The Little Slide Dress by Emily Steel is a geeky photographic take on the classic litte black dress. Created using strips of slide film, the dress also features LED lights that automatically provide a proper amount of illumination based on ambient lighting. When in a bright room, the lights turn off and cause the dress to look like a shiny black dress. When the lights go down, the dress lights up and turns you into a walking lightbox.
Back in 2010, San Diego-based photographer Adam Elmakias launched a
geeky fashionable line of gel bracelets based on various lenses. The Lens Bracelets took the web by storm, and now Elmakias is back with a new and improved “pro series” lineup of bracelets that are much more faithful representations of actual lenses by Canon, Nikon, Leica, and Zeiss. The new bracelets are based off $25K+ worth of popular cameras lenses, and are more detailed and more durable than the previous version.
Canadian fashion model Coco Rocha is quite talented at “freestyling” poses, or doing a bunch of useable poses off the top of her head in rapid succession. Last year a video showing Rocha doing 50 poses in 30 seconds went viral on the web. The video above shows her doing 19 “action poses” in just 30 seconds for a fashion cover shoot. Who knew modeling required so much cardio?
Fashion photographs are generally shot to make the clothing and the models look attractive, but British photographer Neil Bedford chose not to go that route when shooting a series for clothing label Neighborhood‘s lookbook. He had his models press their faces against invisible panes of glass, resulting in quirky and humorous fashion photos featuring smeared faces.
London-based advertising and art photographer Atton Conrad does some pretty interesting mixing of fashion and light painting photography. He has done a number of images for magazines and ad campaigns that feature models wearing dresses manufactured from light rather than fabric. For each fo the images, Conrad paints the dress around the model in a blacked-out studio while remotely triggering the camera.
“Doggie Style” is a cute series of fashion photos shot by photographer Emily Shur for Paper Magazine. They’re pretty different from ordinary fashion photos: Shur had her human models face backwards while holding dogs facing forwards. She writes,
This shoot was presented to me with this image of my husband and The Baroness as the impetus and inspiration. A lot of these dogs belong to friends. Some I found via friends. All in all it was such a funny day and shoot. I loved it… even when one dog, who will remain unnamed, peed on my softbox.
