Fashion Show by college Students

Fashion Show by college Students
My experience as a spectator of fashion show beyond the frame of Fashion-TV was zero. Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, Fall Winter collection, Summer collection etc always sounded too glossy for my ears to ever wish to attend a live fashion show (here I mean local ones of course). But last weekend when I heard of an inter-college talent hunt show which also comprised a fashion show, I thought of paying a visit with my camera. What's wrong in trying fashion photography?
Fashion Show by college Students
Models who participated in that fashion event were students from various colleges of Haldia. Usually in a real fashion show, models exhibit attires designed by fashion designers. Here, participating students were not just catwalk models but also fashion designers and sponsors of their own clothes. Despite any grooming session and prior experience in the glamorous fashion field most of the models performed fairly well and few of them were exceptionally fluid on the stage!

Before the show had began I hauled myself diagonally in front of the ramp. Finding a place straight in front of the stage would have been ideal for photographing models but it was simply not feasible. It was my first attempt on fashion photography and I had no idea of settings which usually work in such myriad and complex lighting conditions. Trial and error was the only door open to me. Definitely, using the point and shoot camera was out of the equation.

To freeze those dynamic models I had to bump up the the ISO (to 1600) to get the desired shutter speed (around and above 1/160 sec). Shots were pretty grainy (full of noise) but I guess they are acceptable for casual use. May be a dedicated prime lens would have done justice to such event. Who cares when I'm a happy point and shooter! I'll keep posting photos of more of such gorgeous amateur models rocking that ramp. Won't you bother to check back?
