As we knew the shoot would be based around various locations and would involve lots of movement we felt minimal equipment would be needed when working on this shoot. Especially when large groups of people are involved for instance: myself, Aislinn, Yasmin and Jessica and 7 models standing lights did not seem like a sensible idea as they would immediatley become hazardous. Hence our decision to light and shoot our subjects with a ringflash and a Canon MK11. This equipment seemed the best option as we needed a professional look whilst still upholding the raw aesthetic we have been looking at in previous publications such as i.D magazine. For the outside shots we decided to use just the camera and a reflector to bounce back light onto our models as the weather was good; it would have been diffacult to carry the heavy battery powered ringflash around with us in public, plus it would have been dangerouns and i don’t think it would have been as effective outside in the daylight. If i could change anything about the shoot it would be the equipment used outside as we noticed while shooting that the image quality in regards to the creative lighting and atmosphere was not as consistant, unlike the flash. Alternatively we could have used a lomo camera to make the images appear more instant and spontanious or even a hand held flash. Unfortunately due to the long organisation process and managing to get everyone involved together we could not rectify this issue immediately or reshoot as we needed to leave enough time for editing and preapring the layout for the final images.
