Today, I did fashion illustrations under John. I do not usually use lots of colours especially bright and vivid ones, I tried take drawings with many colours as much as possible. Then I realised that it is getting much more difficult to choose colour scheme if I use more colours. At the same time, I noticed that by making my drawings bright my idea on the way to put on colours has changed to some extent.
It was my first time to become a stylist for women ever. It was quite interesting in order that I had to make enormous consideration of the difference of body lines between women and men and also of how I could focus on making the styling elegant and feminine as well. Before getting started styling and photo shooting, I thought of the theme for styling and colour theme. In terms of the location for photo shooting, we decided to use the place surrounded by concrete which gives me an impression of something cold and no-emotional. Therefore I edited photo which would make you cold, mechanical and no-emotion there.
I think it is successful, yet need to take and edit photos fascinate to the audience.
I learnt about how art directors get involved with art work especially publications. In books or magazines, it is important to consider of how you can organise images and how effectively you can use space: margin or negative space. Then I kicked off making my own booklet based on pictures I took yesterday, and I faced some problems as i was working on. it is pretty hard to organise the images and put words or journals on them. So before deciding layout, I began to research for layout of a variety of magazines.
crit day! Unfortunately I could not finish making my booklet yet. basically I wanted to search for kinds of papers and to think of which one is suitable for my images and textiles. However there was not so much time as I thought. According to my classmates opinions, there are not enough context, images themselves are so nice though. Im feeling the same by myself, and I consider that sometimes textiles could diminish the value of images and of course the opposite thing could happen: textile can add value to pictures. It's just that I was afraid that my poor english makes images un-amazing.
