Shawls created by the artists of Kashmir got the star treatment on May 19, when Kashmir Rose photographer Mara Szabová returned to the Foxcroft School for the second part of a photography and design workshop. A week earlier, Szabová and Princess Aliyah Pandolfi spent time with the 9th-12th grade girls in Foxcroft’s fashion club teaching them about the design and creation process for the Kashmir Rose shawls, and the photography techniques used by Szabová to capture the beauty of the shawls and tell the story of their rich history. On Szabová’s second visit, the students took charge to show what they had learned.
Some girls modeled the shawls as others photographed them in a variety of locations and positions. The girls were then tasked with choosing the best photos based on several criteria, and editing the chosen photos. Watching Szabová edit a photo, the girls learned to use Photoshop and adjust elements like brightness, contrast, saturation, and sharpness to make the photos as visually pleasing as possible. At the end of the day, the girls revealed the final product of everything they had learned, with great success!
