Be Unique, Let the world recognize your photos!

In this creative world, everyone uses their creativity in blowing up their photos. They might be a professional or an amateur, their passion is to click candid and vibrant shots; but everyone can’t be called as a professional photographer.

Despite the wide-spread use of point-and-shoot cameras, very few people were able to properly take photographs. That’s why photography was and still is a profession in demand;

Keeping about the professionalism aside, Photography is all about setting up the mood and making the photo speak on behalf of you.

Whenever you click a photograph for photo-shoot keep these little hacks in mind which makes you stand as a unique photographer!

Present in a perfect way

It might be any kind of photograph, all the thing you need to do is portray in a perfect manner. You might have clicked some hundreds of terrific pictures, but only a few of them will blend in a perfect way.

Never be “Typical”

While you may not see this exact type of situation every day, there are many ways you can apply this principal.  When you shoot a portrait, do you simply have your model stand next to a pretty flower bush, use a large aperture, and snap away?  Isn’t that incredibly typical?  Break out of the box and do something fun and creative!

Add Some Emotion

Everyone clicks, but only a few add and portray little emotion to it! A photograph should speak about the photographer’s mind.

Be Friendly and communicate

If you are doing the photo-shoot of a baby, or a couple, whoever it might be it’s really really important that you need to make your subject comfortable. Communicating with them will make you click fewer shots and pictures will blow out with fewer edits.

Know your specialization

You might click those amazing wed-lock photo-shoots, but you might fail to present the nature and landscape in a better way. Though you might be an awesome photographer it is not mandatory that you can click all those types of photo-shoots. So know your specialization.

Create a Brand

The brand is like people, they too have personality, and that personality has a direct effect on customers and potential clients. When you’re developing your brand, decide what type of “person” it’s going to be. You should always show your passion, reliability, approachability, and charisma. It might also be Fun, Adventurous, Spunky, Hyper professional! All of your messaging should center on this feeling. Over the years your work might evolve and vary, but your brand should always remain the same.

Try something creative and unique

Stand out there and show your pictures to the world!

You are clicking pictures, but keeping them in the cupboard is not a good idea. Choose the platform to showcase your work; it might be Facebook, Twitter, or creating your own blog, Instagram or participating in the Art Galleries & Contests, or posting to local newspapers and magazines.

Even talk to your local promoters. They all need photos, and if you can provide them for them, you can get paid, and get your name out there. Stand out and be remarkable. Be loud and tell the world that you are a part of this wide photography world.

Surprise souvenir and Thank You Card

Every photographer clicks, edit, take payment and leave! But a clinch of gratitude and gesture are really important because those events or photoshoots might have helped for your bread winning at the initial stages o a career.

So you can maintain the contact list of your clients and surprise them with little souvenir and a thank you card for being the precious client. This will definitely make you stand unique and mark you as a friendly photographer.

Yo Men! Things you must know while posing for a photo shoot!

Yo Men! Things you must know while posing for a photo shoot!

Hey, Men!  Do you think only women have certain hacks and pose’s for a photo shoot?  If you think so, you should stay more updated. Not only women do pose near the beaches and struggle a lot with heavy attire, but men also do.

According to the research, Men usually feel less comfortable in process of photo – shoot. So it’s better to be prepared before the photo shoot. Talking about the men there are some ground rules that help photographers understand classic male to pose in a better way, and also serve as a guide in creating their own poses and variations.

When a man thinks about the best version of himself, he never thinks about being pretty, cute, or showing off his sexy hourglass body. The entire thing that a man wants is to be strong, fit and tall while leaching coolness, confidence, and self-control; because the man’s body is not about curves, it is about angles and raw power.

Here are some of the photo-shoot hacks a man should know

The Face

Adjusting the Jaw Line

It is critical to measure the manliness of a man. The chin should be little out and a bit down. This will gently stretch the neck while hiding part of the neck from the camera.

The Eyes

Men with big round puppy eyes will evoke fear and confusion. It is always better to raise the lower eyelids a bit so that eyes look narrow while keeping the upper eyelids still.

Head tilt

There is a lot of confusion between a tilt and a turn.  A man should never tilt the head towards the camera. This is a cute feminine pose and even the most interesting masculine man in the world would look different if he poses like this. You can either keep the head neutral or tilt slightly away from the camera. Note this mind that tilting too much away from the camera can be perceived as being rather arrogant and a bit aggressive.

Perfect your smile

 Even for the men smile is the most crucial part. There’s nothing wrong with perfecting your smile and banishing your inner spud-head. Over-smiling, going cross-eyed, excessive blinking the eyes should be avoided.

  • One hand loosely to the side, one hand in pocket
  • Arms crossed on the chest with shoulders a bit down (relaxed shoulders)
  • fixing tie and link cuffs
  • hands on the football, guitar or another prop
  • one hand in pocket, the other hooked on a jacket thrown over the shoulder

Photo shoot Hacks that every model should be aware of!

Photo shoot Hacks that every model should be aware of!

The photograph is not only about the still, it is all about the photographer emotion involved in it. When you look at a beautiful picture everyone sees the picture, but no one ever thought of the process or the emotion or the risks that a photographer has ever faced it.

Especially in fashion photography, one must have a strong foundation for that to manifest properly in your image. Forget the lighting, focus or pose, first you need to question the frame. There should be a unique style of every photographer and the photographer success should lie with this style.

These days everyone is acquiring cameras for many purposes, be it a personal shoot or professional or the content of their blog or for the travel diaries; whatever the reason it might be, at the end of the day we expect our photos to be marvelous and go wow we see each time A great image can be captured by following a few of these “ground rules.”

A model should know how to pose for a photo shoot and a photographer should know how to mold a model for the perfect photo.

The basic things a model should know for posing a photograph.

Practice

Practice, Practice and lots of practice are needed for a model. It could be in front of a mirror, or in front of a friend/relative or it could be an industry professional.  One should know how you really look when posing and it can help to rectify the flaws immediately. Listening to the advice from others during these practicing sessions can change the pose better.

Body Awareness

Understanding the body gaining awareness is vital so that one can gain a perspective of how your figure is viewed.

Confidence

Nothing can defeat the person who is really confident. A committed and confident model who performs well at a fashion shoot will earn a strong reputation.

Considering the Feedback

It is always better to ask the feedback from the superiors and colleagues. Some might suggests and hints which are useful. Considering this feedback gracefully ensuring to try out the idea ASAP. Never ever decline or refuse their suggestion as the experience of the industry experts, because this will help you become an exceptional model.

Follow the Nose

All amateur models instantly feel the need to keep their eyes on the camera, but preferring opposite is the ideal thing. A model should always glance off camera as “follow your nose with your eyes,” as it reduces the amount of white in the eye and eliminates the awkward over rotating eyeball.

Bounce the Shoulders

Shoulders play a crucial role in framing the face of a model.  Raising one shoulder higher than another will add dimension and strength to the image.

Chin Out and Down

Keeping and pushing chin forward and then down when faced directly towards the camera, jawline seems to be big from the photographer perspective. The model should be moved slightly to their side profile.

Opening the Mouth

When a model opens the mouth it could completely ruin the look of the photograph. Keeping the mouth closed, the jawline clenches and adds extra weight to the sides of their face. It might also give negative energy to an image, a bored neutral look. Keeping the mouth slightly open, the jawline is elongated and gives a subtle intimate invite to the viewer.

Shake the Concrete Feet

In fashion photography, shoes are a vital piece of the wardrobe. But, they are often overlooked because legs and feet are never easy to pose. This is the reason why many photographers avoid the full body shot and go right for an easy three-quarter image. But, when it is really a mandatory thing to capture the full body and the shoes, it is better to implement motion.

Ballet Hands

Any model should relax their hands as if they were in a ballet, spreading the fingers lightly, slightly broken at the joints.

Cut the Chimping

Chimping, a term used in digital photography to describe the habit of checking every photo on the camera display (LCD) immediately after capture.Chimping is the deadly habit that can kill the energy of a shoot.Beng curious to look over the photos is fine, but sometimes it might look awkward.

Being confident and posing as a model is not so easy as people think. Keep experimenting and keep talking. Connect with your photographer and be patient, because unless you’re communicating, you’ll never get that perfect pose.
