One of the benefits of fashion photography is that the photographer has more freedom to be creative with lighting, posing, angles, and composition than a portrait or lifestyle photographer. I encourage my students to learn how to emulate images that they appreciate with consideration for lighting, angles, posing and composition and to make deliberate decisions regarding those elements. I also encourage the spontaneity that makes fashion photography exciting. I am a firm believer in completing the assignment and then going beyond expectations to create something new and magical.
