LG Fashion Week, Fall Collections 2009



As you can see I could barely cope with the light. I would rather have fill flash if allowed

To tell you the truth it was tough shooting fashion show. All the media , public and market people were squeezed in a small tent. I was forewarned not to go to washroom at all at the media section for 4 hours. And the warning was right on. If you are gone you will have zero spot at all. I might be able to get a spot on the side but all models could only be shot sideway.
Unlike a studio session, the lighting was barely ok for photographers and no flash is allowed. The models , all of whom would have been perfect portrait subject, were supposed or taught to be expresssionless - so only the fastion is to be focused. And I know zip about fashion at all.
My whole point is to shoot portrait/glamour on the cheap with close to perfect subjects parading towards you. Imagine the cost of paying the model, MUA , the venue and the make-up. The downside is that they will not pose for you and the pace is geared for showing off the fastion not the models.
A member of another forum (a real fashion guy) commented that the zipper of Canadian fashion is just not up to international standard???? Hello do I care. That only shows we have different take entirely

Camera shake is not an issue. Subject movement is . The pace is just too fast for my DA200mm with little DoF

Great effort Daniel.

Sentiments shared - just come off a model shoot and faced the same problems, only I had to be quite close to the action, resorting to using my 16-50 at ISO 800 and still getting subject movement in the shots.

I don't understand fashion shows. Walking stick figures with an outfit someone dreamt up while scratching their ear. Avant-garde. Riiight.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy your pictures. I just wish the models and clothes were... normal.

Thanks.

As I said earlier, your link came from people shooting for the fashion. My approach is to shoot for the models and background - strictly photography.
And no wonder.

I'm sorry to see that knit caps are still in.....(...and that last model is hideous) but, nice series, you did well under the circumstances.

As far as fashion photography is concerned, I have failed deliberately as my stress were on the subject.

Some fashion show (2008 Ryerson University Fashion Class graduation) actually defaced the model to draw attention to the fashion itself. All models were instructed to be expressionless too.









Here is a good case in last year. I was shooting in a low low end so-called fashion show with zero regard for taste.



Those poor models went in for the exposure. The models paid for and did their own make up.

Yet I turned around and ignored completely their fashion. And I think I did justice by focusing on the models herself – and this particular model rightfully deserves that.

I would say that you got some really good ones. Maybe sometimes you could have gone higher than Iso 800 on your K20

K20D noise performance is pretty decent. As the background is a lot less lighted up than the catwalk, my experience is that the noise would have been more noticeable.
