SL Vogue! How Do You Do Fashion Photography?


Recommended Posts

Ok, so THIS one . . .


The garments and accessories here are highly dramatic, so I decided to use a full background again (the rails of a Paris metro station), but set it up to make it very obviously stagey and artificial. This is meant to look like a slightly off-kilter runway show; the lighting (projectors and one point light for highlighting) are also set up to draw attention to the texturing and cut of the dress.

I don't consider my photos to be fashion photography per se, but I do shop a lot and enjoy getting dressed up and taking pics of my avatar. I also really enjoy exploring, so my photos are usually take

I am really not sure if I do take fashion photography. I just take pictures of my avatar, or my friends, and clothing is a part of the overall composition and often plays a very important role. It all

To me, this equates to the type of pictures I do when I am blogging.  For me, my priority is showing off the outfit to its best.  I tend to take my pictures as close up as I can without cutting out to

Taking pictures of myself takes so much time. I try to make it as close as possible in SL to avoid long postprosessing. I had to do something with the shoulder here, since it is a hopeless break. But I could have done something with the knee, added a shadow there so it's resting better on the floor. Lightned the very dark shadow on the elbow. But it is so tedious.

Beautiful pic, Marianne!

The other option for the knee, if you're using Black Dragon (and it looks to me as though you are?) is the poser, and gently nudge it down to the ground.

So, yeah. This one gave me a hard time.

I'm never entirely sure about fashion pics done in black and white -- colour, obviously, can be a really important element of any outfit.

In this case, however, the garments are essentially monochromatic, and I felt the pic was enhanced by stripping it down and highlighting, maybe a bit more dramatically, that element of starkness.

It's also a darker pic: generally, I use lighter foregrounds and darker backgrounds to make the clothing stand out, but here I've reversed that. I am honestly not sure if that was wise or not, but hopefully the lighting does catch some of the lovely textured detail on skirt, top, and necklace.

That was a nice compliment, that it looks like I am using Black Dragon. No, I am using Firestorm. BD is too hard for my computer.

The other way would be using a poseball and rotate/move it. I can not remember how I posed here, with an animation or a poseball.

So, another fairly minimalist background, with a heavy reliance on lighting to highlight aspects of the garment -- here, most particularly, the shiny materials of the rubbed leather portions of skirt and top. I've also used what is I suppose a more "dramatic" angle, which possibly does not show off the outfit as well as a more head-on pic would, but that I think helps create a sense of movement and reinforces the "feel" of the piece.

I love this skirt outfit. I love how it uses leather.

slowly over the past 2 years that i've been on sl, i have been trying to upgrade my quality of photos considering it's something i love to do and it helps out with a portfolio for graphic design (since i am studying that for a trade!) 

i would like to share a few things i have taken recently! -- it might not be too "fashionable" in the traditional way, but eh! here it goes anyway!

EDIT: if anyone wants to leave any criticism! please do!

ANOTHA EDIT! (xD): i am not sure where half of the items came from in the outfits so i am not going to dig around my dusty inventory to find them now! if i need to, i will. sorry about that! :D

in my (poor) opinion the first shot is too dark, I cannot recognize your outfit, in the second one the "punctum" are the blue eyes that have distracted me from the rest which is blurred and there is too much use of High-key lighting 😎
