Final Major Project – Getting Started: Photography

Since I decided on a children’s book I’ve had many looks at other illustrators out there. As already mentioned I very much like Agnezi Beruzzi’s style, since I like that she combines photography within her work.

I want to use some form of collage too, even though I have never really used that before. I’ve had a look around and at least on the British market in the British shops and libraries I could not find any children’s books that contain photography of people – objects yes, but not people.

So I was fortunate enough to be granted permission from some lovely friends to take plenty of photos of their almost 4-year-old daughter. Isn’t she the cutest???  She reminds me of Dora the Explorer- in fact that’s one of her favourite shows and she showed me her backpack, map and stuffed monkey.

 I took almost 700 pictures, which I am still organizing. A lot of work – phew. I started making a reference book, so I can see the poses I have available. I can then use them in my digital work, but for overview purposes, this works best me. Even though it takes AGES to cute them all out.

I’ve also had a little go on arranging them, just to see, how it might look like and I quite like it.
