Caribbean Fashion Week 2008
Barbados Manufacturers' Exhibition
Sherbourne Conference Centre
9 - 12 May, 2008
Series: BMEX 2008
The fashion show at BMEX 2008 was the highlight of the nights. It was a taste of Caribbean Fashion Week 2008. The drinks wee flowing and the finger food was abundant. Music filled the air, with all the haves and have-nots mingling together.
Well my booth was done for the day and I meandered to the lower floor to watch the fashion show. Armed with my trusted D70s with a Nikon 600 Speed-light, I shot the show. The light was low as you might know. With my slow ass camera I did the best I could. Fashion photography requires a fast camera. The composition may have been ok, but the color and lighting was terrible with most of the images.
I am not a fashion photographer like Laretta Houston or James Dawson, by no stretch of the imagination. Secretly my heart wants to get into that type of photography. Maybe someday I could work with one or both of the photographers mentioned.
So for Caribbean Fashion Week 2008 I did my little thing. The only negative, the show was too short. Enjoy my blend of fashion Photography.
