Fashion week is a heck of a whirlwind. A series of back-to-back shows, presentations, parties and events that, by the end of the week, blur into one long, sleep-deprived memory. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to quickly recall the standout shows, the must-have pieces, and the moments that defined the week—scrolling through our phone’s photo albums. And of course, as the editors of FASHION who attend these fashion weeks each season, it falls upon us to document everything we see and experience for our readers and followers. Which means, those photos and videos we snapped and recorded endlessly? They better be good.
From each FASHION editor covering fashion week, here are some tips and tricks we use for getting great photos, along with some handy things we learned at a ‘Today at Apple’ class on photo skills at the brand’s Eaton Centre store the week before fashion month began.

For me, the biggest challenge during runway shows is getting shots that capture the details of what a model is wearing in the few seconds as she passes by your seat. More often than not, these images are over- or under-exposed and extremely blurry. (Models walk fast.) Focusing on elements like shoes, jewellery or head accessories can be even trickier, but these three iPhone features helped me up my photo game this season.
