Annette Messager Inspired Shoot

Annette Messager Inspired Shoot

For my first Artist Research before my final A2 Module I choose to research into Annette Messager – I was inspired by her work of body parts and use of dark colours (Black and White & Sepia) due to how how stimulating her work was and how she could turn a normal body part and┬ámake it to seem much more.

I choose to focus on photographing the hands, eyes, nose, ears and neck. This was due to I felt these was the most personal parts on the face and the ones that would be the best to photograph as for the ear it would use a lot of Golden Section and the hands a lot of Repetition and Leading Lines.

Overall I was very shocked with the outcome, when I starting taking the photographs I was worried they would look to boring however aswell as having these as my final outcomes I created a lot of Manuals using tracing papers and even framed some to make them appear more 3D and realistic.

Below shows the final outcomes of this shoot.

Scanography

This shoot was one of my favourite types to do and it was very fun as well – The shoot was done on a scanner and then edited in Photoshop.

I have recently worked on light painting Photography in the studio and then edited in Photoshop to make the colours appear more vibrant – Here is the final outcome.

In AS Level Photography I decided to research into Graham Holland and produce my own pieces – I worked with Gradient Mapping to achieve this and travelled to Manchester to photograph the architecture to do this piece.

 

Poster Design

Poster Design

Here’s a recent project creating a Poster Design for a fictitious Recording Label.

I came up with several variations for different designs as to what the company could try and achieve and choose my Final Piece out of the rest due to I liked how the colours contrasted together and how the colours was very subtle yet still vibrant and gave the impression as to what a Recording Label features.

I took all Images visible myself and edited them to look this way.
