- Have a theme, this is very important. Make a theme or some sort of emotion you want to convey in the photos. Whether it is seduction or innocence. Have a concrete theme for your shoot.
- Use natural lighting. It is awesome. And I guess it is cheaper that buying lighting equipment. It makes the model's skin so much smoother.
- Be familiar with your equipment. You don't want to waste time on the day of the shoot fumbling with your camera.
- Learn your model's assets. What is her best physical qualities? Is it her eyes? Then focus on them. In my opinion, a good photographer makes anyone look their best.
- Be friends with your model/photographer. It is 1000x easier to shoot. And also, the photos does not look forced. Crack a few jokes and don't be shy.
- Be inspired. There are tons of photos on the internet. Be inspired by other people's works.
|I had a theme in mind for this shoot, it was sort of indie summer!|
|This was for my online shop PORSELAS. My theme was a sorta happy go lucky girl|
|I shot this picture with the emphasis on the fabric.|
|I was good friends with the photographer :)|
So there are my tips. Hope I've been helpful! :) And I really am interested in photography. I do not have an awesome camera yet (a lot of times I use just a point and shoot camera). Been a few times I've been able to borrow a DSLR. I've been dreaming of owning one, but I guess I need a LOT of money for that. Shall save for my first DSLR.
