Test Work

The First Test Shoot

I’m not at college on Tuesdays as its my days off, so I made contact with Mystik to go down every Tuesday morning, and they said yes that was fine. So the next Tuesday I went down to the shop with one of colleges camera (Nikon D3200) which I didn’t know how to use as I am used to Canons but there wasn’t any left.

When I went into the shop I wanted to start taking photographs similar to the photographs that Id seen other shops had in the window and websites. When I started my shoot, the camera wasn’t picking up any lights even though the lighting in the shop is really good as there’s a huge window including lots of lights. I tried changing the shutter speed and the aperture, but only the ISO changed, so I had to use the flash on the photographs, so I knew that I would be coming back to take another re shoot. The photographs that are below are the photographs that I took on that Tuesday morning.




Production Plan

Week 1: In the first week of my project, I wanted to find a client that I could take pictures for which was free of charge. Once I have found a client, I will ask them politely for them to write me a brief on what they would like me to do so then I can start planning on my presentation, so I can achieve their desired photographs.

Week 2: In week 2, I will be researching all the different styles that my client wants me to take and then I can plan and sort out a date for me to go and start taking photographs (test shoots) . I will research all the photograph ideas my client would like me to take so I have a clear vision, so I wont be wasting any time on my project.

Week 3: In week 3, I hopefully will have taken a test shot and will have decided what style I will be doing the final shoot. Then I will bring the images back to college and edit them how my client would like them. I will be blogging my process through my whole project.

Week 4: In week 4, I will be showing my client my photographs that I have taken and if they are happy with the test shoots and edits them, I can continue with my final shoot and carrying on editing.

Week 5: In the final week, I will be preparing my photographs for the deadline and making sure that my blog is up to date and should be up to the standard it should be at.
