Take your fashion photography to the next level!
The Agora fashion police are out and on a mission to get the community’s submissions catwalk ready! With just over a week left to upload your best shots to #Fashion2019 we’ve put together our very best advice to boost your motivation and creativity!
💫 Here’s our 3 shortlisted tips you have to keep in mind to get those super stylish photos:
Location, location, location!
There is no limit to the types of places you can choose to have your photoshoot. However, there are places in the world that work better when trying to execute certain looks than others. Here are a few suggestions for stylish photoshoots:
💙 Colored walls – These add excitement to any photoshoot, and are easy to find in cities. Certain colors may also attribute to a mood or feeling of a photoshoot. Play around with this!
🌿 Gardens – Great for floral photoshoots. Again, they are easy to spot around your city or you could go out to the countryside. You could even try a photoshoot in the comfort of your home with a few plants!
🌆 Rooftop – Rooftop locations are great for urban photoshoots. Though they may be harder to spot, try to find one to create a more inner-city feel to your fashion shoot.
🎥 Studio – You don’t need to have a full floor painted in white and perfectly illuminated. Any space with a wall that is about three or four meters wide and five meters clear in front should be enough to have a successful photoshoot.
If you are lacking inspiration, try adding some props to your photoshoot! Props add more meaning and support to the subject of the photo, in addition to helping it look more interesting to the eye. You can use classic props in an unconventional way, or get creative and make your own!
Lots of photographers choose to include movement to add an exciting visual element to their shoots, as well as help them portray a mood. The secret to capturing the perfect photo in movement? Burst mode. Burst mode allows you to take a series to shots without releasing the shutter button, resulting in more shots of your subject.
