Title: The Reproduction
Assignment 6 Part 1 from my NYIP.edu Professional Photographer Course
Submit one photo recreated from an ad campaign. This advertisement can be still-life, lifestyle advertising, or fashion. Upload a scan or photo of the original advertisement with your photograph.
Look through consumer magazines or online ads, and select an advertisement containing a product photograph that appeals to you. It should contain items and/or products that are easy for you to obtain. We want you to try to make an exact duplicate of the photograph in the ad. Duplicate the setup and shoot it as best you can. The picture you select should be one you find appealing, and should be simple enough with respect to garment, location, and props for you to reproduce its mood without major expense to you.
Naturally, we don’t expect you to reproduce the exact product—just use something that is similar in general appearance. And if a model is involved, we don’t expect you to duplicate the face and form of the $1,000-an-hour model in the ad. Rather, use this assignment as an opportunity to see how well your expert direction can turn your sister or brother, spouse or girl-next-door into a fashion model. Have fun with this assignment. Use your imagination and ingenuity.
