Truth be told, it’s always better to shoot outfit photos with natural lighting/outdoors. I think most fashion bloggers or people who fancy an outfit photo would agree with me. Based on experience, I find that my photos turn out best when I shoot around 7 a.m. or 3-4 p.m.—I guess mister sun just decides to compliment clothes during those times.

So during days when I have plans only at night, it’s always a struggle to try and find good lighting especially when a lot of establishments have the yellow-ish light {which I’m trying to grasp the name of right now; I forgot}. So that poses some challenges for adjusting the white balance and possibly post-processing.

Of course I wouldn’t want to appear too yellow or orange because I’m not a fruit. Although it would be interesting to read a fruit fashion blog. Haha!

Onwards!


Check out this body chain I got from Anagon Collection when I dropped by to support her {Ana} during the GPB ’11 bazaar! I used it as a necklace for a casual night out, but I’ll definitely try and rock the body chain when I’ve found the perfect event for it. There’s so many ways to wear this baby, it’s totally worth it! Check out Anagon Collection on multiply for more nifty accessories!

Wore a loose top since I knew this was going to be a heavy night! As was trained during my girl scout days, I came prepared. *wink*

Thank you so much to my bebeh since 7th grade, Alyssa, for patiently taking my outfit photos despite struggling with the lighting!

Tidbit: I prefer not to use the flash as much as possible. I just feel that using the built-in flash would not do justice to my outfit shots {or most of my photos, for that matter}.

What about you—what time do you prefer to shoot {outfit} photos? Do you have a “default” location?

Anyway, hope you all have a great day! Keep checking back for more updates. I’ve got great news I’ll be sharing with you soon!

  1. I agree with you Megann! I really love taking my outfit shots outside when the sun's still up. :)

  2. Just a tip: you're shooting at f/8. Shoot at 15mm and at f/3.5, and you'll get better results in indoor/low-light. Oh and that yellowish lighting is called 'tungsten' so set your camera white balance to the bulb looking logo.

    Have a good day.

  3. Oh and I meant to say 18mm not 15.
