Meet Me on The Front Row

First of all, a great news: I finally ordered a new camera today! Hopefully it will be here for the weekend...can't wait to play! Having not an "official potographer" I'm also looking for a tripod and I hope to feel brave enough to use it in public (kudos to Sally Jane), taking some self portraits outside. Will see...

Apart from this, I had a look at my inspiration folder today and I found that a lot of my favorites editorials come from a little unconventional fashion magazine, Io Donna, the weekly women's magazine that come on Saturday with the italian newspaper Corriere della Sera. I obviously like the often breathtaking photos of Vogue Italia, but I'm glad to find something smart and creative also in a weekly magazine.

Two times per year, during the Milano Fashion Week, the Io Donna editorials are totally great. Neither a simple showcase for clothes and accessories, nor just a splendid photoshoot where you can't really see anything... They're really fun to look at, like the one below, called Prima Fila (Front Row) from 2005.

Any familiar face...?

Love these! It's a bit of mind trip to see models imitating people who are watching models...

These are brilliant! I wonder if the people they are modelled on would be pleased to see themselves parodied in a magazine. They're very clever!

I just bought a tripod too! & I admit, it takes alot to set up a tripod Yourself & just take pictures outside! I don't really dare to do that yet.

Just got a new Nikon, and it is such a complicated job to use it properly. Sometimes I miss the simple Casio *lol*

Good luck! Can't wait for the new pictures:)

I think Italian newspaper weeklies are much better than normal magazines. D, Io Donna, Style, Ventiquattro, are all great and great inspiration. Not to mention the fact that their content is usually a lot more interesting and unusual than normal magazines, which often cover the same topics so you read about the same thing five times in a month..
