Helpful Resources (including how to take your own outfit photos):


1. Scout locations including parks, streets, downtown, and even your own backyard!
2. Ensure your tripod is resting on a flat surface.
3. Find something to focus the camera on.
4. The closer you are, the clearer your shots tend to be.
5. You can use a timer, but a remote will save you a headache!
6. Take a test shot, get into position, smile, take the picture, then review what it looks like.
7. Set up the camera and start again.
The more photos you take, the more you have to work with. Make sure to include some close up shots that highlight the detailing of accents, accessories, and shoes.
