test shots for ruth's dream
Hello. Me again. I played around with the props I made today with Hayley Hobden, who is an amazing photographer. She let me borrow her camera. Unfortunatly I am not as pleased with the results as I thought I would. I am going to try doing them again, getting someone to help hold a torch behind the curtain like a moon. I want to try taking the pictures later in the day also so the backdrop goes that funny bluish twilighty colour in the original picture I took of it.
I am also thinking I may take a few pictures and display them by scatter hanging. I want to get some film for my polaroid and experiment taking pictures with that next time as well. Or when I can get some money!
Let me know what you think. I think I may get Hayley to actually take the pictures next time as I am not that brilliant at actually composing and taking photos. I have an idea in my head which I can style okay, but when it comes to capturing it I am rubbish!
I love the photographs on the Vintage Wedding Dress Company website, and those taken by India Hobson. I love how pale and washed out they look, but still glamourous and otherworldly. I feel my pictures look a bit amateurish. Like the photographs you see at Foundation Art exhibitions!
I need some help and opinions.
