Recently, I received some questions about photography.
So, I thought I'd share few things I do when I take outfit photos. 
Hopefully someone who is starting a blog can benefit from what I've learned. 
When I first started this blog 6 months ago, I searched all over the internet for any tips about style blog photography. 
Surprisingly, I didn't find much information about it, so everything that we've done is what we've learned from our own trial and error. 
Hopefully some of you can benefit from this post. :) 


Today, we are going to focus on what I call "the shot list."
Every time when we take outfit photos, we have 4 mandatory shots we take. 

Here are the 4... 


#1 >> "head to toe" shot is almost mandatory for style blogs. This shot will allow your readers to get a feel of your entire ensemble with one glance. I usually like using "head to toe" shots as my very first image on my post. 


#2 >> Upper body shots are also part of the package. 
Breaking up your outfit photos by each section will help your readers digest your outfit better. 



 #3 >> If we have the "upper body" shot, we definitely need a shot for your lower body! 

This is where your feet posing will come to play. 


#4 >> Your outfit post cannot be complete without capturing your little details! This is the shot that will showcase your jewelry and accessories.

I'm working on a second photography tip post right now. 
If you have questions feel free to ask me! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Great post! Your pictures always look amazing. Do you shoot in manual or auto?

This is a good list! My husband and I are constantly battling about what he should be taking pictures of - maybe if I show him this he will actually start shooting these :)

2. Consider a tripod.

3. Keep your camera with you all the time.

4. Make a list of shots you’d like to get.

5. Don’t overlook mundane subjects for photography.

6. Enjoy the learning process.

7. Take advantage of free resources to learn.

8. Experiment with your camera’s settings.

9. Learn the basic rules.

10. Take photos regularly.

11. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

That's a great list, Steve. This post was focusing on the shots of what I think an outfit post should include. However, I will definitely incorporate some things you mentioned on my upcoming post I am working on. Thanks for commenting!

sasha said...

these are all great questions! I will make sure to include some thought on this on my next post about photog tip! thanks, nicole! xx

sasha said...

Hi Grace! Yes! I have lots of great suggestions depending on your budget. I'm a Canon girl, so I recommend the T3i or the T4i--which is the newer version. They are both budget friendly, and if you are looking for a camera one step up from entry level, I recommend the 60D!

Thanks, Amy!! xx

sasha said...

We use manual!

sasha said...

I hope this will give you some sort of guidance! ;)

sasha said...

you can use this with a tripod, too!
