep coloured jewelled look, matallic look and then a natural, but also quite dark look.

The final inspirational images, people and my own interpreted shoot....

The next shoot that I did, was created to show pastels, another variety of colours. Here are some inspirational images used...
 First of all the person that caught my eye of inspiration was Zandra Rhodes, a well known designer that always has been known for her wild pink hair. Love the pale complexion with brightly coloured designs on top.
 The doll look has always been something that I would like to play with a re-create and so I thought this could be a great opportunity! Really like the lips in this one and removal of the eyebrows, drawing them up, higher on the face.
I loved the innocense of the black and white image in this one and also the weirdness of the image on the top left. It's fake but almost so real, exactly how children see their own dolly's!

My shoot.....

I was really pleased with the result of these images and feel that I have developed them so much.

Inspiration for a more colourful block look.... and then the final

 I wanted to create a look that was colourful, fresh and new. Block colours were a perfect solution for this and so this is what I used. When researching, I found some wonderful images that fit perfectly in to what I wanted to create.

I really loved these images. Not only do I love the design of it all but the poses in particular work really well.

So with these images I then went on to create my own with a slight twist...

I felt this shoot went well and I loved that we were able to create movement within the picture to give it slightly more of a story behind it. To do this we used a large fan. I do feel that if I re-did the images I would have been more extravagant with the poses. However I do like the images that were produced.
To create the stars on the face I use stickers first and painted on a marble effect paint on top then peeled the stickers off and worked on top. i chose to create a marble effect because I really like the background of the inspirational images and so wanted to incorporate it into my design.

Final image for jewel and coloured lights...

Been extremely busy these past few weeks, arranging shoots and making sure everything is running smoothly so have had to resort to jotting things down in a notebook. But i'm here now to keep this blog updated. the last post shows inspirational images that I used to create one of my shoots and I now have the final result!!

I am really happy with these images. It was very tricky working with gels on the lights but I do feel they cam out well. If I could change anything about them I think it would be her clothing. I think that more casual clothing could have worked very well with the look, making it a bit of a contrast.
The second image is my favourite and is also the one I intend to use as one of the images produced for the Kodak campaign.
