These pictures turn up in every magazine from Vogue to Seventeen. Where women and men tear through the pages to see what is about to hit the streets in terms of fashion. While the clothes are always the center piece the accessories may also take center stage.
Watches, jewelry, you name it and someone is trying to sell it with fashion photography. This makes it a bit intriguing as the new styles come out, because in addition to the new clothing line, the watch lines and the jewelry line are out in force also.
It is also the trend for designers to have some affect on the world of makeup and hair. Everything that has anything to do with appearance can and will be affected by fashion photography and this does not even begin to explain the affect of fashion photography on the human body.
As trends in what is considered the best body type change, so do the models used in fashion photography, and this then translates to how people especially women see themselves. So it becomes easy to see how much affect fashion photography has on the world.
If it was not for fashion photography how would anyone know what is in and what is out? Important decisions are made daily based on these fashion photographs, the ones in the magazines, and do not worry, because everything involved in fashion photography does not always have to do with cutting edge style and sensibilities.
Designers spend a lot of time creating the most beautiful clothes in the world and the fashion models bring them to life, but the photographers turn them into art, and in some cases this fashion photography can transcend even art.
The next time you are flipping through the pages of a fashion magazine, stop and really look at the photographs, you may discover something you did not see with a quick glance, you may be truly looking at art.
Do not forget that setting the mood and getting the correct pose is not all there is to fashion photography, once the pictures are taken the photographer then must work his or her magic in the editing room, so that every fashion picture you see in a magazine is flawless and wonderful.
Fashion photography probably started as a way to sell clothes and maybe even just record history. Today this art form has been transformed into so much more than just pictures in a magazine. We have got to try and not take fashion photography for granted.
