*an afternoon of fashion photography with tracy aiguier at the MFA*

i seem to be hanging out at the museum of fine arts a lot lately, huh?  don’t you know? in terms of events & exhibits related to fashion, it’s the place to be!  hahaha!!!

this time, i was invited back to watch a photography demonstration given by tracy aiguier, one of boston’s best fashion photographers!  now, being a personal style blogger, my daily outfit photos are important to me & i’ve definitely been more interested in the technical aspects of image capturing over the years…everything from just getting better cameras to learning more how to manipulate the different modes on the camera to achieve the effect i want.  however, that still makes me *far* from any type of real photographer…like tracy.

i honestly didn’t know what to expect from this demonstration.  utilizing 2 models & 4 different looks/outfits…tracy showed us different lighting conditions & basically her thinking process on how to achieve the shot she wants.  even though i would never use this type of studio space or have lights like these (check out the huuuuuuge profoto parabolic light that’s twice as tall as tracy!), it was all fascinating to watch, and i was able to take away some tips & tricks that i will try to implement the next time i pick up a camera :)

i’ll be honest too…i just thought the models were super pretty & their outfits, i would totally wear all of the clothing.  the cut away back LBD with interesting poufy shoulder detail (you know i loves me some poufy sleeves!) was even modeled by school of fashion design student, sherika pitsch, who designed the dress herself!  i myself got caught up in analyzing the models, their best angles, how best to showcase their outfits, etc.  plus, joking & smoking with my photog buddy blogger, smita, made the interactive demonstration that much more fun!

if you’re a photographer, blogger or just someone who is interested in either fashion or photography, i highly recommend attending this demonstration.  you have one more chance as tracy will be at the MFA again wednesday, nov. 14 from 5:30 - 8:00 pm.  so go! learn!  enjoy!  and don’t forget your camera :)
