This is a photograph taken by famous French photographer JR. Something that has always got my attention about this image is about how simple yet powerful this specific photograph is. In most instances, a photograph is just plain and simple , not this one. Although it is as basic as it can get, two little children, one giving the other a kiss in the cheek. There is a huge message behind it which is that love is universal, no matter the color of your skin, religion, or social group you belong to. We should all share the same love for each other. (This image was taken a the Brooklyn Museum at the “JR Chronicles” exhibit.
I decided to create a modern look for rain rain, go away. It is black and white to give depression and how gray it is when the sun is not out and how the last photos are in color to represent the sun out.
I’ve chose the fairy tale – Goldilock and the three bears. I decided to be very close to the story plot, and to be literal with the storyboard, as I want to recreate authentic mood. That is why I prepared props a day before, first I planed to shoot my friend as a main character Goldilock, but there was a conflict of time the day of shooting, so I was left with nothing but become a main character myself and asked for a friend to shoot me under my directing. That is why it took me longer even after instruction what kind of shot to took and how to frame, so I was checking every photo taken to be sure, that it is what I want. The difficulties I faced was setting the camera to shoot in very small room, that is why I need to be more creative with angles of shots. So I live in loft I have a ladder to the attic, that gave me a chance to shoot from above.
For my final fairy tale theme, I decided to tell the snow-white story through pictures. I am not sure how I will shoot the story as I don’t have a fancy dress or set up for it. So I am looking at some works to get inspiration. I am also having a hard time to pick a place to shoot as I wanted a green/forest kinda theme and all the trees are dead. I think I will shoot a portion of the story at home, then I will go to a park to finish the rest of the story. After the photoshoot is done, I will use Lightroom to fix the lighting and correct colors. Then I will use photoshop to add some props such as 7 drafts, the prince, the bad queen, etc. Overall It will be a challenging assignment for me to portray the entire story.
