“I’ve attended the Runway Photo Workshop during the menswear fashion week, a more “relaxed” fashion week compared to the womenswear one, and more available for those who, like me, are approaching fashion photography for the first time. The experience has been absolutely outstanding and interesting because, contrary to those workshops that are experienced far from the places where the action happens, in this case you work in the field, shoulder to shoulder with those professionals who have been working within the field for years, or even for decades. I suggest this workshop to those who want to develop their capacity of taking precise pictures quikly. Infact the post-production process is very little in this particular case. The framing, the exposure and the model’s figure have to be perfect and caught in few fractions of a second. I’ve learnt a lot. Respect for the professionals who work within this niche field!.
