I’ve been trying to shoot a fashion shoot, but I’m not sure if this is fashion enough. I don’t understand what fashion is, I think this is fashion to me but may not be to others. Anyway, this was shot at our backyard as you can see from the pictures, it might not be the best but you know I’m just starting. I’m not the best when it comes to posing the models, I have no idea how to make them pose.
It’s not the best but not bad, in my opinion. What do you think I can do to improve this shot? Lighting? Posing? I’m sure that lighting is a problem since my flash is not cooperating with me and as for the pose well, let’s leave that to the model. 😀

But a beautiful photograph with a name is worth more,” said Testino.
