Film Club and Fashion Club host fashion photography workshop

By Louis Gitu and Siham Mahat

On Friday, November 11, 2022, Film Club and Fashion Club partnered organized a Fashion Photography Workshop. The aim of the workshop was to teach interested students on the basics of doing a fashion photography shoot. The workshop was held at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Opening remarks were given by Louis Gitu (Film Club Chair) and Siham Mahat (Film Club Secretary and Fashion Club Vice-Chair) to start off the event. Moderated by Siham Mahat, the discussion featured three panelists: Savannah Kagiri, Franklin Rashid, and Chienjo Omondi.

Savannah Kagiri started off with giving the basic settings of a camera with regards to light i.e. how to use the ISO (International Organization for Standardization), Shutter speed and the f-stop. This was to teach the students how to set the camera to capture pictures with the best light for the shoot. Next, Franklin talked about working with human subjects. How to build rapport and best instruct them on what to do to get the best pictures out of them. Lastly, Chienjo discussed the fundamentals of fashion photography. This included how to make mood boards before the shoot and how to choose the colour palette that will best compliment and contrast each other in frame.

After the talk and Q&A session was over, cameras were distributed and the students got a chance to practice what they had learnt on each other. They took various pictures under the supervision of the 3 panelists.

Overall, the event was a success and both clubs look forward to having more informative workshops like this one.
