When predicting what’s going to shape up the year 2017, it’s important to look back at some of the trends that shaped up the previous year to forecast if they will still dominate or drop out. Here are just a few trends to look out for in 2017:
The minimalist fashion photography
Street wear is shaping up the looks and ruling the fashion world with fashion photographers now more concerned with the minimal images. The same goes for unretouched photos, which are now gaining in popularity with makeup looks and hair becoming more minimal as authentic aesthetic appeal grows in popularity. Given that more people are opting for realism and diversity, we should see fashion photography become more genuine and less contrived.
Getting its way in the 2016 photography trends, the humble chair is a trend worth taking advantage of. With the trend taking on the news feeds in 2016, it’s expected that the trends will still go on heading to 2017. Also, chair photos are a minimalist inspired trend that brings out the unnatural perfection of interior photos.
It’s no doubt that people are now getting into the analog kind of photography, and this is common in fine art photos and fashion shoots. It might be slightly expensive, but the 35mm is the best medium of choice for both emerging and established photographers.
Before the close of the year 2016, suburban seemed to take over the photography world. In the past year, the photography took a close insight into the dejected and dusty suburban areas of the American Midwest. The road trip has been an interesting niche for photographers, and it’s thought to shape a better part of 2017 with a close emphasis on pit stops. Also, abandoned homes, long empty roads, and sagging power lines should also feature as recurring themes.
