I will begin with that it is simple supervision. I am not the professional photographer who shoots fashion models but I love taking photos of girls to update profile pages with sexy photos. So here is my insights on how to do it yourself or teach your friend who can take photos for you.
1. Camera. It is not obligatory to buy the reflex camera, perhaps, you will manage something compact. But the chamber with interchangeable lens will be big plus.
There are quite budgetary models which become even more budgetary when resell them. There is nothing terrible in second-hand photo equipment, if you the beginning photographer. You, most likely, will not notice the beaten-out pixels. And the chamber – not the car even if any defects will be found, from it is not present any threat of life.
2. The lens solves a lot of things. It is clear that the high-aperture lens is much better, but also is respectively much more expensive. The zoom (for example, the 55-250th, 18-55th) – is more universal than a lens with the fixed focal length (35mm, 50mm, 85mm), but to the detriment of a lightness. (It is very detailed about lightness to you will best of all tell google).
If you plan to remove the images, it is better to choose lenses with focal length from 50mm (telephoto lenses). For the average reflex camera – less 28mm are good for landscapes, your image can get lost on the general plan.
The telephoto lens will give beautiful degradation of a background (if it not in focus:)) also will help to concentrate attention that you want to show.
2. Light. Here it is possible to write much, but we will stop that is useful in life;). The most favorable conditions for shooting – midday in cloudy weather. The sun will not stick together an eye and does not add yellowness and patches of light to a shot.
In general, direct sunshine – not the best assistants to the photographer (if their existence is not provided by idea of shooting). In a sunlight defects of skin are well visible, the sun, close to the horizon, can add to skin earthy color. While the soft this world scattered by clouds will add shine and will hide defects.
3. Follows from point 2, the shopping mall too is connected with light. Where it is better to remove? Unambiguously on the street. Indoors artificial lighting can simply not be enough for you and the shot will be dark.
4. Flash. Better it not to use if you prefer to remove on the machine gun. Red eyes – smaller from the evils. Flash will distort colors, will add gloss to skin, will create patches of light and will introduce effect of artificiality in a shot.
5. We choose a place. If you want to shoot 20 images in 3 hours, hardly resist temptation to do everything on a balcony, a terrace, near an entrance of the house or on a staircase. But it is worth solving this problem, what result you want to get: fast to finish shooting with 20 dresses with one haircut and an identical background and somewhat quicker to receive votes to your profile or to please fans with beautiful pictures where you look the best and expose your “sexy you” at best.
Remember that a various background (even if it is washed away) – as beautiful “frame” for your image.
One more important detail – compliance of an image to a background. The girl on heels very strange looks in the wood or park, a bathing suit availability of water in a shot, a basket – at least assumes a hint on the nature.
6. A little bit hypocrisy. The good picture always lies a little. Perhaps you did not walk on the city on 12 cm heels, and brought them in a bag together with a chamber to a shooting place, but a shoe time on a heel rescue an image.
7. Idea. To watch conceptual photos much more interestingly. Transfer impression of the movie, drawing, picture, other photo, musical composition to the photoshoot. But remember that such photoshoot – the separate genre not always fitting into a format of street fashion, explain to your readers the idea.
8. Make “live” images. Perhaps you and the truth go to have breakfast in the next cafe in a dress in palettes and huge clip-on earrings in the form of peacocks, and short jeans shorts with a white classical jacket – your daily dress, but then do not take offense if someone writes to you that you played in fashion. Between originality and a dress of the city madwoman a thin side.
9. Take with yourself sunglasses. It is clear that accessories add to any image of charm, but black glasses – that small detail which can rescue a simple dress or too bright dress to which is not enough the corresponding make-up. Are simply lost by the girl’s time with light features in the “shouting” coloring or variety of details.
10. Remember a publication format. Some webcam sites allow you to publish pictures as you want without any limits. Respectively, vertical pictures will look better simply because their size will be better and more visible.
