Jana Williams : Research


Jana Williams is a photographer based in Southern California. She specialises in wedding photography, but also does lifestyle photography. Although I'm not going to do wedding photography for my project, I found the photographs inspiring and I couldn't help but love how she photographs the models. In a lot of photographs she pays close attention to the details of the dress which is why I can relate these photographs to my chosen theme of fashion.

There are several meanings behind these photographs. As they are wedding photographs, there is a strong sense of romance in the pictures, as well as elegance.

Again, like the two other artists I have analysed, there is a dreamy effect to the photographs. I think the dreamy effect particularly works well with these photographs as it adds romance to the wedding theme. I chose these photographs for fashion, as in the second photograph particularly, you can see the detail of the dress very well, which is something that I will bear in mind when taking my own photographs - to make sure you get the details of the outfits in. It makes it more interesting, seeing the delicate pattern of the lace. The locations for these photographs is also interesting. I noticed, when looking through Jana's photographs, that in every single photograph she had taken, the location was always very beautiful and they work well with the theme of the photograph.

These pictures have definitely inspired me for my own work - to think about the location, keeping the lighting soft, and also to focus on the details of the outfit, as I think that these will all help me to create a good fashion photograph.
