Top Fashion Bloggers Know These 5 Photo Taking Secrets

A few years ago Pallavi Ruhail was a public health worker who snapped photos of her personal fashion as a hobby. Self-described nerd by day, fashionista by night, her Instagram photos were so popular she soon started a fashion blog called “That Delhi Girl” that has since turned into one of the most popular fashion sites in India. So how does a doctor become a top fashion blogger practically overnight? It starts with embracing your inner fashionista and getting handy with a camera.

Let the Sun Shine

The best fashion bloggers make good use of natural light in their photos. Indoor photos can be too dark, while bright and direct sunlight can cause too many shadows. Diffuse sunlight as you might find on an overcast day is your best friend for snapping style pics. Get out on the street and let your city be the canvas for your photoshoot. Or if you’re shooting indoors, sit near a light-filled window and let natural light do its magic smoothing the contours of your skin.

Master the Art of the Selfie

Not every photoshoot has to be an elaborate production. You can capture a photogenic moment on the fly with a well-framed selfie. Keep your chin down and the camera positioned just a little above as if a slightly taller person were taking your photo. If you want to make eye contact, make sure you look into the lens of your smartphone. Or just cast your gaze down towards the ground for a more demure look. Snap a selfie in a mirror to capture a full-body photo of an outfit, just be mindful of what else is getting photographed — both in front of you as well as in the mirror’s reflection — so the photo doesn’t look awkward or cluttered. And don’t be afraid to take a lot, like a LOT, of photos to ensure you get a keeper.

Try a Collage

Nothing shows off all the angles or variations of a great ensemble like a photo collage. Capture full-length body shots and stitch them together side-by-side like this recent Instagram pic from TDG’s Ruhail. Or use a 2×2 collage to sum up four of the best moments of a trip with a little travel montage. You might even use a two-photo layout to show a before and after of your makeup art or an interesting hair up-do. Collages are fun, and so popular you can even turn your beautiful photo collages into wall art if you find you have a knack for composition.

Bring a Friend

By far the best way to start capturing your personal style with photos is by passing the photography duty off to someone else while you focus on the art of fashion. Recruit a friend with a good eye for photography  – or better yet, a quality camera –  to come along on a photo shoot.

Most Importantly, Be Yourself

Authenticity shines through. Trust yourself and your own sense of what makes for a fashionable photo. You’ll know when you’ve got the look; you’ll feel confident, empowered. Don’t fake a smile or try to mimic a style that doesn’t feel like “you.” Just be real and your true beauty will show.

If you have a knack for fashion and feel like you could have a future as a fashion blogger or Instagrammer, follow these tips, show a little persistence and you too could be quitting your day job for a career as a fashion influencer.
