Creative and Over The Top 5 Fashion Photography Handles to follow on Instagram
At times when photography and selfies have become an essential and quite non-eccentric activity of our daily lives, how can students pursuing photography course, declutter the visual feeds on Instagram and craft a mark for themselves? One way is to be inspired and explorative.
While many social media handles are instrumental in introducing opportunities and help students showcase their talent to the world, Instagram is edging up to be the new go-to for display of the latest, fashion photography trends.
Ask a lot of young and developing photography artists, as to what field they want to get into, and you will often be met with the same response – Fashion photography. The lure of working with the trendiest stars, clothing and accessories is magnetic. What started as a tool for selling and promoting products, fashion photography has grown to what we know it to be today – a world of its own that reflects attitudes, stories, and lifestyles.
Identifying this gap and the needs to develop the skills in this profession, JD Institute of Fashion Technology offers Diploma in Fashion Photography Course, which helps students hone their creative talents at par with professionals out there during a short span of time.
