Yesterday was our photo shoot day for our Magazine - Book. We are basically in the process of producing a magazine called 'Book' which is a microniche magazine aimed at an audience of creatives, both nationally and internationally. The concept of the magazine is that each issue will be based on a book - hence the name 'Book'! We needed a first issue which will visually make an impact on those saturated shelves so our first issue is based on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Think eerie, spooky and gothic with a little bit of horror thrown in.
Our group were really pleased with the outcome of the shoot and we achieved the wanted eerie look to go with the magazine theme. I did the photography and think that these will be amazing for a portfolio. I still want to do some shoots with the use of professional lighting - as I'm not too good with that - so we have a studio shoot planned with some dolls which we are featuring in the magazine. The good thing about using dolls is that we don't have to give them orders, we just place them and snap! I will show these images when they are done. Hope you all like the shoot as much as I do!
