PHOTOSHOOT 101

HOW TO GET THE BEST LOOK

 

WHAT TO WEAR

Bring 3-5 outfits to choose from.  Colorful and flashy outfits are best for the darker and smokey background.  


AVOID CLOTHES THAT


- Have pictures/words/labels/logo.  
- Overly busy patterns

- Clothing that restricts or compromise your movements

 

AWESOME PHOTO/VIDEO FRIENDLY CHOICES


- Choose similar tones for tops and bottom (both light colored) 
- Anything that sparkles, shines, and/or drapes are highly encouraged! 
- Feel free to send us your picks ahead of time.  

HOW TO DO YOUR HAIR

If you have long hair, be sure to bring a hair tie or clip.  In certain moves, your coiffure may cover your face entirely.  We want to make sure we have options to showcase your best feature.   

MAKE-UP

- Moisturize!!! 
- Have your makeup done BEFORE arriving
- Even out your skin tone

- POP your EYES and LIPS with COLOR.   

- Bring setting powder and essential makeup items for touch ups

 


HOW TO PREP
 

 

ALWAYS KEEP SAFETY FIRST.  PHOTO SHOOTS ARE

NOT A GOOD TIME TO TRY NEW POSES OR TRICKS.  

  • Prepare TRICKS/POSES you can comfortably get into and out of.   

  • PRACTICE - Find studio time to rehearse your moves.  Either be able to get into the pose on spin, or practice the angle you want the pose photographed from. Remember, you'll have to hold them for at least 5 seconds or 3 spin rotations for the best shot. This is much more tiring than you think.  

  • LESS IS MORE - Many of the best photos come from very simple poses that you are able to hold and fully express.  

  • To maximize time and lighting, we start with moves/poses on the floor and work our way up the apparatus.  We recommend organizing your poses this way to make the shoot more manageable.  

  • For aerial tricks, we like to shoot in a gentle spin mode to capture different angles.  This saves you a lot of time and energy from having to get up and down the apparatus.  

  • SHAPES - Try staying in a safe hold, and finding new shapes using your hands, arms and legs.   Personalize it with your own expression. 

  • BRING A LIST - Either print out a photo list or have it handy on your phone/tablet/laptop.  It's very helpful for us to be able to see the poses ahead of time. 

  • SMILE - Practice smiling in the poses you want.  Find ways to relax and breathe.  

  • TIME - We recommend showing up at least  20-30 MIN before your scheduled time (not including time to park and walk to shoot location).  Come early.  Stretch and warm up before you have to hold that split for what seems like an eternity.   

 

*** EXTRA CREDIT*** - Some of the best images we've captured are the ones where our subjects are completely immersed in the expression.   We like to end all our photo shoots with a simple 1-2 MIN FLOW so you can get a variety of "in the moment" shots.  Bring some songs you like to dance to!    


THE CREATION


You will receive a digital gallery link to view your images (watermarked to indicate they are proofs) within 7 days.   Select your favorites.  We will retouch and deliver to you the high-definition images within 30 days.   

Additional edits are $25/image or 5 for $100. 

 

We provide basic retouching for each image.  This involves removing blemishes, brightening teeth, smoothing skin, and removing unsightly artifacts.  Our process is to correct for lighting/exposure and color temperature to give each picture the best range and definition.   Lastly, we add our "signature" touches to give each image a unique stylistic look.  


There is a fee starting at $25/image for advance editing beyond the retouching services listed above.  


***Please Note*** Unless agreed upon, RAW files of the photoshoot will not be included in the final delivery.  They can be purchased for $10/RAW UNEDITED IMAGE.   


FINALLY...and MOST IMPORTANTLY....


Smile, point your toes, and have fun!
