Before the shoot I had my subject polish/shine the apple while I was setting up my camera, the apple then became so shiny that it reflected the background as well as my subjects finger tips.
These are two examples of what I want to achieve from my images, Everything to be in black and white but then have one or 2 things in colour. These are the same image, I just cropped the landscape image down to make it portrait and worked on it a bit more than the landscape image. Out of the two I prefer the portrait image because there’s less negative space which allows you to focus on the subject.
These are two other example images made in the same way as the image above, I think the apple looks better in these images but I prefer the posing in the above image.
This is the final image I chose for the snow white inspired images. My subjects skin was blurred using the blur tool as it allowed for the skin to look more even and covered up areas where the make up had faded. The background was made white and the saturation was removed from the coat. The blue highlights on the apple & lips were covered up using the brush tool on a hue layer.
