Hi, ive2tellu about my still life project

Hi, je dois vous parler de mon projet still life

In our program at IED we have a still life shooting. Unlike the photo set lesson, we only had one theme. The theme of our project was Obsession for perfection. We had the choice to shoot an item (jewels, hat, clothes, shoes…) or a styling (outfit, silhouette). I opted for a styling. I was inspired by Christian Dior  “New Look” silhouette and Grace Kelly, who was a model of perfection and wore  the new look silhouette in many movies (Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, High Society…). And, as you can see I was also inspired by Mad Men theme which comes from the movie North by Northwest by Alfred Hitchcock.

This picture wasn’t the one I presented, there was the background that I decided to delete after the advice of my professor during the exam. And it’s much more better!

Dans notre programme au IED, on a un projet de still life. Contrairement au cours de photo set, on avait un seule thème et un shooting final. Le thème de nôtre projet était: L’obsession pour la perfection. On avait le choix entre shooter un élément (bijoux, chapeau, vêtement, chaussures…) ou un “styling” (vêtement, silhouette ,…). J’ai choisi de shooter un styling. J’ai été inspiré par la silhouette “New Look” de Christain Dior et Grace Kelly, qui incarnait la perfection et portait la silhouette new look dans de nombreux films (Fenêtre sur cour, Le crime était presque parfait, Haute société…). Et comme vous pouvez le voir je me suis inspirée du générique de Mad Men, inspiré du film La mort au trousses de Alfred Hitchcock.

La photo n’est pas celle que j’ai présenté, il y a avait un fond que j’ai effacé sur les conseils de ma professeur lors de mon examen. Et c’est bien meilleur!
