Theme 1 - Annie Leibovitz - Monarchy
This video is a fascinating insight into the personality of the Queen and how Lebovitz deals with the pressure of the shoot. The resulting images are fantastic, however, I was suprised to learn how they were created with so much post production work.
The top image is highly dramatic with muted colours and shapes. It is a dominating image of the queen as she is positioned centrally in the photograph and is wearing a dark, strong colour. The bottom image is a little lighter as the queen is sitting and is not taking up so much of the frame. The colour of her clothing is much lighter and the use of highlights is much greater then the previous image.
