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 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:
