Tips for publishing your first fashion editorial

How would you feel when you walk across a book stall/stand and come across a magazine with pictures shot by you on it? It’s a very common thing for fashion photographers to want to have them published in magazines. Getting published in a fashion magazine is extremely rewarding, but it is no easy task, especially when getting started. If you’re a fashion photographer, you have probably been in that usual situation in which you have to arrange an editorial shoot all by yourself. This can be really empowering, fun and creative, but also extremely difficult. Arranging a shoot not only takes a lot of planning but also you need a team which will help you in the process of shooting and getting published. Here are some tips to get you through publishing your first editorial shoot.

Review - Panasonic GH5

The Panasonic GH5 was a long-awaited camera after the success of GH4. The GH5 just picks it up where the GH4 left off. For a mirrorless camera, most of the times, the expectations are usually not high as they are from DSLRs, but the GH5 makes its intentions clear by putting forward a host of features and some incredible performance out of the camera to settle any doubts one might have for the camera. Panasonic has created the GH5 for all types of use, but the film and video features sets it apart from any other camera available in the market right now. The GH5 was overwhelmingly received by filmmakers and videographers all over the world. We put it through the paces to see how it performed.

The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD was launched recently in India and is the company’s evolution from the 16-300mm F3.5/5.6.
