This is two images from the shoot. One which worked and another one which didn’t. The black and white photo doesn’t work so well as it doesn’t have a narrative behind it. The main problem was the stand bits under the soldiers because they didn’t come off. It made the soldiers look like toys even more, where if I would have cloned them out it may be would have worked better. I like the black and white edit on it, as it shows some old side to it, because war was long time ago and B/W associates with “old”. I also like the idea of adding fruit to the images, they bring some sweetness and kindness to the images.
The coloured version works better as it looks like they actually having a war, blurred DOF work because you can still see the shapes of soldiers. the blanked gives some war feel to it, as they are kind of colours of rocks and grass.
Overall the images don’t work because of the stand bit on the soldiers, if there wouldn’t be any of that, it would have looked better and realistic, even if it isn’t.
