After a couple of years, it felt great having an OOTD shoot inside a studio. Special thanks to Photomark Lightworks Inc for making it possible. The last time I had this experience was way back my Rachel Allen Nursing Pageant days. Although there were some form of " being not that used to" scenes at first but good thing, Charlie (she's a girl) made it easy for me for being so patient. Also, I never forgot listing down some great advantages of a shoot being held inside atelier. If you are ready for the reasons I jotted down, well, here I come!
1. Lighting. If we are talking about consistency of light, doing a photoshoot inside a studio is the answer for it. There is a way for the photographers to adjust it depending on their mood, either dim or bright. What's best about an indoor shoot is that, whatever the time of the day that you have, you still have all the light in the world that you need.
2. Variety of backgrounds. Unlike an outdoor OOTD takes, you need to go somewhere else to change your background. The flexibility of milieu is quite tiring that you need to find a perfect spot to differ everything. Unlike in studio, you have all the ideas to change your settings depending on how light or dark it is. It ranges to the plainest up until to an artwork like scenario.
3. Expedience and convenience. One of the blogger problems in terms of taking OOTD's is to how to change one outfit to another. Sometimes, we are teaming up and bringing 2 sets of clothes to blog about (yeah, it requires effort). It is really hard to change inside a car from time to time because of the space it has to offer. In workroom, there is a convenience on putting your clothes to a hanger to avoid being crumpled. Also, there is a restroom where you can change your clothes. There is another area for you to freshen up. If we are talking about space expedience to change whatever clothes we have, then this is the right place to organize your shoot.
4. Organized with full control of elements. One of the greatest issues of outdoor OOTD is the unpredictable weather. There are times that the forecast is cooperative but most of the time, it is not. There are windy days, rainy days and strong sunlight in which may affect the totality of each picture's layout. In which if all the things will be done in a studio, then everything will be under control.
5. Edit-ready. Most of the photographers (I think) would favor shooting in atelier instead of outdoor. One of their main reasons is all about editing. Based on what I have noticed, if they are trying to slim down a specific subject to look really skinny in the pictures, they can easily liquify a specific angle to meet their target shape. Unlike on outdoor settings, most especially if you have vague backgrounds, there is a lot of uneven alterations making a specific shape hard to score.
I know there is a lot of advantages and cons of a studio shoot as compared to an outdoor setting. What is important is that one is capable of catching up and bringing up the best picture of an individual. I really hope that you find my points worth it as I know there are a lot of downfalls that counterpart it.
