TIPS FOR THE COUPLE TO PLAN A MEMORABLE OUTDOOR SHOOT22 May, 2017 1000 Days Content Challenge Subscribe
No wonder why everyone is going crazy about outdoor shoots. It is one good opportunity for the clients to get some nice shots done in a calm mindset unlike the wedding day that passes like a storm. And the photographer also has a lot of time & space to exhibit his creativity. So as a client, how can you make sure you have the best outdoor shots? Here are my two cents on it.
COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY:
Talk to the photographer multiple times. Interact. Let him/her know about your expectations. Send your favourites pictures from the photographer’s portfolio so he/she has an idea about your likes and dislikes. Create a WhatsApp group between the three of you and communicate all the ideas frequently.
COSTUME IS THE CATCH:
The outfit that you end up wearing makes or breaks the pictures. Send pictures of you to the photographer in the outfit you are planning to wear. Try colours, style that complement each other and the location of the shoot.
SPRUCE UP WITH A LITTLE MAKE-UP:
Yes, you are naturally beautiful. Yes, you might be against make up. Yes, it’s an extra investment but trust me having a good make up artist will help a lot. You don’t need extensive make up like you do on a wedding day but a good make up artist knows how to prep you up. In case you are wearing a saree, a drapper would be of big help. So on this line, make sure you hire a good make-up artist.
PLAN YOUR POSES:
If you are not someone who is uncomfortable in front of camera and hate posing, you have to let your photographer know this. It will help him plan some natural poses. Converse with your other half a lot and see what makes you comfortable when it comes to photography. Dawn and dusk are the best timings to get foolproof shots. Don’t show up after 7:30 AM and tell your self you have made it early. In many places, after 7AM and 7PM things look really blah. Utilize the golden hours.
CHOOSE A LOCATION CLOSE TO YOUR HEART:
Because one place is so much talked about, doesn’t mean you have to plan your shoot there. Try to choose locations that are meaningful to you like places you met first, places you hung around or the place where you proposed. This will give you meaningful pictures for now and for the future.
