1.) Embrace Easy and Prioritize Comfort
In the world of fashion, my goal is simple: comfort without sacrificing style. I love simple outfits that you can just throw on and give a put-together vibe with minimal effort. When it comes to photoshoots, comfort should be your number one priority. Trust me! You’ll often find yourself moving around, in different angles and positions trying to capture the perfect shot. So I always try to go for clothing that allows for easy movement. Choose fabrics that are breathable, flexible, and don’t restrict your range of motion. Look for stretchy, flowy materials that offer both comfort and style. By choosing clothing that doesn’t cling to my body, I can focus on capturing beautiful moments while feeling at ease.
2.) Dress for the Occasion
When choosing your outfit, consider the location and occasion of the shoot. Are you capturing photos in a more relaxed and casual location or photographing a formal event? For my everyday photoshoots, especially those outdoors, I tend to go for more comfortable outfits. You’ll often find me in athleisure-inspired pieces like joggers, workout pants, and graphic tees paired with leggings. But for my professional or formal events. I like to come a bit more dressed up while still prioritizing comfort. Think well-tailored black blazers, elegant jumpsuits, or flowing dresses that effortlessly combine sophistication and ease. I tend to gravitate towards darker colors like black to avoid becoming a distraction and allow the focus to remain on the subjects of the event/shoot. This subtle approach allows me to blend seamlessly into the background, moving around discreetly and capturing candid moments without disrupting the natural flow of things.
3.) Pockets are a Must!
I absolutely love when my clothes, especially my dresses and jumpsuit, have pockets! They serve as stylish storage solutions for small tools, batteries, lens caps, and other essentials I need to keep within reach. Whether it’s a pair of pants, a dress, or a jacket, pockets offer convenience without compromising your overall style.
4.) Wear Comfortable Shoes
One often overlooked aspect of photoshoot attire is the importance of comfortable shoes, especially for longer shoots or events. As a photographer, you’ll spend hours on your feet, moving from one location to another, ensuring you capture every precious moment. Investing in comfortable yet stylish footwear is essential. Look for shoes with cushioned soles, adequate arch support, and a comfortable fit. Sneakers, ballet flats, or low-heeled boots are great options that provide both comfort and style. Your feet will thank you, allowing you to focus on shooting without any discomfort.
