MEDIA MUSIC ASSIGNMENT - Photo Analysis - Scissor Sisters

Extracts from this document...


The Scissor Sisters are a band of five formed in America in 2001, who incorporate pop, dance and glam rock genres to their music style. To start off, the photo uses very vibrant lights in the background. This implies that they are lively and energetic. The warm colours like red, orange and pink connotes that they have energy and imagination, whereas colours like blue and green propose fecundity and positivism. These vibrant lights all contrast each other which make the photo stand out effectively, and behind the colours is complete black which increases the contrast, therefore increasing the effectiveness. This shows that they are not all about happiness and positivism, but they have an element of sophistication and technicality. ...read more.


The camera technique integrated in the photo is a long shot. This has been used so that the band is dominant in the picture because they take up the whole frame. It also helps the band merge into their surroundings. The camera angle used is a straight on angle to make the audience feel equal with the band, therefore discouraging the audience to judge them. It also provides an effect where the audience feels if they are in front of them and in the studio. The final point to be analysed is their composition. They are in a group together, but as the band is made up of an odd number, five, there will always be one centre person comprising slightly more value of superiority than the other members. ...read more.


Ana Matronic and Del Marquis (right) are also both very confident as shown by their open body, but they both obviously take a less important roll in the band to Jake Shears because they are not positioned in the middle. Paddy Boom and Babydaddy (left) show slightly less poise than the others. Babydaddy is stood slightly to the side and not opening up like the others, maybe because of less assurance of his sexuality, and Paddy Boom is stood almost behind Jake Shears; again, because of his lack of confidence than the others and quite shy about his sexuality, however all apart from Jake engage eye contact with the audience suggesting that they want to make an intimate link with the viewer. The eye contact isn't very serious; it is a moderately composed engagement with the audience implying they are not an aggressive, threatening band, but they are cool and relaxed. ...read more.
