For one of my photo classes we have to come up with project ideas for ourselves to make our portfolios look appropriate for the kinds of jobs we want after graduation. I’ve known for years that I want to go into fashion photography but that is such a broad subject. After thinking about it I want to go into one of two things: bridal fashion photography, or lingerie photography. So I’m going to expand on these ideas for my class to add more diversity in my portfolio. I want to also get experience shooting multiple models at once, since that is a common thing. Since I primarily want to work for a small company or single designer I want to do a lot of work outside of the studio.
I have started on finding themes for the shoots that I want to do. As for the lingerie I want to divide it into 3 (or possibly more) categories. So far I have, bohemian which involves a lot of real flowers, mismatched lingerie, natural lighting, and soft colors. I also want to do something glamorous and feminine, and my last category would be raw, sexy, and more bondage-esque.
I created a mood board for my bohemian shoot. Check it out!
also, I need models of all shapes and ethnicities so if you leave near or in Columbus, Ohio, and are open to having your photograph taken almost nude let me know!
