Fashion photography, outdoor, indoor, or anywhere in between, can be a lot of fun, especially if you’re shooting photos for your own fashion blog. What can you do when you’re short on creative fashion photography ideas and you’ve got a lot of couture to cover?
Here are our top fashion photoshoot tips for fashion bloggers. We’re ready for our close-up, Mr. DeMille.
1. Avoid Over-Editing Your Photos
Fashion photography, at its core, is a celebration of human beauty, not uncanny perfection. Too much editing may prevent your spirit from breaking through when all is said and done.
There’s nothing wrong with things like spot removal and the like, of course—they’re your photos, after all. When you start to tiptoe into the realm of heavy body modification, unnatural skin correction, and other significant deviations from the original image, you run the risk of ending up with something that looks less than true to life.
In many cases, the real deal is so much more attractive and interesting to behold.
At the risk of sounding overly sentimental and body-posi, every fashion blogger should embrace themselves fully, flaws and all. Simplicity in post-production is key.
