As we all know, photography plays a HUGE part in the fashion industry, especially if you’re interested in being a personal or streetstyle blogger. No matter how stylish the outfit might be, if you don’t know how to get a great OOTD or street shot, not many people are going to tune in.
Outside of smiling, posing, and having a decent camera, one needs to know how to both set up the shot and edit it. KP Fusion reached out to photographer & friend Louis “Ziggy” Tucker (Fomoloop), and asked him for a few tips on shooting self-portraits, beauty, and fashion looks. Here’s what he shared:
It’s the photographer, not the camera
What you study, how you see the world, how you deal with people in front of a lens, and your understanding of basic photography & light affect the overall outcome of a great image. You do not need a $3.5K camera + lens combo [although they do help in certain situations] to take a great photo. It mostly goes back to proper understanding of light and image composition. You should be able take a great photograph with a camera phone or even a disposable camera you can get at Walgreen’s.
