Quality Street Wrappers

 

I like to have a big bowl of Quality Street chocolates over the festive season. Perfect for when people pop in for a coffee. I love the jewel colours on the wrappers - so Chrismassy!

Details

I liked this whole idea of everything being wrapped in paper or plastic like sweets at Christmas. They are small decorations of colour that seem to be in every room of the house around this time of year, so to me they are very representative of the festive period. It would be interesting to create a room decorated as if it were a sweet, so everything is wrapped. Or even to create garment or dress a model with wrapping for a shoot that represents the holiday season.

Again with the taped wrapping of a model, this image shows clear tape changing the shape of the body and creating a very interesting shape. It reminds me of a puffer jacket, made out of the skin. I would love to progress my thoughts here and design a puffer jacket that isn't just a jacket...something that challenges what winter outerwear should look like. This feeds back into the project focus quite nicely as my Christmas holiday will be spent in the cold here in Surrey, so coats are necessary essentials.

In this image, I also like the marks the oils of the models skin have left on the tape, it reminds me of winter frost on windows.

Models wrapped in plastic/ christmas wrapping/ tape?

Details

Tape at christmas is an essential, but taking it out of the context of present wrapping and instead, applying it to the body to contort or distort the look of a model, could create something very visually exciting. I like the use of the red tape too. I am going in the direction of using red for this project so this source image is going to play a key part in my inspiration.

COLOUR THEORY

"In the visual arts, colour theory is a body of practical guidance to colour mixing and the visual effects of a specific colour combination. There are also definitions (or categories) of colours based on the colour wheel: primary colour, secondary colour and tertiary colour."

COLOUR TONE

"In colour theory, a tint is the mixture of a colour with white, which increases lightness, and a shade is the mixture of a colour with black, which reduces lightness. A tone is produced either by the mixture of a colour with grey, or by both tinting and shading."

"Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money."

This shade of green in particular connotes Christmas to me and landscapes lined with fir trees.

Details

"Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation."

Details

To play with spray paint in trying to create a monochromatic series of images could be fun. Maybe by taking festive objects I find over the winter break and spraying them the same colour, then arranging them in a series of photographs.

Details

I want to focus on a mixture of red and pink garments and backdrops for my photo series, bringing in some hits as to my surroundings over the christmas break, whilst also designing a theme that expresses colour and pattern.

I wanted to include some form of garments in my project as I've always dressed up for christmas at home. As a kid I would always wear coloured tights so I thought I'd take that idea and modernise it to fit in with the colour theme for my photo series.

The use of table decorations as an overlay on the photos is really interesting as it adds an extra sense of emotion to the image behind, which in the case of these two doesn't look particularly happy before. Its like a cover-up of festive feelings in the shape of stars.

The use of table decorations/ stars as a 3D layer on top of the image adds depth and further context into the time of year the picture is set in. It also adds potential for embroidered stars etc.
