A. Project name
Each one came with a personal title opinion and we all decided together that the ACID title that Roman suggested, would be the most appropriate title, because it embraces all 4 concepts.
I personally agreed with Roman's idea, because it reflects my project very well and I was able to use my title option as a subtitle : "TOXIC"
B. Collective research
- in college library comparing different layouts
As a group, we decided to go for a 30cm by 30cm (square) format.
The book inside will contain 4 chapters, and will illustrate 3 different layouts.
Kingsley Rogers - his image will cover 3 quarters of the total of both pages and will not contain captions or other texts
Maria Green: - the exposed layout is the same as Kingsley's, which personally I like, because it offers a balance to the book. Maria's pictures are displayed in 3: 4 without text.
Roman Hajduk, decided just like me to go in a 1: 1 square version. Leaving a white frame of about 4cm - which personally gives me an effect of order and cleanliness, especially since our book is in square format.
Alexandru Radu Popescu - I chose a 1: 1 format (square) with an alternation of arial and camera images. The photo, covers the entire page except for the portraits that have a 1.5cm white frame. I considered that the white frame, embraces the image and offers a powerfull senset to it. I also tried to unite 2 different images and create the illusion for the viewer that it would be a single image.
The difference between me and Roman's layout is that his frame is thicker than mine, but still offers a connection for the images.
C. Collective meeting
- debating ideas on solucion, how to shoot plan A with plan B - explained from each one
The color decision was made based on the dominant color in each project, in a collective meeting.
E. Planning dates,
- and deadlines for shooting, organizing a new meeting, each with visual material : photograph.
