Pixahive is back with another exciting photography contest! The theme for the April contest is Fashion Photography.

Wikipedia describes Fashion Photography as a genre of photography which is devoted to displaying clothing and other fashion items. Fashion photography has developed its own aesthetic in which the clothes and fashions are enhanced by the presence of exotic locations or accessories.

What kind of photos can you submit?

  • Catalog Fashion – Similar to product photography with the presence of a model. Focus is on the clothes and accessories.
  • High Fashion – Models in exaggerated poses. Glamorous, sometimes unrealistic wardrobe. Locations, hairstyle and other elements blend together to create a flawless image.
  • Street Fashion – Opposite of high fashion. Shot in a more casual way, sometimes with real people rather than models. The looks are rugged and comfortable. Clothes that people wear everyday.
  • Editorial Fashion – Photographs that tell a story. Found in publications like newspapers and magazines. Often requires elaborate wardrobe and multiple props. The goal is to create a specific mood that tells the story.
