I think having close-ups in our photo shoot will make it easier for the target audience to see who the main singers are, it will also make it easier to see facial expressions which can give you an idea of what kind of music will be included on the digipak such as bright happy faces representing joyful songs such as Good Time
I think using shots of the models looking away from the camera will add a good effect and make the images seem more realistic rather than with them looking straight into the camera as if they have been told what expressions to pull.
I think shooting in natural backgrounds like where our video was set will help show the kind of music that is included, for example if we took some photos on the beach people usually think of a beach as an enjoyable setting where people usually gather to have fun
I also think it is a good idea to have natural backgrounds visible in the image so not all the photos are focused on the models.
Backgrounds- in the studio.
I think it is important that we use bright colours in our photo shoot for some of the backgrounds to make them eye-catching to the audience.
Using the green screen in the studio also means we can edit our backgrounds to make them unique and to our own preferences rather than having to cope with natural surroundings which could have down falls to them, for example we may want to see sunshine in the background but the weather may look foggy and feel like it is more like autumn rather than summer.
Having shots of all the artists in the photo shoot being in funny, natural positions like the photo to the left will help show the closeness and type of relationship the group have and will also stop having the attention on just one model.
I also think it is important to use a variety of angles to prevent the photo shoot from being too boring with the same medium shots. High and low angles would be a good idea.
There are a wide variety of effects we can use during our photo shoot which I think is important that we include. Effects such as having images in black and white then having certain objects in a colour would look professional and seem different to normal photos. An effect I would like to include in our shoot is the use of lights, this is done by turning the room lights off and setting a timer on the camera and having the models draw shapes with different coloured torches or glow sticks, after the timer has went off the camera then takes a photo which shows the shapes in the image. I think this would be a good effect to use as it is different and can take some skill to edit.
It is important that we use props during our photo shoot as it makes our images look unique to others. Plenty of groups could take photos at the beach or park so it wouldn’t have any individuality compared to others whereas if we included props that could be relevant to our genre this can add uniqueness to our images which can make them stand out to other photo shoot images.
There are a variety of ways we can add text to our images. For some images we could add text of lyrics from certain songs. For example if we take photos on the beach which is a scene where Good Time is set, we could add lyrics to that song somewhere on the photos.
