Planning Production

Front cover image:

IDEA 1 = ‘band’ Successful Failure (actually a made up band, I will be using a model for my front cover image, pretending to be a guitarist) idea 1 is very music based, set in a studio-looking environment, the girl will be dressed Gothic but with a twist of classic ‘rocker look’, she will be posing with her electric guitar and amp looking into the camera theatrically.

IDEA 2 = more’ image’ based.  This time the girl will be in a forest-like setting, posing in a clearing surrounded by trees. She will be dressed the same as in idea 1, however this time she will be pretending to be the lead singer and not the guitarist, so no guitar props will be used.  I thought it may be interesting to use a skull prop that she can hold, to make her look theatrical and Gothic, and add more interest to the photograph.

IDEA 3 = The girl will be in the church yard of St. Giles church in Wrexham, which is a Gothic church, therefore conforming with the Gothic theme, or St. Hilary's church, Wallasey - she will be standing in the church yard which is surrounded in trees and scattered with graves, holding the skull prop by her chest. However, I will be trying various other poses, such as holding the skull in one hand next to her head, and also various other locations in the church yard such as by the church. She will be dressed in the same way as in idea 1 and 2. Again the picture will be theatrical and more 'image' based.

IDEA 4= The girl will be in a room, sitting on the floor on aged looking floorboards, with candles all around her looking into the camera theatrically, I will also create a background behind her such as drawings and draped material. I will try various other poses however to see if they work better. She will be dressed in the same way as in idea 1, 2 & 3. Again the picture will be theatrical and more 'image' based.

I have decided I will try out idea 2 and 3.
