Here is a fashion show held recently in KLCC,
Neo, were you there?
Usually, in this kind of event, the people who occupy the ‘prime locations’ are the shutterbugs rather than the potential shoppers.
I also shot fashion show a couple of times, but have since lost interest in it. Why?
First, with a dozen of cameras pointing at the model, it is too crowded. I have to take position 10 minutes before the show begins, or I will be blocked by the crowd. Look at the picture shown below. The white object at the bottom of the picture is probably another photographer’s hand. (I am not too sure!)
Secondly, I am not happy with the models’ facial expression. While most of them are good-looking, catwalk models are emotionless animals which hardly smile. Or they are fierce-looking as if we owe them money…
I suspect catwalk models have their own Bible, which tells them what to do and what to avoid. One of their commandments must be:
Thou shalt not smile.
I think I would rather spend some money to join a portrait photography class.
