I’ve been blogging for what feels like an eternity and I’ve learned a ton of things along the way, the most helpful being angles and photography. If you search my blog “Stiletto Beats” or my name (formerly) “Emily Jenny” you’ll find an exorbitant amount of images of various different styles.
2. 3/4 Shot – The 3/4 shot is one of my favorite shots to take! It provides more detail into your outfit but still includes a majority of the look.
My 3/4 shots are taken from the stomach/chest region…say what? Yup, Enzie Photo first holds the camera right in the middle of her chest/stomach and then takes a step back and looks through the viewfinder to take the shot.
Again, this provides an accurate, aesthetically pleasing backdrop but is not taken as low as the full body shot.
I frame myself from about two inches below the knee and up and always ask for a lot of space above me.
The second photo is not bad but I find that it doesn’t capture the scene. This would also be a nightmare to crop into Instagram as you would either have a portrait shot of just your face or a detail shot without your face. You would not be able to have the full image on your feed.
3. Sitting Shots – Now this shot is purely based on preference because I honestly like both but for different reasons.
If you are planning on posting a full body shot of your outfit (sitting) then the first photo is what I like to do. I have my photographer kneel down to exactly where I am and take the shot (basically she is sitting on the floor with me). The camera is flush/parallel to where I am. I typically have little to no space on the bottom of the photo and a lot of space up top.
The second shot works great for outfit details (see below). I simply cropped my face out. This shot is taken from above with the photographer standing up rather than sitting.
