For my next shoot i’m looking at shoots in large flower fields as it’s very accessible for me as i live in the middle of the countryside there are plenty of fields perfect for shoots. So i’ve been gathering a few images and placing them onto a board on ‘Pinterest’ to give me a bit of inspiration for the composition of the images i want to create. I thought it would be a contrast from previously shooting in the busy urban streets of Brighton and now changing to the quiet countryside of Hampshire. When looking at these images i found that they are all very similar in terms of composition, it’s mostly midshots showing the model from the waste up and the model is more or less stood in the field. Although these shots have been taken in such simple locations, the images are so strong and bold which is what i like about them.


Experimentation: This was an experimentation inspired by Theo Wenner. After viewing his ‘Put Your Feet Up And Enjoy The Ride’ shoot(Few images featured at the bottom), i decided to play around with how i’d present my images and doing it in the style of how Wenner presented his images in i-D magazine. Titling my shoot 'Welcome to Brighton with Sophie Howard’. I added white borders around some of the images like Wenner as it gives off a polaroid look which i quite liked when i first saw his shoot in the magazine. Although they are probably film photos or maybe just digital, it does make you question what he used to capture these images with, but apart from that i very much like the colour/effect in each of his shots, which what captured my eye in the first place.

Part Two: How to Play a Fashion Designer

Fashion is one of the most glamorized industries - movies portray fashion designers as fabulous, large life-living, gorgeous girls who spend all day drawing and looking at fabrics. And while some of that is true, the majority of what a fashion designer does is very different from that. No, fashion design isn’t Project Runway. As a fashion designer myself, I’ve put together a guide to help any rper who’s playing a fashion designer - it’s one of my biggest pet peeves to see an unrealistic, and frankly, annoying fashionista. I hope this is helpful! This is Part Two, and Part One, which covers living in Manhattan, can be found here.

We visited the new designers show in London as part of an art trip, through school. We looked at the visual communications/graphic design/illustration kind of section.
I was thinking about doing an art foundation and then going on to do a fashion course after. Well actually, in all honestly I was more on the borderline between illustration and fashion design for a while as @artofennun really opened my eyes to the world of illustration. Before looking at her artwork I was deadset on fashion design. After a while I did decide that actually fashion may be better for me. However, after walking around this huge area, filled to the brim with exciting and innovative new designers, I was pretty surprised to find myself back in the same situation as I was in before. Illustration or fashion. I am going to do an art foundation (hopefully, if I get in) to help me decide the path I want to take. This exhibition was simply amazing and I would definitely reccomend it to anyone going into foundation or is interested in art. Of course, I brought back a gazillion postcards and business cards because the designs were just fabulous.
After coming back I was a bit tired but I did manage to practise my handwriting for the first time. Well, it’s not really practising my handwriting it was more like looking at my handwriting and subtly tweaking parts so I liked it better.
