This image of Lilly Cole shot by Nick Knight for Vogue demonstrates his editorial work for this magazine that he has won awards for. This image shows the Angelic theme of his work. Pale colours have been used to make the model look very innocent and make the gold stand out on the dress. This has been taken with a wide shot this is because the photographers is not far away from the model and he has no need to have to take the picture from a very long distance to see the detail. This image has been take in a studio as you can tell. Artificial lighting would have been use in this situation to get righting in the right places, so the photographer can control how bright the room is and what light shines where. This is a manipulated shoot and has been controlled we know this as the model is posing. It isn't natural for her to be standing on one leg and waving her arms. She is posing like that to look very elegant and almost as if she's floating. This represents an angelic approach the image. The colours in this image compliment each other and the gold stands out from the white which makes it attractive to the audience.
This image demonstrates Nick Knights editorial work using celebrity endorsement (Lady gaga).This image shows a powerful effect to his work. He has used a very powerful women and used her to create a very powerful and original image. Strong darker colours have been used to make the model look very strong and it stands out as the smoke makes the image look very empowering like she is on fire. This has been taken with a wide shot this is because the photographers is not far away from the model and he has no need to have to take the picture from a very long distance to see the detail. Also the image has the model stood at the right and the left is just background space to let room for the smoke to spread around the image. This image has been take in a studio as you can tell. Artificial lighting would have been use in this situation to get righting in the right places, so the photographer can control how bright the room is and what light shines where. This is a manipulated shoot and has been controlled we know this as the model is posing. Post production has been used in this image to create the smoke. The smoke would have been added as an effect after the images were shot. The brightness has been changed and the model will have been edited to look as perfect as possible
These are two images of some of Nick Knights more unusual fashion photography images. These two pictures from his portfolio demonstrate the wackier and more creative side of his work. The two images contrast each other by the skin of the models and the outfits their in (black and white, white and black) The backgrounds are reflecting the colour of the model as you can tell. This makes Nicks work very effective as he is using race to create a very original creative empowering image. He uses a black and white filter but no in post production he uses it by having the model in black and white and surroundings. This has been taken with a wide shot this is because the photographers is not far away from the model and he has no need to have to take the picture from a very long distance to see the detail. This image has been take in a studio as you can tell from the very plain backgrounds. Artificial lighting would have been use in this image t to get righting in the right places, so the photographer can control how bright the room is and what light shines where. This is a manipulated shoot as each model in the image is posing by holding on to a prop or looking away from the camera and sat down. It isn't natural for her to be standing holding black bits of stringy objects. Post production has been used on these images to make them very sharp and the post production has been used more on the second mage to obtain the black swirly objects and make them look they have been moving to blur the out.
Irving Penn (born in 1917 and died in 2009) was a American photographer who was famously known for his fashion work. He was known for his fashion photography, portraits and still life's. Irving Penn’s career included work at Vogue magazine and he worked for independent clients like Issey Miyake and Clinique. Penn’s work is well known internationally and his work has been shown across the world. Even though he is dead he still continues to inform people through his past image about the art of his photography. Irving Penn’s career started when his work was published in the popular magazine Harpers Bazaar. He worked doing this for two years when Vogue picked up on his talents and wanted him to work for them. He then got a position at Vogue working on the layout of the magazine when he started to experiment with the photography through this he then got to shoot covers for vogue and this is when his career kicked off as he was getting noticed for his editorial fashion work. Through this he then started to shoot for independent clients like Clinique and YSL.
This Image is one of Irving Penn’ s most famous. It was used as the cover of Vogue. This is a very striking images and almost looks like it has been drawn. Penn’s look is very classy and sophisticated images whereas Nick Knight went for a more creative style. Due to the era that Penn started his career his images are mostly black and white this also gives his work that more vintage classier affect. This images uses very contrasting colours and uses a very strong black against a white background to make the clothing stand out. A wide shot has been used here to get a half body shot of the model. The photographer wasn’t that far away so he didn’t need to use a long shot to retrieve the detail for the image. This picture is manipulated because it is a fashion shot they use the model and use a studio to shoot the clothes the model is purposely looking away and standing with her arms on her waist. Lighting would have been used to make this shot look a lot brighter and to make the contrast of the colours really stand out. Due to the year in which this was shot they didn’t have the technology to edit pictures like they edit them now so they really had to do a good job with the lighting and photography and that’s how Penn has created this very simple but classy image.
Just like Night Knight Penn uses celebrity endorsement in his photography ( Nicole Kidman) this images is very sophisticated and classy like most of his work it has used a wide lens to shoot the images again because the photographer is not far away from the model so does not need a long lens. The model is posing for the camera which makes it a manipulated shoot. This image is very controlled from the way she has her arms to the way she is looking and sitting. Most of Penn's images the model is in a very classy 1940’s type of look as that is when Penn started to become very popular. Its another black and white image as you can see but compared to last image its in a lot more better quality. The model is wearing very longs clothes and jewelry this makes her look very long and tall like because she is sat down this is really effective because she takes up most of the image and it really shows off the fashion she is wearing. It is most likely for their to be artificial lights because it is conventional for fashion photography to have artificial lighting. There has been post production done on this image as you can tell the model looks perfect and has no imperfections on her face. A black and white filter has been used in this image.
This is one of the newest pictures that Penn shot for Vogue as you tell because it is in colour compared to most of his images. This one still follows the pattern of his images looking very elegant and classy but because it is in colour it looks more modern than anything else. This image particularly reflects Nick Knights photographs the most because the model is in a very out there dress and it has a sheer white background. The colours in this image are very bright and flowery compared to his very dark blacks and whites which is shot with mostly. As you can see the model is posing which shows this was a manipulated shoot and not candid. Artificial lighting has been used to make the model look very bright and to show off the colours in the dress and her cheek bones. The lighting makes the model looking very on point and sharp. The images itself is very flowery and girly which is represented by the dress and pinks and greens. A wide lens has been used to fit in the model with her legs stepped apart and because the photographer was not stood well away from the model. As this is a lot more modern post production has been used on the image to create the model to look perfect the model has no imperfections or blemishes on her skin at all and it is completely flawless. The contrast has been controlled to make her stand out from the background and she has been made to look very goddess like.
