Purple Party

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

Purple has been associated with feeling excited, so what else is more exciting than a birthday party! I thought the two most prominent parts of a birthday party is cake and balloons. I like the childlike atmosphere this creates, an innocent party - very different from all my other shoots as they tend to be very sexual.

For this shoot I used an A1 purple sheet of paper for the background. Baloons, cupcakes and candles from Tesco, and purple t-shirt from Primark. I also got the model to put a hint of purple eyeshadow on.

The balloon is taped to the wall to stop it falling down and to give the illusion that it is full of helium.

Editing - Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 - The blonde hair and the purple creates a contrast and the hair came up a little yellowy - which I had to edit on photoshop.

I also adjusted the levels, contrast, brightness and vibrance to enhance the photo.

I got rid of the unnecessary background and took out the models nose ring.
