The recipe for a good photoshoot (Behind the scenes)

Recently I've had a spontaneous photoshoot with the very talented Julia Dresch - and before I post the results, I wanted to show you these "making-of" photos and share some of my advice for fashion bloggers doing outfit photos/posts!

1. Find people that are geniuenly interested in what you do and like to take pictures. 

2. Look for locations that are interesting and appeal to your asthetic - I usually prefer urban and rough city scenes, I think that's because I grew up on the countryside and got "sick" of nature.

3. Don't forget that you as a blogger are some kind of artist - representing a persona and documenting things you see and like. It doesn't need to be photos of food/candies all the time, like I see on many blogs.

4. Check the photos on the camera after the first few shots to see what kind of pose flatters you and the outfit! 

5. Wait for the right time and light!

6. Natural poses!

7. Also do some detail photos!

8. Do not just post pictures of you in a row. Add a pretty flower inbetween.

9. Have fun !
