Little Known Photography Tips for Fashion Bloggers

    If you have a fairly good digital camera, you are probably quite good at taking candid of your friends or creating beautiful macro shots. However, when you are fashion blogger on top of that, you know that all the rules change! When you want to get great pictures of clothing that happen to both show off the benefit of certain clothes while remaining fairly dynamic, there are a few tips for you to keep in mind.

Move Around a Lot

As photographers, we know that it is very important to have a model who is invested in moving around. You get the most dynamic shots when a model is engaged and when they are interacting with their environment. What you might not know is that you should be as well! Stay on the move. Circle the model, find new angles to shoot from. A fair number of the shots will not work, but this is completely worth it for the shots where they do.

White Space

When you are taking great pictures of clothes and fashion, you don't necessarily want a lot of background getting in the way. Most fashion photographers agree that shooting in a studio is the best way to move forward as it allows you to control the light, but what happens if you do not have the right kind of space? You can make the right kind of space very easily simply by tacking up one white sheet and lining the floor with the other. When you do that, any irregularities are easily taken out in post-processing.
Get a Friend 

When you are a fashion blogger, you are probably used to working on your own. However, when you are getting ready to take pictures that are more sophisticated than what you have been doing, get a friend or family member to help. They can move reflectors, help you get the right angle for things, and provide ideas that you might not have had on your own. Simply having another set of hands around can make a huge difference to your shoot.

Check Out the Magazines 

When you want to make the photos for your blog look like a fashion shoot, why not learn from the pros? Pick up a number of fashion magazines, and even take a look at some standard magazines for the fashion inserts. Look at how the models are posed and how they are presented. You will shortly notice that there is a mood set for each photo set, an emotion or a feeling. Choosing an emotion for the photo-shoot can help you stay focused on what you want to accomplish. 

Get Lots of Time

If you can, avoid being rushed. The more time you have to work with the backgrounds and the model, and the more time you can spending experimenting, the better you will like your results. 

Take a moment to learn more about how you can make the fashion photography of your blog really pop. It might take some time, but it is entirely worth your efforts. For further information on camera attachments to boost the quality of the photo check out Snappit Digital Cameras and Accessories.
