    Fashion Photography Technique Tips For Beginners

    Remember The Rule Of Thirds

    For this 'rule' you have to split the composition into 9 equal parts by drawing two vertical and two horizontal lines, thus creating an imaginary frame. Most cameras, even if you use a smartphone, feature a grid-line function that will help you to visualise this division. You should place your subject in one of the points where the lines cross. This way, your composition will look balanced.

    Don’t Overdo With The Lights

    A mistake some new photographers will make is creating a lighting set-up that's just too complicated. By arranging a huge array of lights, you limit the number of poses a model can provide you with. The simpler and more flexible your lighting set-up is, the more scenarios you’ll be able to accomplish within a single session. You probably won't find every photo to be lit perfectly but that's not a problem as you can lighten the photo using Movavi photo editing software.

    There Should Be A Story

    Fashion photography is not only about clothes or accessories; it’s also about creating a story. Take an appealing photo that would grab the attention of the viewers and make them think about the story told without words. Make the surrounding scene a part of the story you are trying to tell.

    Don’t Mix Up Fashion Photography With Portrait Photography

    When you photograph a landscape, it's pretty obvious it's a landscape but it's not always as easy to distinguish between a fashion photo and a portrait. For fashion, you need to make the clothing the star of the shoot (not the person as such). You need to show an outfit off, focusing on the fabric, the beauty of the details, and the patterns in the garments. Basically, your job is to make those viewing the image want to buy the clothes.
