Think I may have posted something very similar before – or it could be on Facebook. Either way this is both curious and interesting: A video on the ever increasing trend in fashion bloggers and photographers.
Obviously there are the very old-school people like Ian Cunningham (see previous post about a film about him) and then more recently it’s been made popular by the likes of The Sartorialist. But it now seems to be exploding!
During London Fashion week I passed a venue where there was a show and there must have been a dozen or so photographers there. Only one or two who looked like pros.
It’s also interesting to see that a couple of people being photographed are rather common in the different situations – as if they in turn follow the photographers!

…. well kind of.
I took some jewellry photos for my friend Ellie a few years ago and as she’s back into it and blogging – has done a blog about yours truly – Check out Ellie’s Jewellery blog here.
Lighting stuff like jewellery can be tricky. Stuff you have to keep an eye on:
- White Balance – be sure everything is of the right colour. A Grey card helps.
- White background is light, but
- Silver Jewellery is still visible and shinning, or
- If on Black – contrast is sufficient.
- You don’t see obvious light source reflections (soften them using something like a light tent).
- You don’t see reflections of yourself/kit/room
Will do a post about it and light tents etc sometime, but this is just a quickie for now.
Oh and go buy Ellie’s lovely enamel/silver jewellery. (My sister has had one of her necklaces in the past 🙂 )
