We’ve talked about big photographers and about their famous fashion shootings on magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. However, there are other types of fashion shootings which are addressed to a larger public.
The shootings appearing in fashion magazines are available only for a narrow public, that of the men and women who buy those magazines. On the other side we have shootings who can be seen by everyone only whit a click of the mouse : I am talking about photographs on Flickr.
http://www.flickr.com/ is an internet side where you can share your photographs and everyone, all over the world, can see them. Today it has a library in continue growth, with seven milions of users, posting more than two thousand photos every minute.
If you visit this site and search ” Fashion photography ” or ” Fashion shooting ” you will find thousand of albums from different authors , full of amateur fashion photographs. Some of these shoots are taken in the streets and show real life but they are particularly interesting for thier fashion details ; some others are real fashion shootings, with posed models and a clear attention to composition.
Unfortunately, I cannot post examples of these images on this blog but I can write down the link of some of the most significative photographs I have found.
