PHOTOSHOOT IDEAS: WAYS TO TAKE YOUR PHOTOS TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

Hello everyone,


Do you know that feeling when you see a photo on Instagram and are immediately inspired by it? So inspired that you wish it was your creation? This happens to me all the time! Thanks to all these amazing photographers and models, I'm able to to learn and even improve my own skills. It's really something indescribable because we creatives thrive on seeing our ideas come to live. It's ELECTRIC!

Since I have been blogging for 5 years now (will be 6 in April), I've always wanted to progress, grow and hopefully inspire YOU! To me, one photo can tell a story and evoke a feeling just by observing it. A single glance and it's as if you're there. 

In my photos, I strive to tell stories of passion, strength, youth and the power of beauty. That's why before each photoshoot there is a thought process, which I like to chase until the end (yep, I'm super stubborn)🤣. Once I share this idea with my photographer we get to work and make it happen. 

So today I want to share with you a few ways you can take your own photos to the next level. Next time, you're doing a photoshoot try these tips. I think you will most definitely like the results!😉 

Now let you shutter button start dancing!📸 




1. Add a Mirror

To give your photos a different dimension, add a mirror. Any mirror you own is fine. It doesn't have to be fancy. You just have to know how to use it. If it's small enough you can be holding it in your hands. If it's big enough, you can place it on the ground and play with various angles. What I love about a mirror shot is not only the double reflection, but also the way it captures the surroundings. It's so perfect to use in the desert since there you have the open space to try lots of creative poses. 

Last year during our road trip to the Valley of Fire, I decided to load up my mirror in the car and give this idea a try. It was so fun and something that I haven't done before. At first it's kind of difficult as you're trying to adjust and check-out to see if your photographer and their camera are in the shot. As time passes, it becomes like second nature... your mirror becomes your best friend! 

Also, you don't have to limit yourself to just a mirror. Whenever I see a cool reflection, I'm so inspired to basically get in it and later see what comes out of it. For example, when parking many times I see the reflection of palm leaves on the window of the car and you just know that's a winning photo. Or I see cool buildings with tinted windows that create such photogenic opportunities. Don't miss these opportunities and always keep your eyes open! You never know what treasure you might stumble upon!!!




2. Get Crafty with Clothes

Another unique way to add dimension and that "WOW" effect is through your clothing. This one is just as fun especially if you're wearing a flowy dress and there is wind. Let the train of your dress flow into the camera as you pose. This will give your photo a super dreamy effect! 

You can really play with different fabrics to improve the creativity of your photos. For example, use the lace of any type of clothing you own to cover the lens. Can it get more passionate than that? haha

As a desert lover some of my favorite photos I have done are with palm leaves. I love having them in the foreground as a close-up while I'm in the back pretending to be in a desert paradise. It turns out beautiful and these photos are ones that always remind me of some kind of magazine campaign. 

The props and options are endless. Clothes are meant to be worn, but ohhh yeah, they can be more than that, when it comes to creating a story within a single photo. Your Insta-photos will be skyrocketing that's for sure!!! 💯




3. Add a Silhouette

This third and last photo idea is one I want to experiment more with because it can absolutely leave you speechless in the best sense of the word. 

Create a silhouette figure with a lit background. Definitely play with different lighting and focus on the one subject you want to be the center of attention. It can be a silhouette of a dancer on stage with colorful lights shinning in from every side. Just imagine how stunning of a shot that would be!

This creative image idea can be a bit of a challenge and I feel the more experience you have with the camera, the better. However, that's how we creatives learn. We keep on trying and wanting to improve our imagination, imagery and composition. So fear no more! Add a silhouette figure next time you want to create something captivating. I'm sure you'll inspire a lot of people with an exposure like that!

Also, many silhouettes can happen on the beach during sunset as the sun is setting behind you. It's one of these moments when it's so good to have your camera at hand. You'll completely fall in love with the idea and want every sunset to be a silhouette dream. 

Now tell me...what inspires you to take creative photographs? What do you want to improve on when it comes to your photography?

  48. I often get inspired with photos on Instagram (I have some of my favorite profiles), but usually these are stylizations or spots (I'm looking for similar ones)
    When it comes to learning photography (I'm not good at it and it's probably not my passion) I use the tips of photographers

  58. Yes it seems we all have to take our photography skills to the next level for sure. Such great tips here and I like how you guys broke out of the traditional shot and would shoot through or behind things like shooting through the glass of a car or behind a chainlink fence.

  60. Hey Radi! How you doing?! I hope you're having a good start of the month!

    Ooooh where to start?! First of all I'd say you have improved a lot, I've been following Fashion Radi for many years (thanks for your constant support too) and you are evolving in a very natural way. Some of your pictures feels so editorial and I really like what you're posting lately over here.

    So thank you for sharing these tips and advices with us! When it comes to photography there is a lot of techniques that we could improve, but on the other side the creative area (adding mirrors, crafty details in look) are very useful and some of them are there to be used in a few minutes!

    Keep doing an amazing creative job!
