Hi, just back from my second ever fashion show. The show is FS:X and is a charity show run by the St.Andrews univeristy. It was held in the Curtis Fine paper mill which has been empty for years. Was a really great show and i ended up with some interesting pics. The venue was pretty cold which the keen eyed amongst you might notice in some of the pics

Shots were taken with K-7 and tamron 17-50 f2.8 at iso1600.

Having taken hundreds of boring full length shots of each model i got the chance to mess around. Here are some of the ones i like:

Yes, managed to get into photographing last years (FS:9), and was asked back for this years.

I know as much about fashion as W.G.Grace knew about gynaecology but I (think) I can spot a decent photograph and these are terrific, taken I imagine (obviously I have to imagine, never having been allowed near a fashion show) under very demanding circumstances.

Probably a fashion photographer would say they were a little too contrasty and therefore lacking in detail where the clothes themselves are concerned. But I think they're great.

Well done!

Hi, thanks for that.

I have another 300 or so pictures with nice even light and contrast on the clothes as thats what i was asked to do there. The ones i posted are those i thought were interesting rather than useful

Which is almost certainly why I like them so much...

The model in the last photo seems to be concealing something under her dress which is rather distracting! I like the first one although I'd be tempted to clone out the lights or crop it a bit tighter.

nice shots - the expressions to the right of the model in the 5th are great!

Great shots, I like the lighting in some did you also use a flash to fill your shots in a bit and at what focal length is the first one?

Hi, thanks. The first one was shot at 21.9mm. Was using a pretty heavily diffused flash in a few of the shots but i think that all one ones i uploaded are just with the stage lights and some pp to bring back anything too dark/bright.
