After Conducting My First Shoot I had to evaluate the task and look back at how the shoot had gone and how it has affected me and my outlook on this area of photography

When approaching this joint task I was apprehensive for many reasons I felt that as a task it was out of my comfort zone and was not sure of my ability in regards to lighting or fashion as a style in general, since the shoot taking place I have felt pleased with the result I have produced before the shoot I knew the style of shot I wanted to achieve which was to me lighting the scarf as I felt that was the most important part of the image and the subject of the shoot, on the shoot itself I found it a confusing experience as it felt as if no one was really sure of the process of who was in charge but over the course of the shoot I think that the concept and practice started to gel and the images show a productive shoot, I think that from the experience of the shoot I have gained knowledge of how I would act in the next shoot I think I would take more control which I tried to do by telling the models how to stand and position themselves I would also encourage the fashion students to talk and direct their models more as it helps to have their input I think.

After the shoot I looked at all my shots together I tried to narrow down the amount of images by picking 2 images for each model one full body shot and a close up shot, after doing this I then went into Photoshop to edit some of the images, I found I liked some of the images which had not been edited more and decided to keep some images as shot, once I had edited the images I chose 3 of the best photographs which I felt looked the best and most importantly showed the subject of the scarf enough.

Overall when getting the prints and looking at the online images I am happy with the end product I feel that as a whole because I was not sure of the task at first and unsure of how my photographs would appear I am pleased with result and feel that as a whole the photographs work, I am pleased with the style of lighting I have achieved as I think it lights the scarves which to me was the most important objective.
