What makes a photographer TAKE A PICTURE??? is it the lighting? setting? atmosphere? What? Those beautiful photos that are captured in seconds has always been impressive to me.

Have you ever been to a fashion show, or seen a fashion show on television? Have you ever noticed the models focus while walking down the runway? Sometimes models have to walk in shoes that take plenty of balance, confidence, and focus. Although it may look extremely easy to walk from one end of the runway and back to the beginning of the runway, it is NOT. Walking down the runway can be challenging. The type of outfit and/ or shoes the model will be wearing, and the runway the models will be walking on, can raise the level of complexity for an effective runway walk. On a good note, there are tips and rules to help models successfully RIP THE RUNWAY!
3 Cheers for all of the Fashion Models!!!
Note: This blog and video is not meant to tease nor humiliate Fashion Models in any manner. This blog and video is meant to inform and possibly discuss Runway experiences and/ or thoughts.

If you are in the Arts Field sometimes you may hit a rough patch. Meaning… IN NEED OF INSPIRATION! And a trip to another environment can give you just that. Just so I am clear, you do not necessarily have to travel over five hundred miles to an unfamiliar country (unless you would like too) you can easily step outside into your back yard, or walk a few blocks away from your house. Inspiration can be found anywhere; you just have to spot it. As I said before you do not have to travel to other countries, but in doing so helps you be more versatile. Traveling to other parts of the country may give you insight on different designs or styles. You can incorporate the new designs and styles into your personal creations, in result, attract a bigger more diverse group of people.
Inspiration can be found anywhere. You just have to See It, Retrieve It, and Successfully Use It.
Today fashion seems commercial, or materialistic, and typical. What happened to the INDEPENDENCE, CONFIDENCE, and CREATIVITY? there was a time when wearing simple non-branded sunglasses with confidence was a sense of style. Now, if the garments and/or accessories you have on are not branded, or worth thousands of dollars, then you have no fashion sense. Oh NO! Fashion cannot be taking a detour to commercial city! Lets not forget garments and accessories are designed to complement, NOT define who you are.
Fashion can not be defined with restrictions. But it can be described as individual expression.
