Today there are many fashion bloggers who started their blogs as a hobby and have reached thousands followers. If you want to know their secrets, do not miss the best advice we got.
Ale Gallegos: The important thing is to have fun
The personal blog of Ale Gallegos is one of the most widely read today. She told us that he began to fashion blogging with a Canon camera and still using the same brand, basically because it is very user friendly. His latest acquisition is a Canon Rebel XS. The best part is that it is one of the best gifts for women
To fashion blogging can work with a semi-professional camera with standard lens, but the use of some lenses can make the photos look much more professional. I work with a 50mm lens f/1.8 for photos of my looks.
Between a pocket camera or one with interchangeable lenses, Ale definitely prefer the latter, since to them the pictures have better quality and you can control everything (aperture, exposure time, white balance, etc..).
Most fashion blogs are visual, so that images with a look professional will provide much more. In addition, garments can be worn in a better way.
Although Germany does not work with filters, use Photoshop to retouch photos using colors contrast. As for the ideal location to take pictures, she considers very much depends on the look that you want to display, but the best locations are those with good lighting.
Can you make blogging fashion using only a smartphone? I think these are necessary when it comes to covering events and more immediate things (especially for Twitter and Facebook), but I also think it is important to provide images that look professional for blog posts.
When asked about her favorite fashion photographers told us that he loves the work of Tommy Ton, both on his blog as when working with Style.com. She also loves the pictures of Stockholm Streetstyle.
Jane: Be happy making your blog
Jane is the creator of fashion blogs. The preferred brand of cameras is Canon, as it was the first to be bought, is very friendly and easy to use.
Considers that the necessary equipment for a fashion blogger is comprised of a good camera that suits your needs and various lenses. Sometimes you also need a flash. The advantage of a camera with interchangeable lenses is that you can achieve a better quality photos.
On the other hand, Jane does not use filters because they prefer your photos look with the exact colors. Just use Photoshop to retouch and edit the photos you take.
To fashion blogging is not necessary to have a camera. If you wish, you can have a blog and pull photos from the Internet or even have a photographer to take pictures for you. You can even take them with a smartphone, iPhone or whatever. Everything depends on the style you want to give your blog.
For Jane, take pictures in stores is very complicated. The distorted view of the shops and strongly influences the colors. You have to work with the white balance. When taking photos of their looks, prefer to do outdoors, and if it’s day better.
Alessandra Mazzini: Your photos should show a different style
Tomar for fotos for su blog, Fashion In Da Hat, Alessandra a first Nikon D5000. Nos. comenta first solo ella que buena for camara y un Buen fotógrafo mantener un son necesarios for fashion blogs.
Since we want to show a conventional person (not model), I think using a computer to a professional photo shoot is not as necessary.
Alessandra prefers to use interchangeable lenses for your photos, and coming out with better quality and people take more seriously the blog. Believes that a good photo taken increases the interest of readers to see what else is on your blog.
I like using vintage filters, but all in Photoshop. I do not usually use real filters.
Alessandra believes that if there is enough light, it can be done using a smartphone fashion blogging, especially with an iPhone 4. About taking pictures in boutiques, she does not seem so interesting to see pictures and clothes hanging racks. People prefer to see combinations and looks.
If you are looking for rare and interesting effects to your photos, Alessandra suggests using a white background. Otherwise, do street photography is also a very good option, especially in a street which are not many people or cars.
My favorite photographers are Rumi Neely and Oracle Cox. I love his work.
Giha Peralta: From a small detail can go a great idea
Blog Writer Chic Adventure, graphic designer and lover of photography. Giha told us that the last camera you bought was a Canon Rebel T2i, recommended by his photographer, Yael Rojas. This confirmed that Canon is the best option. Moreover, in the NY Fashion Week saw many bloggers with this camera.
I think that blogging is very free and there is no regulatory team to be blogger. I decided to invest in this equipment not only for being a blogger, because I am a graphic designer and I have always loved photography. If I had to give a recommendation, this would be trained a bit on photographic composition and some image editing, but would not make sense to invest in a good team. For my blog I have two lenses: one of 18-55 and a 55-250 .
Giha believes that the pictures are the letter of your blog and more are what defines it. This not only refers to the photos of their outfits, but any public image, as all must pass its quality standards.
In Lima, there are many beautiful areas to take pictures, such as streets, parks, old houses, piers, etc, but really all depends on your Photoshooting. For example, I think a lot about the outfits that I use and what colors I can help highlight. This is a joint work I do with my photographer.
As advice for fashion blogging, Giha suggests consideration the details at all times, and compare your own blog with which you admire. One must analyze the details of these and apply them in their blogs. This refers not to copy, because it is convinced that a small detail can go a great idea.
As you can see, do fashion blogging is not no big deal. Be guided by your preferences to find your own style and, above all, be happy doing it!
