>> When shooting my "scene" I ran into the problem of Coco Chanel and the quotes being to large for the dresses. I was not able to achieve the look that I wanted. Here are some shots of different thing I attempted. I know now that I need to make the words on the transparencies much smaller. My projector could only achieve a certain size. I used an "old school" projector and I liked the look of it, I just was unable to get the placement of the name and quote that I wanted and good framing and cropping of the set up. The photos that are not black and white are not color corrected.
|something I tried: just putting the transparency in|
front of the camera.
After crit I learned that she is not represented enough. I really wanted my poster to be simple in the use of objects and color. Coco Chanel used black and white a lot in her designs and one her most famous designs, being the dress suit, consists of simple shape and line. So her fashion and her designs were the basis for my poster. I understood that I needed more information, or either place the dresses in a new formation and add some more items... which I have!
-off to experiment!
