7 x 7: After the shoot... collapsed lady
These photographs of the woman collapsed were an idea for the second smaller illustration. We have experimented with different light, back drop material, colour and different elements such as the 'magic lantern', charm bracelet and candles etc.
Because the story has a lot of religious undertones and the main place in the story is based around the church, Gemma and I wanted to produce a stain glass window effect. The story seems to cover a lot of imagery about the light, so Gem cut out some sharp edged shapes out of card and placed this in front of the projector light. Which is why you can see the sharp, shattered looking window effect projected onto our models.
We were really impressed with one of our photo's where it seems as if we've created 'God'. The white line which reaches across the image from the lamp looks as if he is watching over her and protecting her. This was one of our favourites. The only problem we found with some of the images, was we struggled to capture the detail on some of the characters faces and this is something we could later improve on. Also, i think after summer we'll try some more shots but have the camera pointing upwards to get a view looking up to the village.
