Whoever said that fashion photography was strictly for runway or cover models, celebrities, and “professional” photographers?

We now live in a different world where women can be bodybuilders, people can create works of art with drywall, and the average girl can be a fashion influencer with just the wardrobe and the tools she already has. In the past decade, there has been an emergence of social media platforms; and with that, content creation has become even more competitive and, some might say, lucrative. So it is easy to see how fashion photography and Modern Art Photography have been gaining greater following, appearing in more varied mediums.

Everyday Fashion Photography

While clothing companies from all over upload pictures by the thousands, just in time to release their latest collections, millions of average, everyday people have also taken to doing the same . . . for various other reasons. Like the multitudes out there, you can take some inspiration from these photos, put your own spin on them, and produce your own content!

Have them featured in any of the following:

  • Fashion blog.

If you have a passion for both words and clothes, this’ll be perfect for you. You can take one of the photos here, post another of your own for a side-by-side comparison, and write about your inspiration for the day’s ensemble.

  • Lookbook.

This is ideal for those of you who simply love the art of styling, putting staple wardrobe pieces together. A few sentences to describe your OOTD will round it all together.

  • DIY projects and hacks.

You can also up the ante by showing people how you pulled off the look featured in “Minimal Fashion Photography” with, say, an old corset you found at the flea market.

  • Portfolio.

If you’re serious about having a career in the fashion industry—either in modeling, styling, or photography—remember that you can use those mentioned above as your portfolio or to add to it. Make sure to have a good mix of Portrait Photography shots, editorial stills, closeups, etc.

Have Fun with It!

Of course, we have to keep in mind that at the very core of this foray into/experimentation with fashion photography should be fun. This, after all, is but a twig branching out from its broader limbs, fashion and photography, both of which are parts still of the much larger in comparison tree of self-expression.

Yes, it all boils down to knowing who you are and showing the people around you who that person is. Tada!

Take it from this selection of stunning fashion photography ideas.

  • Know the look you’re going for. (Of course.)
  • Play around with lighting. Mood lighting, studio lighting, natural light . . . whatever floats your boat. (Maybe take a few tips from Fine Arts Photography as well.)
  • Occasionally go for negative space. Yes, you don’t actually have to fill the whole frame.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles. Opt for a blazer and some penny loafers to go preppy, tight black jeans and strappy heels to go edgy . . .
  • Try shooting from several different angles, applying other filters. Or maybe even eighty-six the latter.

It’s your prerogative. You do you.

Just remember to have fun with it.
