This shoot was a great example of how much I still have yet to learn about photography. I was actually going to scrap these pictures because I’m not happy with them, but I decided to post them anyway–they’re valuable in what they’ve taught me.
Three of the most important things I’ve learned so far are: 1) Don’t look at the camera too much or else you’ll just look like a ham. 2) Interact with your settings. 3) Move around! Go to different spots within the location you’ve chosen to shoot at.
Now I can add a fourth: 4) Lighting is an important thing. It can make you look good or bad, or it can change the color of your dress, or it can cast some ugly-ass shadows where you don’t want them. Be wary of all these things.
In any case, at least the clothes look good! Here’s the third of my Too Much Fun dresses–I actually added another Emily & Fin dress to my collection today! I think I might post that one next, if I don’t decide to get it hemmed first.
