This was my finished piece for our first assignment at uni, we were given the task of creating a photo where we resemble an icon or someone we admire. I had a few ideas most of them were women, (Karen O, Florence Welch, Alison Mosshart, Kat Dennings, Edie Sedgwick..) but a few men cropped up (Hugh Laurie, Matthew Gray Gubler,John Bender-The Breakfast Club) and I thought would be a lot more interesting, so my final choice ended up being the legend that is KARL LAGERFELD. I love Karl Lagerfeld for his genius designs (for both Chanel and his own label) and this sort of image/brand he has simply made out of himself. He is instantly recognisable, even though absolutely no one in my class knows who he is or what he does, but hey! I enjoyed this task, it took ages to make myself orange with white hair and wrinkles though! A lot of bronzer and dry shampoo was sacrificed in the making of this photo! But yeah Im happy with the result, all I did to the photo was fiddle about with the contrast and the saturation a little.
I am far happier with this picture than I was with the vanity one, thank god I woke up super early so I had time to do it!I love it when spur of the moment things go to plan!
Right well I can't really be bothered to put anymore up just now, I shall continue this later.
