We are living in the ages of influencers and instagram posts! A stunning outfit photo is what will make you stand out from the rest of the crowd. The question is what does it take to stand out from the crowd? A stunning outfit photo requires good lighting, good poses, and someone skilled behind a camera. We’ve broken down some tips for a great outfit photoshoot to get you on the right path to becoming the next big thing on instagram!
Plan Your Photos
We most definitely know that being prepared is key to a good execution. Figure out exactly what theme you want to come across in your outfit and make sure wherever you take that photo is a great match aesthetically. You also don’t want to spend your time looking for a good spot for your outfit photos, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead. Make sure you plan your outfit coordination as well. Little things like knowing whether you’re more comfortable in a denim skirt vs. denim shorts can help you be more prepared to look your best at your shoot. Are you accessories coordinated for the shoot? Does your hair match the vibe of the outfit? All these are questions that need to be answered before you’re out there shooting that photo for the gram.
Lighting is a critical part of taking a great outfit photo. A photo that is too dark or grainey can turn away many users. You want to make sure your outfit is showcased in the best lighting to engage your followers and make them double tap. Lighting can be tricky when shooting outdoors. The time you choose to have your shoot can also have a big effect on the lighting. Outdoor shots are best done a little after sunrise or a little before sunset. Plan your shoot to accommodate one of those time slots.
Find a Great Photographer
You’re going to need someone who knows your angles. A great photographer is what will take your photos to the next level. They don’t need to be professionally trained, but you definitely need someone who understands your vision as well. It’s important for them to have a basic understanding of lighting, and what angles fit you best. This way you both can come up with cohesive ideas. Last thing you want is the person taking your photos not understanding your overall vision.
Find Your Best Angles
Learn what works for you. Practice makes perfect when it comes to finding your best photo angle. Try practicing some poses in the mirror and see which ones you think are more flattering to you. If you practice you’ll have a better idea when you’re out at your real outfit shoot of what is going to give you the best shots.
