Taking fashionable pictures has become many people’s hobbies these days. Especially with the presence of social media, people have become more aware of the things that could help them climb the social ladder. With all these changes, people could easily become a model without having to join a runway competition or to join a modelling agency. On top of that, agencies and brands noticing you on social media give you more advantages as well, not only you get more followers because people love watching your feeds, but you could also add more connections from it. Not to forget, small and big companies would probably want you to do reviews for their products, as result, you get to do a side income job as well. That is why many people are getting more enthusiastic about taking pictures of their outfits, and why they are comfortable being fashionable. But taking and posting pictures is not just about your outfits and being fashionable. It is everything about the picture, the quality of the pictures for people to look at, the message or purposes of the pictures, and especially the backgrounds. So I would like to share with you guys some of the things that you can take into considerations so it could improve your fashion photography.
Image Quality On Social Media
Before you start with anything else, you have to make sure that you can provide good and clear quality images to your followers and clients such as brands and businesses. Not having good quality pictures is as good as not taking any pictures at all. In order for you to have high-quality images, you are required to invest in the right tools. Well, some people are not scared of investing and they would probably straight away get good cameras for photography. But it can also be your smartphone, and it does not have to be a real camera. The transformation in technologies has become more convenient for us to make use of. There are many kinds of smartphones that come with a high-quality camera that allows us to have good and amazing pictures.
Moving on to my next point, so basically, you would want to be seen as different. Why? Because many people do fashion photography as well, take pictures of their outfits, probably more outgoing than they should in their pictures, and of course, brands love those energies. Nowadays, it is hard to make appointments, getting models to come to the studio to take pictures, and most of the ideas, especially doing fashion photography in the studio has become lame. When brands could see that you are determined to go this far to get their attention, and you are able to do marketing on a fashion brand on social media, this is your shot to show them what you got with having a storyline behind your fashion photography such as “the new girl town”. When you are able to come up with these ideas, you get a clearer vision of how you should do your fashion photography and explain it as it is your own originality.
Background And Locations
As for background and locations, it does not mean you have to be in a different country to have good pictures. Good pictures can be taken anywhere as long as you allow yourself to be creative. You can do your photoshoots for fashion photography inside of your room or even in the backyard of your house, and it would not matter. You just have to make sure that how you fashion your clothes and your background is relatable or complements each other because if not, your picture would look weird and you definitely do not want that to happen. Meanwhile, for outdoor fashion photography, you can always check out Instagrammable places to take your “Outfits Of The Day”. For example, Orchard Road Street in Singapore, which is really near to Canninghill Square River Valley has some cool places for you to check out for your next outfit photoshoot.
In brief, with having some basic knowledge and more on determination and creativity, you could definitely pull off to have amazing fashionable pictures. As long as you believe in yourself and never stop exploring.
