Fashion Night Out and Photography!

Posted by on September 9, 2012

Last Thursday night was Fashion Night Out.  Last year I heard how awesome it was out in Beverly Hills, and was truly bummed that I missed all the fun so this year I made sure to make it out to an event.

LA has a lot of events, and the hard part was deciding where I wanted to spend my evening.  I chose Santa Monica, it was a chance for me to walk along 3rd street promenade, and browse through the shops to see the latest fashion trends, and possibly pick up a few outfits too (which I did!)

But, one thing, I was unprepared for was capturing the most out of the fashion show.  It was at night, it was outdoors, and it involved movement, and of course, I lacked a tripod.

Needless to say, I captured some photographs, but I am not happy with the pictures.   The pictures are far too grainy for my liking, and I was really struggling like that night as a photographer.

But because it was my first official fashion show I wanted to make sure I captured what I could.

So I’m going to leave you with some of my favorite outfits of the night:

Bloomingdales Collection

To start things off for the evening, Bloomingdales showed us their fall collection.

I was impressed they even had men in the show…. but I was struggling with some of them.  They were walking too fast or were hardly posing ;)

Outfit from True Religion.  They definitely had the attitude with these outfits for the evening, and I loved it.

I fell completely in love with the Johnny Was outfits, and this is a new store I must check out.  Their flowing dresses and outfits had my name all over it.

It’s still pretty surreal to me that Kitson sells clothes because when I’m in there I’m always looking through the books and the fun stuff they have around.

White House Black Market always have some beautiful clothes.

I had never heard of G Star Rail prior to this evening.  What do you think of the outfits above?

This beautiful dress by Kenneth Cole has femininity written all over it.

Nordstroms was by far my favorite collection of the evening as they were rocking the sweater dresses.  The purple dress above was my favorite outfit of the evening.  I’m just not sure if I could pull it off.

What did you think of the collections?  Did you see any favorites?

    Honestly— I have never used a tripod to shoot a fashion show. Frankly, if you are a blogger and aren’t attending a show as a dedicated photog, you do shoot from the audience and with your camera in hand. It definitely is something you have to get used to….

    Glad you got to experience your first FNO

    I think your pics are great. I like the black and white affect ones. It looks overall like the looks for the Fashion Night out skewed pretty young?

    I don’t think a tripod is a good thing to take to shows especially with all the hustle and bustle going on. It is best to travel to shows with just a camera in hand. The pictures aren’t bad. At least the ones you have posted. I am also sure that with time, a few more shows, and a little practice you will be a fashion show photo pro.
