Lately I've been really into the artistic direction side of shooting fashion. I'm always thinking about creative outfits, backdrops and angles. I guess all the design stuff Angie is always babbling about is finally rubbing off on me.
I edited all of these myself with Windows Live Photo Gallery. It's nothing fancy but I love playing with the color, exposure and lighting to bend the reality of the photo. The last few remind me of something Andy Warhol would do.
Since we're talking about the creative processes of the fashion world, here are some fashion books to check out:
