During college, I had to choose a theme for my studio project, and I decided to chose “Album Covers”. I got the choice to create new album covers or re-create existing ones. I had previously done a project just like this when I was in AS Level and I really enjoyed it! I thought now I have been doing Photography for almost 3 years, I could create better quality album covers with my new skills I really love music so this was the perfect choice for me! I decided to re-create existing album covers, so I began to research artists that I like and that were capable of me re-create. I then narrowed it down to these 6; Madonna, Cobra Starship, Eurythmics, Jessie J, Kylie & Lady Gaga.
With this project being specifically for studio lighting, I was lucky enough to get a studio lighting equipment set from my partner for Christmas so I used my own lights to take the pictures Once I got all my pictures, I began to edit them using Photoshop to create textures, text and different layers. I learnt quite a lot of new Photoshop techniques from watching videos of Youtube such as the light trail in the Cobra Starship remake. I also used Google to search for the font of the text used in the original covers to try and get similar ones. I of course checked the license of the use too to make sure I could use them
What do you think of my recreations and can you tell which is which without reading the subtitle? Let me know what you think!
