Outdoor Fashion Photography-A Brief Description
Fashion photography is one of the most creatively flexible disciplines among the different types of photography. It gives the photographer a lot of creative licenses when it comes to shooting a fashion shot. That is why fashion shootings are frequently held outside rather than in a studio. Outdoor settings give these fashion products a new lease on life, making them a popular choice among fashion photographers. In contrast, outdoor fashion shoots come with a unique set of challenges relating to the concept, logistics, posing, lighting, and camera settings that studio shoots do not share. Outdoor fashion shoots are characterized by the following ingredients: a unique artistic vision, well-coordinated logistics for the entire crew, properly set camera settings to ensure qualified shots, creative posing ideas using props on location, and proper lighting techniques making full use of the natural light as well as stilted lighting. A fashion shoot done outdoors is referred to as outdoor fashion photography. A fashion model is photographed by using a location's setup to pose against a pre-existing background. The photographer may sometimes bring custom-made props and equipment to that location to fulfill the specific creative direction and incorporate the surroundings. The crew might bring along studio lights along with them depending on where the shoot is being done and whether the location is poorly lit or if the theme of the shoot calls for creative lighting.
Advantages of outdoor fashion photoshoots
One can benefit from shooting outside in a variety of ways, such as expanding your creative options, eliminating the stress of creating or purchasing a beautiful backdrop, and, unfortunately, a feeling of security that cannot be overstated. But the outcome of the pictures is amazing as the colors and lighting is much better the product looks way better in a day light and the entire concept comes alive.
A natural light source
Beautiful natural light is an added advantage of working outdoors. There is hardly any requirement of those big studio lights which you would be using if you are shooting indoors. Sometimes, even those fancy studio lights are not enough to carry out a fashion shoot. That is when natural lighting comes into play; one should just get out and take full advantage of it. Stunning images are made possible by natural lighting. Natural lighting in photography adds depth and mood to a photograph. Some nice banner shots could be captured in the golden hours. Golden hours refer to the two hours just after the sunrise and then at the end of the day just when the sun is about to set are the hours which every photographer craves. In those golden hours, the photography lighting is quite perfect. In those early hours of the morning and then later in the evening the sun and clouds are in such positions that the light falling from the sky becomes optimum for taking dramatic and creative shots.
Huge expanse for shooting with endless possibilities
Photographing outdoors is not restricted by space. It's easier than working in a studio since you don't have to concern yourself with space limitations or a tight deadline. Having almost unlimited space is one of the benefits of shooting outdoors. Professional photographers will be more creative with their shots with the extra space. By utilizing multiple lenses and trying different depths of field and prop placement, a fashion photographer will be able to manage more images with the group in the shot, trying different lenses, and exploring things that might otherwise be hard in a small space. Your photos can take on a theme or atmosphere if you use outdoor photography. Again, all that you see in this world is available to you: the skies, the waves, the mountains, and the streets.
Bespoke backgrounds and beautiful sceneries
When it comes to outdoor fashion photography, the possibilities are endless. You don't have to be concerned about the background of your images or the scenes you want to photograph because there are so many options! You can choose between calm, turquoise coastal seas and green grasslands and brown mountains. You can play around with the stunning blue sky as a backdrop. The list might go on forever. When you shoot outside, nature becomes your canvas and your backdrop. Thus, the stress linked to figuring out how to set up a studio space is relieved. There is no need to invest in or create fancy backdrops, instead just pick up some places and start shooting. Sure, some parts of the world have more evident natural wonders than others, such as gorgeous mountain vistas or tumbling streams; breath-taking red rocks, or a dense coniferous canopy, but the truth is that each region has its unique appeal.
Adds variation to your fashion catalogue
A mix of pictures shot inside a studio and outside will take your fashion catalogue to another level altogether. Planning and performing outdoor shoots with the assistance of a professional fashion photographer will add some variety to your fashion portfolio. Though the sets might be designed in the studio, going out into nature will allow you to construct a different scene each time. Different looks may be produced when going to one location at discrete times of the year.
An outdoor fashion shoot could be cost effective
Yes, you read it write, outdoor shoot executed with proper planning could be cost-effective. If you shoot at locations that don’t cost you money is always going to lower down the whole budget. Places like parks, streets, or any abandoned structures could come in handy for your projects. But on the other hand, all locations are not available for free, especially private properties, so, for those shoots, the overall budget will fluctuate as well.
Our outdoor fashion photo shoot package includes the following components:
For your outdoor shots, we supply you with stunning concepts. Outdoor photos are undoubtedly superior to indoor due to the lighting, setup, and colors, yet there is another factor to consider: the relevant background or overall concept depicted in a photograph. For example, while photographing a bridal lehenga, the frame, concept, and location must all be relevant to the product and Shaadi. The lehenga should take center stage, not the background. These are some crucial elements to consider.
Choosing best locations
The venue for the photoshoot is extremely important, and we assume full responsibility for it. The location's aesthetics, props, appearance, and feel must be appropriate for the product we're shooting. Everything from the location's color palette to the background and lighting must be in sync. When all of these elements are combined suitably, the result will be spectacular and captivating. We have the proper tools, people, and experience to help you with it. You can relax and leave everything to us. Before deciding on a place, we must consider the weather conditions in that area; the location's weather circumstances; the weather must be ideal for the photoshoot; for example, if the temperature is too high or humid, the makeup will rapidly lose its hold, and the images will not appear fresh. It shouldn't be a wet day, for example.
All of the aforementioned aspects play a significant influence in the overall execution of the photograph. The models you choose for the goods you're shooting are also crucial. It all relies on the photo shoot’s theme. What are the products you're shooting, whether it's a plus-size or high-fashion shot, western or Indian clothing? The models we use are entirely dependent on the type of product we're filming. For example, if you're looking for a mountain bike, you can choose a model based on its physical characteristics; similarly, the concept and the selection are inextricably linked. If we're shooting swimwear or lingerie.
When it comes to post-production, we must first determine the concept's requirements. Stick to the theme and post-processing as needed. There are a few things that are important for everyone, for example, we must remove all extraneous items and blemishes from the photo. If there are any marks on the model's skin or anything undesired in the backdrop, we must erase it. We need to figure out what the theme's mood is and then add lighting and filters to match. We must be cautious that the main subject, the product, is highlighted, while the remainder can be kept at a lower level. The main product should outstand in the composition or frame of the final photo.
