I don't even need to see the rest of that image; when I scrolled down I got to the bottom of her neck, froze in my tracks and declared HOLY ****. She absolutely frakkin' NAILED that face. I don't even care about the rest of it.
I'm guessing you like that one, huh?
Haha seriously, thanks man, glad you like!
As for the fashion set, well, my definition of fashion (in particular editorial fashion) has changed over the years. When I first started, it was "girl in a black dress" (thank goodness that's changed). Later, as I started to look through a bunch (bunch bunch bunch) of fashion magazines -- particularly the off-the-beaten-path ones, the non-Elles and non-Vogues (exempting Italian Vogue which I love
) -- what I was noticing was that with quite a few of these, the clothes seemed almost secondary, in a way. Like they were used to create a fantasy ("If I buy the clothes she's wearing I'll look like the model in these photos/feel the way I feel when I look at these pictures/etc., etc.") -- and that
, in turn, sells the clothes.
Sooooo, anyways, how I define fashion photography these days (that's editorial fashion) is "photography that creates a fantasy that the clothes help create, which in turn sells the clothes". If that makes any sense at all.
Now -- and geez I'm long-winded for me tonight -- I wasn't shooting an editorial per se when I shot these. We were just messin' around. But, if I came up with a theme that fit this style, I could see myself shooting an editorial story similar to this.
Now having said all that, all I can think to say is thanks, glad you like the shots.
