Top 50 Fashion Photography Trends in September

From Disco Beauty Portraits to Real Model Covers

— September 30, 2015 — Top Lists
These September 2015 fashion photography trends range from cinematic model portraits to modernist beauty shoots that feature artistic makeup applications. Bringing dramatic themes to life, these editorial examples enhance mood and bring a visual theme to life with chromatic light filters and imaginative wardrobe picks.

Experimenting with both vintage and contemporary elements, photographers are capturing candid imagery with heightened visual effects -- the Harper's Bazaar 'Icons' issue features singer Katy Perry and other celebs that are made over to channel famed pop culture icons and recognizable art subjects.

When it comes to subtle imagery, these September 2015 fashion photography picks also include understated magazine stories and features that highlight minimal makeup, simple wardrobe picks and little to no visual effects. These examples depict realism and are focused on promoting attainable beauty ideals. Some standouts include non-model magazine covers that spotlight real people along with candid urban portraits that capture the spontaneity of today's youth.
