Advanced Studio Practice 2B
Exploring issues in relation to Fast food and how it affects the new people, and what drives them to buy this kind of food and what they thing about it and do they actually understand the damage it does to them. I will be photographing fast food searching the side effects of fast food, I then will be photographing the fast food to look appealing to show why people attracted to certain foods.
Within this project I will be exploring various kinds of fast food such as burgers, Pizzas and many other fast foods that could be very unhealthy to have on a daily basis. Within this I will be looking at various kinds of take always and looking at the way they advertise their business and see how they advertise there month watering food that the public is influenced by. What I have realised is most people don’t care about what these fast foods have inside as it could have anything inside it. Most people take fast food as an advantage as they may not need to cook at home so the next easiest option would be to get a takeout not knowing the effects it may have.
Within this project I will be exploring the different fast food that is advertised and also find out the after affects that it causes people. Not most people think anything about the after affect of eating junk food so I feel that I should do some research and make others aware of the damage that fast food could do to them.
I will be photographing my images in a natural environment as that’s to show how takeout food is eaten most people tend to eat outside rather than at home. My aim is to make my images look eye catching and mouth watering as you would see on a leaflets that get posted through the door food that you see in magazines my aim is to get images that grab the attention of the public like they get influenced by fast food. I would like to use natural day light lighting, as we are coming to spring in April I am hoping we get some sun light which would be perfect to shoot my food photography and it would be great to have some natrual light images with some strong lighting.
My target audience would be teenager and students that study the reason to this is because they are the main audience that are influenced to this kind of food and they have it on a daily basis, which is not good and they should be aware of balancing their diet
By doing further research and talking with my class colleagues I have thought about making a questionnaire list and asking others what food they would prefer and that they enjoy eating from that questionnaire I will be adding up the most popular food and photograph that in a way of how it is seen when served. As I had thought of choosing food that I thought was best but talking to other and getting help and support which really help and I thought of changing things around by capturing food as others see and what they enjoy and think is best to eat.
Within this proposal my target is to get in touch with takeaways and ask them weather I could do a shoot within the takeaway, if this is not possible my next aim would be to either get the food packed separately, this way I would be able to bring it home and put the food together so I know how I would shoot it and I could choose my angles in order to get the right shoot.
I have been talking to my class colleagues and tutors, which have been very helpful as they have given me some great useful information in regards on how I could photograph my food, within the task I am wanting to get useful information from people that do photography in order to get the perfect shoot for my final results.
I have changed my plans within shoot my food as I thought of doing close up shoots and getting most of the detail of the food in order for people to get an idea of what I am trying to produce. My aim is to do a bit of both some images that are direct zoomed in images and I want some images that show food as a whole as some people like to see more within the image and get behind the scenes of what else is on the table. Having done my shoots using a flash my next aim is to use daylight as this will help be more and bring light in and fall on to my food that I am photographing.
