Photography Final Project

I can’t believe I’m already posting my FINAL project for fashion photography. All I have left of this semester is a weekend in Florence and a week of finals. I’ll be back in America in TEN DAYS. Soooo bittersweet. I’ve had the best 3 months of my life and it’s killing me that I have to leave so soon but I can’t wait to get back home at the same time. Well, here’s my fashion photography final project. I’m pretty excited about it. It’s my first photoshoot that I produced by myself start to finish- from concept to setting up equipment to editing. I had a model sent to me from an Italian model agency which was awesome. She didn’t speak any English, and (although I try) I don’t understand much Italian so it was definitely an interesting shoot.  Here it is!

Florence Street Style

My fashion photography class weekly assignment is to roam around Florence, scouting the streets for impeccable style. The first week I was too nervous to approach people so I stuck with snapping some creeper shots. Last week I finally brought myself to ask a fabulously dressed woman if I could take her picture. She was flattered and happily accepted. After taking her picture I was on a roll. My first day of shooting street style not one single person declined. Many did not understand me at first but once they heard “fashion photography” they all understand my inquiry. I had so much fun with my photoshoot last week I could not wait to shoot again this week. It’s so much fun meeting new people and communicating with people who speak very little English.  Here are some of my favorite shots from my first two Street Style photoshoots:

I hope to be half as fabulous as this lady some day.

Paparazziiiii

I had my first day of Fashion Photography class today. It’s waaaay more advanced then I thought it would be so it’s definitly going to be a challenging course, but I’m still going to love it. We went out for a test shoot in Piazza Santa Croce which is just down the street from my classroom. We had to test different F Stops and aperatures and speeds. I learned more about my camera today then I have in the 3 years that I’ve had it.

So basically we walked around being paparazzi for an hour…here are some of my favorite shots from today:
