Recap 2015 Day 4!
Hello again and on we roll with the Instagram Notes!
I'm realising more and more the huge importance of photo styling , location backgrounds, quality of editing and variety of locations. I'll be discussing all of these individually in the next few posts.
Photo styling, this is where you can set the tone and mood of your photo. Photo styling is a bit like set designing only your preparing your scene for a photographer instead of a TV camera man for example.
Preparing and styling your photo beforehand can mean the difference between a few "Likes" or hundreds. If its a fashion shot then choose your outfit and then accessorize accordingly. You may want to use props in your shoot , for example piece of furniture , chair etc. Make full use of these props but don't clutter the photo. Most photos look best when the main theme is strong and not too much more going on. However, using furniture whether indoors or out can change the way you would normally pose for your photo, therefore giving your photo a fresh new take on your normal shot.
For example if you normally stand at a particular angle then a chair can change all that. By sitting on one and stretching your legs and placing up against a wall can give a fresh new take on whatever you happen to be wearing on your lower half. Example skirt/trousers/fancy boots or amazing shoes you may want to showcase.
It just takes a little preparation and thought when it comes to styling the photo beforehand but its so worthwhile in the long term.
Talk more on photos tomorrow. xxxxx Violinkit
