Fashion in the Street Chicago 2013

The Fashion in the Street Chicago was a fun fashion event held at the corner of Dearborn and Polk in the South Loop. There were booths for food and, of course, fashion accessories. And the runway event highlighted the clothes and accessories by different designers.

I was able to witness, and photograph, 3 such runway shows. The ladies were lovely and admirable, especially on the second day of the event when we had temperatures in the 50s with isolated showers in the forecast.

I had such a grand time. For me, one of the thing that I want to get into is fashion photography. And I am glad I was able to photograph the Fashion in the Street!

It took me up to the second runway show of the second day to realize that I should have taken at least two photos of each model: one full-body and one up-close. Yes, I'll get it right next time! This also proves that photography is a continuing learning process: even though this is not my first rodeo in fashion (so to speak), I still learned something of value in this event.

PS: Something strange happened to me while photographing the event. All photographers I saw, even the professional-looking ones, were chimping on their cameras! I got so fed up that, right then and there, I turned off the photo review on my 7D! (I turned of the photo review on my 5DII too.) I know I sound old-school, film-camera throwback something, something. But my point is, those photographers (or people with cameras) missed a lot when they chimped! They were missing a lot of the action because they keep on looking at the back of their camera after - every - shot... Look closely at the photo of the model saluting... If I chimped, I wouldn't have made that shot! So, don't chimp!)
