Great fashion photography reflects and shapes the era in which it is made, from wartime to economic booms, fashion design and the imagery that defines it have shown us where our boundaries lie and how we seek to embrace or break them. A fashion photograph is about lifestyle, desire, fantasy, sensuality, and, unavoidably, the state of commerce. It is about wanting to be the person inside the clothes, or wanting to have one’s life shown within the image. It is also about identity, subculture, and the desire to belong. If you are a student, aspiring photographer, or working professional, building a fashion portfolio that aspires to this standard can be daunting. Thomas Werner, author of the book, The Fashion Image, shares his insight into each of these aspects of fashion and the ways in which you can create innovative shoot concepts to help you achieve your goals.

In this B&H Event Space video, Jem Schofield, founder of the production company and educational resource the C47, walks you through the challenges of and effective solutions to film production as a solo endeavor or with a small crew. While film production equipment has gotten better and less expensive in recent years, the size of film crews have shrank. Companies are building small in-house production teams to create ongoing and high-quality content for their web and social media outlets, and corporate video production companies have also changed in terms of their structure and resources. Most significant, clients expect higher quality content for the same or less money. In addition to demonstrating specific equipment ideally suited to smaller crew production, including companies such as Triad-Orbit (T-O), for lighting / audio support and grip solutions, and Westcott for lighting and light shaping tools, Schofield discusses the big picture of modern digital camera systems from a technical standpoint. He addresses the realities of production from today into the future, focusing on the tough transitions from standard resolution to full HD to 4K acquisition, post and delivery. After watching, you’ll have a better grasp of how to seek out solutions, as well as how to be more efficient on set when working alone or with a smaller crew.

About a year ago top fashion and lifestyle photographer Dixie Dixon created a personal wishlist for what the specs of her dream camera would be, and once she got to use the amazing, new Nikon D850 DSLR she realized it has every single capability she had wished for. She has never been more excited about a new camera! The 45.7 megapixels which allow a wide flexibility in cropping, combined with the auto focusing system, the blazing fast 7FPS, the touch screen, the gorgeous skin tones, and the overall image quality that can only be described as spectacular all allow this photographer to express her vision. Dixie says, "The D850 is the best of both worlds: Image quality and the look of medium format when I want it." In this video, Dixie will give you not only her first impressions, but also show some of the images full of beauty, personality and soul that she has already been able to create with this powerful new tool. ► Dixie Dixon's Video and Photo Work https://vimeo.com/dixiedixon/ https://www.instagram.com/iamdixiedixon/ https://www.dixiedixon.com/

A photographer's light is our language; we tell our stories with light. So understanding and controlling that light is very important. However, as soon as we master our light... What’s the next step?  This is where most photo shoots go wrong. In this jam-packed and fun two-hour seminar, Fashion/Celebrity photographer Frank Doorhof guides you through many tips that will make your photo shoot go from OK to WOW without breaking the bank. Doorhof talks about using light more creatively, using props, but most of all, how to style your sessions and coach the models to get that one expression and tell that story that will make your shots stand out. Doorhof has a wide area of expertise, ranging from model to street/travel photography, and he specializes in teaching. He  is a KelbyOne instructor, X-rite colorati, Adobe Influencer, DxO image master and has recently been added to the top 100 of most social-media-influential photographers in the world. His book,  “Mastering the Model Shoot,”  has reached bestseller status and is, according to many, one of the best books on the subject. This seminar was based, in part, on that book so if you’re into model/people photography, you can’t afford to miss this video. About Frank Doorhof Both photography and teaching have been in Doorhof’s blood from a very young age. He has released a book called "A Guide to Model Photography,” and nine instructional DVDs, which are sold worldwide. In the studio in Emmeloord, Netherlands, Doorhof teaches workshops on a weekly basis, but he also teaches workshops in other countries, sometimes for manufacturers but also for groups of photographers. In 2010, he was the first European photographer to join Kelby training, a group of the world's best instructors in both photography and retouching. Doorhof shoots mainly with medium format digital cameras—at this moment, a Leaf digital back connected to a Mamiya RZ67ProII, for studio work, and a Phase One DF camera with Leaf back for location work. For sports and other areas of photography that are difficult to shoot with medium format, he uses canon DSLRs. Although Doorhof loves digital photography, he rediscovered analog photography when he switched to medium format, and is shooting film with the RZ67ProII. The scans from the 6 × 7 negatives/slides have a certain look you can’t get with digital cameras, and medium format system film and the digital format are easily combined.

The dawn of a new era is upon us.  For more than 100 years, camera companies have been trying to squeeze the best specs into the smallest available formats. Smartphones and point-and-shoot cameras are too limiting, and digital SLRs are too bulky. Enter the Mirrorless Generation. Now, we can pack big image quality into a small, travel-friendly package. Whether you are looking for a new camera or one to complement your existing system, Gabriel Biderman will help you wade through the latest crop of mirrorless cameras. With some companies offering up to five levels of mirrorless cameras, we will focus on the higher-end ones that Biderman feels can replace your DSLR—in most situations.
