Photography Mini-Series 📷
Wearing a bomb outfit isn’t always enough to slay your photos if you don’t know how to bring it out and make it yours. Here are some simple tips and tricks that will elevate your looks in photos.
Confidence is the key.
I am sure you all heard the saying “When you feel good, you look good”. Confidence and the right attitude are the alpha and omega in photos. Not feeling confident in front of the camera is a common struggle, so my advice is fake it till you make it. It is important to choose outfits that represent your personality and style and make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Remember confidence is the ultimate “beauty product” you can rock.
No matter the fit that suits your body shape (mom fit, skinny, flared, straight-leg etc.), high-waist is the way to go. High-waist jeans/trousers literally compliment all silhouettes since they cinch the waist and elongate the body creating the illusion that you are slimmer and taller. Think of it as a natural photoshop trick.
Don’t let the clothes wear you.
The last thing you want is to look stiff and flat in photos. Oversized clothes can hide your figure and make you look overwhelmed. Here are some easy tips and tricks to avoid that:
◆ Tuck-in your oversized sweater, top or blouse so as to highlight your curves and bring some shape to your outfit.
◆ Add a belt or a belt bag to give some character to your look. This tip can also apply to dresses and coats.
◆ Sometimes it’s all about the right pose. Simply by putting your hand on the waist, you create that tuck-in effect.
Outfit & Background.
If you are wearing a bold outfit, try to go for a darker, dull background so as to make your outfit stand out even more. This way you will create a contrast between your look and the surrounding and give more dimension to your photo.
No matter if you planned it or just happened, make sure your outfit matches the whole aesthetic so as to create a complete image which ties all the elements of the photo together.
Small details can make a huge difference.
Here are some simple ways to upgrade any look:
◆ Layer minimal jewelry.
◆ Roll up your sleeves.
◆ Have a nice manicure.
◆ Add a bold accessory.
◆ Wear cute, fashionable socks and hair clips.
How to style outerwear pieces in photos.
Jackets and coats are a staple piece during fall/winter but kinda challenging to style since they can look bulky in photos especially when it comes to faux fur or puffy, bomper jackets.
◆ Wear it off the shoulder.
◆ Add a belt.
◆ Wear it over the shoulders.
Turn your flats into heels.
All you have to do is separate your legs from each other a little bit, bring one leg in front, stand on your toes and voualah! You will instantly look like you are wearing heels.
