New trend alert: Eric Wilson of the New York Times reports that fashion shows are starting to have built-in “Instagram moments,” in which models stop to pose for unofficial Instagram snaps:
[...] runway shows are hard to photograph, especially from the sidelines using a cellphone. A lot of people miss the shows entirely, so focused are they on taking pictures that are almost always out of focus. It all becomes a blur.
At the end of Prabal Gurung’s show this afternoon, however, all of the models walked onto the runway and stopped, each one taking a position under a spotlight and standing there for several seconds, offering an opportunity for editors to get a good shot. The same thing happened at the Creatures of the Wind show on Thursday. Call it the Instagram moment.

Earlier this week, we wrote about a unique fashion show put on in NYC by DVF that extensively featured Google’s Project Glass camera glasses. Google released a video today that provides an interesting look at the show, as recorded by various people wearing the devices.
Experience the DVF Spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week through the eyes of the people who made it happen—the stylists, the models and Diane von Furstenberg herself. All the footage you see here was filmed using only Glass, Google’s latest technology that lets you capture moments from a unique, new perspective. See what happens when fashion and technology come together like you’ve never seen before.
It’s interesting seeing what goes on behind the scenes at a fashion show, especially from the diverse perspectives see in this video (glasses were given to everyone from the designer herself to the cameramen at the back of the runway room).
Maho Beach outside of Princess Juliana International Airport in Sint Maarten is famous for the fact that landing airplanes fly overhead at minimal altitude. It’s one of the only places in the world where airplanes can be viewed in their flightpath just outside the end of the runway, and therefore is very popular with tourists and plane spotters. Austrian photographer Josef Hoflehner has a project titled “Jet Airliner” that consists of photos of massive jet airliners hovering over the heads of sunbathers on the beach.
Here’s an interesting behind-the-scenes video that shows what a workday is like for fashion photographer Peter Stigter.
It’s a hectic job, being a runway photographer. Racing through the city, meeting editors, dragging your box up and down the stairs, getting you equipment ready. And then, finally the show starts. Suddenly everything becomes quiet.
It’d be awesome if every professional photographer made a video like this to give people a glimpse into their lives. If you know of any similar videos for other photographers, link us to them in the comments!
