Have you seen the gorgeous styled shoot done by the lovely Annie Taylor Hall for our last #THEITCollective series? Read on below as Annie shares her top 5 (and super simple) tips on how to plan THE perfect styled shoot. xo
Whenever I plan a stylized shoot, I have to decide a couple factors. Do I need hair and make up done? Do I need a stylist? Clothing vendors? What type of models? Etc.
With that being said some of my tips for putting together a stylized shoot is:
1 | Believe in Moodboards
For those of you who don’t know what a moodboard is, or might contain, they’re basically images of anything that fit the “mood” of your shoot. Whether it’s pictures of people, make up, color palettes, interior or exterior settings, etc. By doing a moodboard it will help establish expectations within your shoot. Typically I put this together before I contact any vendors or models, I like to be able to show them exactly what I want from the get-go. I also want to note, when I do collaborative shoots especially, I’m always open to having them dip in and explore their creative side as well, I never try to dictate exactly how it’s going to look. By using a moodboard, they get an idea of what guidelines I’m looking for and want to stay in, but feel free enough to use some of their creative ideas.
