The Power Of Colour
Colour is everywhere. We are surrounded by it therefore we tend to take it for granted and forget how impactful it is. I was trying to think of ideas for power of colour I thought all Purple fields of lavender however as there are no fields like that in my area I then had to change my ideas. so I got the idea of using smoke bombs. I bought please from Amazon however there was a few difficulties when buying them. This was due to the fact that they advertise buying a whole set of smoke bombs in different colours but instead I just got free smoke bombs in the same colour . I decided to continue with my plans and shoot all of these at Formby beach Where there was abandoned buildings buried underneath the sand. I fought this could add to the atmosphere of my image and give it a more rebellious feel. This was also my first time shooting with smoke bombs so I found it to be a little tricky to get the smoke in the right position with the model However I believe I created some great final outcomes.
Dusk til Dawn
Dust till dawn was another tricky task to do. I struggled with finding ideas to related to the subject such as sunsets, speedlights and using flares and sparklers at night however none of these did not succeed. So I came up with the idea of trying to invoke an motion of what people feel like after a days work after a busy day's work and returning home through a bus or walking down dark alleyways.
