Final photographs for Shoot 13 - ‘In touch with nature’ Shoot, using the photographs from Shoot 12.
From when I took Shoot 12, I had the intention to print out and use these photographs in a natural environment whereby it looks like the model is actually reaching for the trees, plants and flowers. To show that she is comfortable in the environment, over the town she is in in the picture.
To take these photographs I chose to increase the ISO, due to dark, grey weather and to edit them on Photoshop I increased the saturation and colour to again, show the natural environment in a more positive light.
I chose to place the first and second photograph (where she is holding onto a pole in the town and gazing into the opposite direction and reaching out) by a tree so that it portrays how much she prefers the nature and its tree and how amazed she is by it, in comparison to how dull the lamppost is, and fundamentally the town.
Even though in the third photograph she isn’t reaching out for something so visibly like the others, I decided to place the photograph by a tree that had the same ‘Y’ shape, which portrays relaxation and that she feels comfortable being part of the nature.
For the forth photograph, where she is bending down and reaching out, I thought it would blend well together if I propped the photograph down by some flowers, as it looks like she is bending down to sniff them, but she can’t.
This shoot is all about the crave of nature and imagination. She is visibly not in this natural environment, but in a socially constructed town environment, yet by reaching out for trees, flowers etc. that aren’t there shows that she is imagining and perhaps daydreaming about them.

Editing process on Photoshop;
I decided to edit these photographs by decreasing the vibrancy, saturation and I also played around with the levels to make the location appear dull and miserable to make it seem more negative. Also being a representation of how she feels.
Shoot 12 - Crave for nature
In this shoot I wanted to achieve a look of nature deprivation and isolation from being in a city location which has a lack of nature. I asked my model, Chloe to pose acting like she was in a natural environment, reaching out for leaves trees etc. and reaching for freedom. I am then planning to use the most successful photographs in my 13th shoot whereby I will be holding them up by a natural forest location to show a deeper meaning, which would look like she’s mentally there, but is trapped symbolically, in the town and the photograph.

Shoot 11 - Nature in London
From the 1780’s onwards Britain was transformed due to the Industrial Revolution. Until then most people lived in the countryside which was in fact situated in parts of London. After researching this I was then influenced to do a shoot based on this. So, I printed natural images of the countryside from the internet and then used them while I was in the city of London by placing them by famous modernised landmarks to portray a dramatic viewpoint of the industrial change and tourism evolution that has occurred over the past couple of centuries, whether it is viewed as a positive or negative change.

Editing process on Photoshop
Despite the weather being very dull, I managed to make my final photographs appear enhanced in a positive light. Photoshop helped me achieve this look by the levels tool and the enhancement of vibrancy, saturation, brightness, contrast and I added a tint of red.
The enhanced photographs also represent how she feels, happy, being in a location engrossed with freedom and joy.
