Everything I learnt about photography I learnt from America's Next Top Model...

Photobucket
Yup, it's true! Or everything I learnt about outfit photographs anyway!

Photobucket

1. Smile with your eyes. Or if you can't manage that just smile!

Photobucket

2. Model Head-to-Toe - and don't loose an opportunity to look taller than you are!

Photobucket

3. Find your light and, like, look at it..? I still haven't quite got the hang of this one!

Photobucket

4. Edit it in Post. Remember when they erased a couple of random crew members from the horse riding shots in the last-but-one cycle? Or in Australia's Next Top Model when they helpfully erased out Alice's bikini shoot, uh, issue?

Photobucket

5. Pose pose pose! Benny Ninja is my idol.

What's your top photography tip?

Haha this is brilliant! I need to take some inspiration from Benny Ninja and shake up my posing a bit I think!

Love this! Great tips here! And your pics are great. I think it's about time for me to invest in a proper camera as well.

Great tips. I still feel really uncomfortable having my photo taken - it's a necessary evil for the blog! xx

I am probably borderline obsessed with ANTM. It's quite sad really. I can't even get into BNTM, it just doesn't seem right without crazy Tyra. All I've been doing the last few (sick) days is watching Cycle 5 on YouTube, I can always count on that to cheer me up. So sad!

Love this! I hope you've been practising your smize! :)

My photography tips... good lighting, watch the head room and SMILE! :) x

Katie said...

I'm awful at outfit shots, but I've been wanting to do a few for my blog but I always look odd. I'll definitely try these tips out, does someone take your photos for you?

Leia said...

Haha this is awesome! I have NO photography tips because I'm a terrible photographer. Must start watching ANTM it seems!

EilidhPie said...

Great tips!
Mine is to not look down at the camera: even skinny people get doubles chins!

Haha, this is awesome! Whoever said ANTM (& co.) is mindless television was wrong.

annabelle said...

*FIERCE!* haha xxx

Rachel said...

I really should actually try following a season of ANTM... I just watch it when other people have it on the TV!!!

Despite being a fashion photographer, I'm USELESS at staring in my own outfit posts!!!
