If you are yet undecided, study the work of other renowned fashion photographers, you will definitely get motivation to start your work.
FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY Zlata is originally from Russia, and lives in the DC area. She danced for ten years, and her work included jazz and modern dance. Souleye comments about her: "She is very comfortable in front of the camera." Dannielle Lind is an experienced model who lives and works in Northern Virginia. The types of images she enjoys modeling for include: fashion, editorial, and beauty. Lucie Starz is a petite model of Vietnamese origin who grew up in the U.S., and now lives and works in Vienna, Virginia. "She is well known in the DC circuit, since she's modeled for most photographers," says Souleye.
The bottom two are Esther and Ann. Tyra tells Ann that it's amazing that she had best picture five weeks in a row, but that being a top model is not just about photos, but about speaking and presenting yourself, and the judges question her capability to do that. Esther's pictures are beautiful and edgy, interesting and commercial at the same time. They feel that she really needs to work on her personality. Tyra said the judges think she's a bit blah. So, who goes home? Esther will be leaving this week.
FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY The most common types of backdrops used by photographers today are either made of paper or a cotton material called muslin. Paper backdrops are usually packaged on rolls for easy storage. While the widths of these rolls vary, the lengths are typically quite long. This allows the backdrop to cover a large amount of space without using more than one piece. For this reason, they are often referred to as "seamless backdrops" (or simply, "seamless"). Paper backdrops are available in a wide array of colors.
Cat Eye sunglasses - Prada, the king of the fashion world, reintroduces the Cat Eye sunglasses. The Cat Eye sunglasses were the trend of the '50s (Breakfast at Tiffany's) and needless to say the glasses are in the shape of cat eye and suit the best on square and heart shaped faces. This trend of 2011, is already making news in the market and is available in various different shades to suit your style statement.
You should also get some professional images to promote yourself. Find a photographer who has extensive experience in FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY. Use these images to build a portfolio, a comp card and maybe even a website with your contact details. You can also register with online modelling communities and then direct any interest towards your online modelling profiles.
For a start, you need to get a camera. Here I am going to assume you want to go digital and so this will be a DSLR (digital single lens reflex camera) (You want to stay away from a Point and Shoot because you want a camera that has advanced features and allows you some setting control). You will need a lens or two, depending on what kind of photography you like to do, plus protective ens filters to go with the lens. You should also get a good tripod, a camera bag or backpack and a lens cleaning kit. This completes the basic equipment to get you started.
