Final Project

A Women’s Power Tool: High Heel

http://www.nytimes.com/2000/03/05/weekinreview/a-woman-s-power-tool-high-heels.html

For my final project I wanted to pick a topic I connected to personally and like you said “Something that I would be proud to put in my portfolio.” For my first idea I want to take a pair of heels and shoot them on an all black background on plexiglass. A spot light will give the feeling of power and importance to the subject. I want the shoes to give the message of power and maybe even a weapon. I will give this idea a try with a different pairs of heels.

For my second idea I want to use a young lady model in heels, posing in powerful positions while still making the heels the point of focus. I still want to stick with a black back drop and try different lighting. I want dramatic and maybe even a sexy feel. There can be a shot where the model isĀ stepping on a males hand. Feminism is the message and the heel is the key.

    My only reservation about the article is that it is over 15 years old. The topic is certainly still current though. I don’t think you need to get literal about have the shoes hurting anyone. Lighting should be able to say it all.
