The photography genre of fashion photography is challenging and unpredictable enough and can be even more unpredictable when you add uncertain circumstances of shooting outdoors. The location where you choose to shoot fashion photography – indoors or outdoors – is a key element to the artistic process.
Finding the right location may be difficult, especially when you have to work in multiple environments to achieve an overall theme. The tone, textures and dynamics of the location you choose will determine the overall success of your shoot. Everything about your fashion photograph – the light, the model and the photo backdrop – are all equally important to the success and look of your session. By understanding the differences between indoor and outdoor environments, knowing your tools and understanding how to be highly productive, you will set yourself up to have a successful fashion photo shoot.
