For great pictures try to use daylight so it wont alterate your skin tone or your wardrobe. Try different angles as well to enhace different outfits for example:
Miniskirt – try to photograph it from a low point of view to extend your legs to heaven!

Please free to post your own photoshoot tips

if you love shooting outside and can get your hands on one, try experimenting with a reflector (or anything you can use as a makeshift – i’ve used a foam board and wrapped it with shiny metallic kitchen foil) to get even lighting – if you position it right you can make sure you/the model has an evenly lighted face, to stop “nose shadows”. :)

I also take my own photos and find focusing the camera and then using the timer to run into the frame isn’t the easiest thing to do… I guess I could use a larger depth of field but then you lose that blurry background effect… Any one have any tips on how to make self-photography easier?

Phuonglet, that’s exactly the same thing I’m wondering too!
Although I could get my sister to take photos if I wanted to, we have different tastes and the way she prefers to take photos doesn’t match my way so somehow, I don’t think it would work really well unless I told her how exactly I wanted each angle and shot. (>_<)

Phuonglet and miki_girl – I’ve found it’s easier to use manual focus in the long run. You get the hang of how far you have to be pretty quickly, but if it’s tricky at first, you could use someone (or something – I’ve used my dog, a chair, etc.) to stand in.

If you have a fixed focal length lens with an aperture ring, use the markings to get a hang of it!

Hi Catherinee, Thanks for the tips! I’ll play with my camera a little more and will let you know how it goes!

I had trouble with focusing on my camera too, and I hate asking people to take photos for me, so I ended up getting a remote! They’re really cheap and are very useful. All I do is point my remote and the camera focuses and then takes the picture. My camera has an option of waiting 2 seconds before taking the picture so you could hide the remote in your pocket before you take a picture.
