I upload several photos to my instagram account almost every day. I am sure you know that you don’t need a glam squad and a photog to get a really great mens bomber jackets photo– like when my parents and I go on all those adventures, she’s my photographer! Here are some tips to achieving an amazing shot of your outfit of the day.
LOOK FOR THE PERFECT LOCATION
I prefer to take all my outfit of the day pictures in front of plain walls. This keeps the focus on my clothing, keeps my feed cohesive, with plenty of coordinating tones and colors. It appears as though it needs plenty of effort but it’s really not. Keep your eyes uncovered, chances are there’s one inside walking distance of your house, school, and work.
Even if you have the whole picture organized down to the features, lighting is very essential. Natural light is perfect for #OOTDs and selfies too. I prefer to have the light in front of me and try to evade having several shadows on my face.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
Achieving the perfect pose can be really hard. I prefer to practice in front of a mirror so I know which poses looks perfect for each outfit. Try to take note of the poses that make you look and feel your prettiest. Learn your best sides and most favorable angles.
DO NOT ALWAYS STAND UP
It is not forbidden to sit down, so try a seated pose some time. I particularly prefer them since they make my legs look slimmer and longer.
CAPTURE PLENTY OF PHOTOS
Have someone who is taking the images keep capturing all while you’re making tiny or subtle movements. This will provide you a great assortment of images and poses to pick from.
