I'm excited to share some of the photographers that I admire. This was originally a class assignment was not a challenge for me as I find a lot of photographers inspiring.
The interesting thing with this assignment is that I realized that I follow soooo many people and I really don't know any of them or even their names but I just follow them because they leave me feeling inspired. (Lots more linked at the bottom & there could be many more. Although at the bottom they aren't all fashion photographers).
image 1: Like the art that is drawn in the models face and seeing all the blues in color but also emotion.
Image 2: This photo is beautiful art. Love how you can see the form and outline of this lady's body but it doesn't show too much. She looks to be confident and real.
image 3: Love this photo. The model is looking into a mirror. I believe to get this shot and I like the dimensions that this brings. It looks as though she is entering a much cooler reality then the one we see everyday. Also a big fan of the color pink.
image 4: Love the texture in the wavy hair paired with this ultra chunky knit sweater. The colors and tones in this picture and with the models skin tone look really complimentary to me
image 1: Like that this image is shot through a car window and that it isn't all the way rolled down so you see some intentional blur or haze. I also love all the soft yellow / orange hazy light. Makes me want to go on a road trip.
Image 2: Find this pose to be really interesting. The model was probably like what the heck thinking about were the photographer was probably located to take the picture. I also like the light background with this neutral monochromatic outfit.
image 3: Love the bright lip, really makes the photo interesting and draws your eyes to look at the image longer also like the text overlay for more detail/ contrast.
image 4: Love the strange objects he's holding, reminds me of high fashion.
image 1: Love that you can make a dirty ugly lawn chair look cool in this shot. This photo would be really cool in film too. I also like that the models legs are spread wide so you can see the lines in the skirt and how they are the opposite direction of the chair lines. Simple but pretty.
Image 2: This shot is made by the dress that's elongated and brought up into the corner of the frame. I also like the color hues in the image and think that they compliment each other well.
image 3: The harsh lighting and shadows in this photo are fun. This girl looks like she is on a deserted playground on a summer day. I also like that she is wearing an outfit that you would not play in and it looks very oversized and not functional. All the lines in this shot are interesting.
image 4: I like that this shot has one models head cut off. I think it adds interest to the photo.
Overall I would say that I am a fan of all these fashion photographers first because I am interested in the content that they are shooting. I admire the colors, the details and textures you can see in these styled outfits. I also like these photos I specifically selected because I think that the models are placed in interesting poses/ shapes.
