So this article would be about the tips that you should consider in getting good photos of your fashion look or collection book.
1. Light it up or down or in-between
It's all about the lighting. Your fashion book can provide a feel of calmness, aggressiveness, passion and peace if you choose the right lighting for your photos.
To make your fashion really pop, choose a natural light or studio light with a soft box (you can even make one from a lamp and an old white shirt). If you are using a flash, you'll probably want to bounce it or stick a diffusion filter on it.
2. Make a shot list.
This is a critical step and more important if you are photographing models. Even if your model is a closest friend who owes you a favor, they'll appreciate it if you know exactly what you want to shoot. Think about the poses you want to capture, the outfits you want them to wear and the details you want to highlight in every shot.
3. White Balance (WB)
Accurate color and skin tones come from making sure the WB function on your camera is set to your lighting situation.
4. Choose the right lens/zoom setting.
If you're using a wide angle, you're going to lose our beautiful lines (and your model may never forgive you) If you have a camera with different zoom levels, zoom out to minimize lens barrel distortion.
5. Keep it stylish.
It's fashion shoot after all. Play music, keep things moving, try new angles. Give it some attitude and it will go places.
6. Dress it up.
Make your book as fashionable as the clothing featured in it. Choose a simple design that doesn't upstage the clothing, but would definitely look chic. Pick the size and paper type that showcases the work brilliantly.
If you have all eyes on the fashion catwalk then you'll know that fashion means different things to different people. Follow your own fashion obsessions and document them in a fashionable book. If you look good today in person, imagine looking great forever on a printed page with Blurb.
