Fashion photography a genre of photography devoted to clothing and other fashion items. It can be an incredibly experimental medium, and sometimes results in innovative concepts. I like to dabble in it at intervals and with different results. All fun and easy going. There are some basic things involved. Model, clothing, location and light.
If you have a professional model at hand it gets much easier as he/she knows how to pose. Otherwise especially posing can be a tricky point for many photographers. There are a lot of books about it and lately video to give you some good ideas. One thing you can and should do is browsing through the latest magazines to target suggestions about what is currently fashionable and what catches your eye.
Than there is the matter of location. Getting this right is important, especially if you want to convey a message with your kind of fashion. Think about it in following terms: urban setting , seasons, rural places, meadows, beaches, forests and many more.
Apart from all eventualities it comes down to organizing. Getting everyone involved, having a place to shoot, getting the right cloth, the right make up and some little or more bigger props as well.
One of the important thoughts should involve a theme or concept which will determine the choices for makeup and location as well as getting the right clothes different light and so on.
I wanted to do some fashion shooting all along and thinking about traveling, trains and time to relax I came up with an idea which I didn't follow up as I was asked by a local fashion designer to help her out in getting images for her look book and fashion spreads about the theme “Fly me to the moon”. This exited me a lot as it involved some great ideas for editorial work as well.
She created a mood-board from various magazines, pinterest and fashion sites on the web for inspiration regarding poses and lighting. Wow she was really trying to get some fancy images. As I didn’t have to worry about all other parameters involved it was a no brainer to agree. It is always a pleasure to work with professionals from fashion designer, to make up artist and last but not at all least the great models. It was just fun all the time.
If you find the garments in the images attractive don’t hesitate and walk into the fashion store Double Dose hear in Hanoi at 35 b Nguyen Binh Khiem. You'll surely will find some special garment made for you.
Time to get ready for more with designer Giang Diễm Quỳnh, make up artist Doan Phuong Thao and model Luu Van Phung.
