    • historyFashion Photography The genre of fashion photography serves predominantly the exposure of expression. One might think that this genre shows clothing & accessories itself but that stands almost never in the foreground of this craft or isn´t captured in the images at all. It is rather the aesthetic and the emotion that a good image is able to deliver. Some perceive this kind of photography often as being experimental, playful and innovative – some as highly professional in technique and elegant. This field has a variety of exotic examples and in fact, the pursuit of being different and exotic is a main driver that determines a successful fashion photographer. 7
    • The first fashion model was VirginiaOldoini, a noblewoman at the court ofNapoleon the 3rd. The publisher AdolpheBraun released a book of her in the yearof 1856, showing 288 pictures of her inher official court garb.With the development and the abilityto produce pictures on flexible filmand with the advances in halftoneprinting, fashion photography becameimmediately a part of magazines in thefirst decade of the 20th century.The models at that time were usuallyshot in a natural environment, till Adolfde Meyer started to stage his shots,giving them a more unique appearance.In the mids of the century, the focus onfashion photography which was ruledby Europe at the time, shifted to theUnited States, bringing up a new elite ofphotographers.Nevertheless, the European magazinesfound their way into the U.S. too and arestill competing today. *Vogue International 2011

The Next step ofcorrecting and grading could be, totranslate more information about theimage into the Data-Set of the Camera,so that major changes can be made tolightning and shadowing, which is hardlypossible today.Camera Equipment will communicemore in the near future. Every smalldevice can be equiped with an internetconnection. The next step will be, to putthe whole mechanism inside the camera,so that sharing and sending picturesbecomes fast, intuative and available onany place of the world.(Canon is already building a Wi-Fi Model) 16
