Procreate features more than 100 incredible brushes, an advanced layer system, and is powered by Silica M: the fastest 64-bit painting engine on iOS. So there I was, at an exclusive workshop for industry creatives, hosted by Elie Saab and Apple, covering the basics of fashion illustrati­on on the iPad Pro, and fashion photograph­y on the iPhone 11 Pro. We started by learning tips and tricks onto getting the perfect runway shots on our iPhones. I was headed out to fashion week the following week, and definitely leveraged the knowledge I gained from profession­al Photograph­er Eva Losada on how to chronicle the season by capturing strong, impactful images using the Ultra Wide as well as the portrait mode on the iPhone 11 Pro. Models decked in Elie Saab's latest collection were on standby for us to try out our shots, whilst Eva gave us a crash course on what to do and what not to do when snapping fashion photograph­s. Once we brushed up our photograph­y skills, we were taken to another room of the boutique to master using digital brushes on the artistic Procreate app on our iPad Pro, under the guidance of Digital Fashion Illustrato­r, Sabrina Percy. We covered all the basics of digital fashion drawing on the iPad Pro using the Apple Pencil on the Procreate app, which is a powerful sketching, painting and illustrati­on app built for creative profession­als. I had always wanted to learn how to use Procreate, so this was perfect for me. I was nowhere near as good as Sabrina with my digital illustrati­ons— but I wasn’t so bad either! I was well equipped with new, creative skills that would take my fashion reportage to a whole new level.
