I made this video several months ago. I know that lots of bloggers have already done "how to take outfit photos" posts, but I thought I'd add my two cents in - and also try doing something besides just a normal post. For more tips, keep reading.
Not going to lie. This is the thing I struggle with the most when it comesto outfit posts. It sems like all the best locations are a) on private property or b) extremely hard to get to. My best tip is just to keep your eye out when you're out and about, and if you're shy about going, try taking a friend with you. If all else fails, a simple brick wall never fails!
If possible I recommend using a DSLR camera. They provide clearer photos, and make the background blurrier, which is great because the outfit stands out better! I usually take my big, black purse with me and use that as a marker to focus on. If you don't bring something with to use as a marker, try using a stick or a flower or a tree or something.
This is another tricky part. The biggest tip I have, is to just try to be yourself. Just try to be confident - stand tall and try lots of different poses till you find a few that look good. Then when you're in a hurry you'll know what to do without having to spend a lot of time messing about.
Props are a great way to loosen up and get some good shots. I usually bring my purse, and use my accessories + whatever I can find around where I'm taking pictures. I hold flowers, grasp tree branches, hold my necklace, sunglasses, etc. Whatever you can make work!
I hope this helps! If you have any additional tips or tricks go ahead and leave a comment. I'd love to hear 'em!
