Fashion photography is not something I have ever had an interest in doing, but looking at it is different. It is a fascinating world.
Okay, I’m going to admit I have watched most seasons of America’s Next Top Model. I never watched the whole episode, but I loved the photoshoots. It was fascinating to see how the images were created and how much work went into them.
For this post, I spent a lot of time looking at videos, as I said it is a fascinating area. There are a lot of videos on YouTube about this subject.
It doesn’t really matter what sort of photography you look at you can always learn something.
For this post, I found one long video that looks at a particular photographer, Peter Lindbergh and his work. To finish it off I found 3 short videos looking at behind the scenes. One of them I have seen before, but the other two not.
Here they are.
A fashion photographer who has photographed a lot of famous models and actors. He liked to photograph them in a way that was really different from what many others were doing.
This video is the story about him really.
He died early September 2019 and this a great look at this life and the work he leaves behind.
Here is Peter Lindbergh when he was photographing Greta Thunberg, the teenager who is making waves around the world about climate change.
Behind the scenes
Following are the shorter videos that look more behind the scenes and how the images are created.
We take a look at what Mark Newton does as he prepares and shoots. See how he handles light.
I first saw this video a while back. It is interesting to see them getting ready, then taking the images and the final ones.
This video is kind of an advertisement for the camera, but it does also give you some great behind the scenes look at a fashion with the photographer Miss Aniela.
