Flipping through the glossy pages of magazines, how many images do you see of fashion and products being sold? What do you think of when you hear the word “fashion”? Chances are, images of catwalks, models, and couture clothing fill your head, but fashion is so much more. Fashion photography has been around since the advent of the camera. Fashion, like photography, is an ever-changing and evolving art form. There are many different types of fashion in America alone, leaving this assignment very broad.
Artists to consider: Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle, Mario Testino, Ellen Von Unwerth
Brands to consider: Forever 21, GQ, Free People, Louis Vuitton
Your assignment is to submit 3 fashion photos and 3 product photos that could be printed in a magazine. You will mount two on board and put two on the back. You will be printing 2-8x12 prints and mounting on black board. This is your FINAL so show us everything that you’ve learned throughout the year. This project is a culmination of your EXCELLENT photography skills. Be sure to place BOTH photographs in the Google Drive folder before the day of the final. You may print both images in the classroom but it is your responsibility to have them both printed and mounted by the exam day. If you cannot make it to the printer then you may print them at CVS or another photo lab. During the exam day, you will write a written reflection.
