Fashion on a phone: Our spring issue fashion shoot photographed on the new Samsung Galaxy S6
Thu Jul 2 2015
by Steven Fernandez
We recently set ourselves a little challenge…
Since more and more people seem to be photographing themselves and staging photoshoots on their phones, we set out to see if we could do an actual fashion shoot using only mobile phones!
The challenge was more than just taking ‘good photos’. We set out to take print worthy images, the best of which will appear in the next edition of Remix
We brought in the dream team, which included photographer extraordinaire Karen Ishiguro to shoot the pics and stylish fashion editor Amber Peebles to dress the mods.
Then we had to pick an equally dreamy mobile phone. We decided to go with the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6
and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge
, which have just been released in a beautiful blue topaz and gorgeous green emerald respectively.
We didn’t choose the mobile phones just because of their colours (even though they are soooooo pretty). We chose them because they have cameras capable of shooting print quality images – high-resolution shots suitable for publication in Remix
The Samsung S6 and S6 edge feature an improved front camera, which now offers a 5MP resolution and 43% more pixels than the S5, offering amazing picture quality for the all-important selfie . For our photographer Karen (and you budding photographers out there), the camera also has a Pro mode, which offers a range of manual controls, including ISO, exposure compensation and white balance. The camera features real-time HDR and multi-frame low light modes, so your photos will look effortlessly perfect and professional under any light.
As you can see, it was a no brainer! Find out more about the Samsung S6 and S6 Edge capabilities here
Then without further ado, check out our fashion shoot below! As you can see we stuck to a blue and green colour palette, perfect for spring and also matching the two new phones we shot them on.
Tell us your favourite images in the caption below, because we’ll selecting four to make the pages of our September issue of Remix.
If your four pics make the pages of the magazine you might just find yourself with a brand new Samsung S6 or S6 Edge yourself!
