There are a lot of ways to hold photoshoots. People have even gotten more creative with how they hold photoshoots. Maybe use a variety of poses or even use very unique locations or devices and tools. For instance, a famous TikTok influencer, Wisdom Kaye, takes his photoshoots by himself but the results are just as good as if a professional photographer took them. In one of his TikTok videos, he explained how he did this and it just amazed me how someone can be that photogenic. He explains that he has his photoshoots in an empty parking lot with his phone resting on the bumper of his car. A lot of other people show how they take their beautiful pictures too. Be it taping their phone to their ceiling or simply using a monopod or tripod.
Nonetheless, people are getting better at holding their own photoshoots or setting up unique locations and getting creative with their ideas. However, for today, we’re going to talk about the basics again. Back to how it all started and when people had to stay still for several minutes to get their picture taken. Well, I was kidding about getting into that second part but we are still going to talk about some of the most basic spots to have your photoshoots. I’m not saying it’s bad to have many other ways to take photos, I’m just saying that the classic way still hits the same as it did. Wisdom Kaye still applies this to his photos and they still look amazing. And yes, I’m talking about making your backgrounds solely just walls. Be it brick wall or glass wall, we’re going to get into some of the best, one by one:
As I just mentioned, brick walls are one of the best spots to have your photoshoot. It gives off a rustic vibe that will enhance the street fashion you’d be wearing. Now, since it is a brick wall, you’d stand out a lot with almost anything as your choice of style, especially street fashion. The colour of bricks, literally named brick red, is a great background that will complement your streetwear even more. However, be careful not to wear anything that would sink into the background. Find yourself a brick wall and have some photography fun.
Glass walls are classic. They’re simple and they make really good photos once you’re done editing them. Plus, even in the raw result, they look pretty good. Especially since they’re glass, it’s fun to play around with reflections of yourself or of the things facing you. For instance, when the camera is angled by your side, there will be your reflection as if you are leaning on yourself. Or, when you pose behind a glass wall with natural light hitting it, like a sunset, the results could look as if you’re in the middle of pretty lights. Now, to find a glass wall is simple. You could maybe do it in your office. This is because a lot of offices in Malaysia hire a glass partition Kuala Lumpur manufacturer to set up an operable wall system Malaysia to make the office look more elegant and smart. So, you could maybe request to shoot your photos there.
Plain Cement Walls
Plain cement walls are also very classic. What else did they have back then that’d be more interesting than a plain wall? It would complement anything you’d be wearing and it’d look especially cool when you’re styling your streetwear.
Coloured walls are a really great option when it comes to making sure your outfit and the background match or contrast. Whichever you prefer, a plain background is also the safest choice in photoshoot spots when it comes to taking photos that are somewhat in the same colour grade. Some people like to match with monotones and some other people also like a little contrast when it comes to the colour of the wall and the colour of their outfit.
Textured walls are a bit harder to find, however, once you do, you’d have a blast taking the photos to post on your social media. Textured walls give a more rustic look than brick walls and at the same time, it looks pretty elegant.
Bonus: Add Spice With Decorations
Okay here’s the thing, since we’re all in a pandemic, I’d suggest that instead of going out and looking for random walls you could take photos in front and instead stay at home and create your own background and editing. For instance, an influencer on Tiktok simply took a blanket, hung it behind her and added some artificial lighting which can be very fun too.
No matter how you choose your spots, I’m pretty sure your photos will come out just fine.
