This weekend Vivian and Scarlette came to Waterloo to take some pictures for Viv’s project. The theme is to create a poster for a line of skin care products. We had to be really creative with the props and had to ‘borrow’ my roommate’s hairdryer…
|These shots were taken at the local mall. We had to work around the curious crowd and security guards.|
|Now this one looks more like a shampoo advertisement.|
|A more high key approach.|
|This is the setup in my room for the previous shot. We couldn’t stop laughing because it was so ghetto!|
This is one of my first attempts with artificial lighting and it was very challenging but also opened up a lot of new possibilities.
If you have any comments or suggestions I would love to hear about them!
Well, it does look fantastic. I remember years ago being amazed how easy it was to create a fantastic-looking diorama with a mostly empty box ; the eye is easily deceived by a white wall, a green vine, and a cute chick. And I see you’ve employed tables to put images beside text… sorry I never got around to helping you with a better solution for that. :(
Also, can I, uh, have her number?
It looks great lol and the funny ghetto setup is pricelesss.
If its for an ad, you might want to do a skin retouch? something like.. http://freeonlineclasses.net/index.php/Photoshop-Classes/Adobe-Photoshop-CS3-Photo-Retouching-Techniques/Professional-Skin-Smoothing.html
and this one is really pro.. no way i could do any of it, but its fun to watch
i really like how you backed up and showed vivi and the hairdryer :) thats friggin awesome
sorry, no suggestions…just the comment that the shots look good like you said for a shampoo commercial. One thing I remember from skin care ads is Dove’s beauty campaign. Does that provide any inspiration?
