You’re dressed up head to toe and the sole thing that’s circling in your head is the need to document your OOTD. I can confidently say that I’ve had the skill of photographing my OOTD’s down pat, so let me give you a quick input on how to properly take it with no other backdrop but a wall.

1.) Look for a wall that complements the color scheme of your outfit. Best finds are brick and stone walls. They’re versatile and any style will look good on them. If you’re dressed to the nines, avoid outrageously painted walls and settle for plain ones. You can also go for contrast by looking for unfinished structures like unpainted or plain cemented ones. These often serve as a great background most especially for grungy or edgy outfits.

2.) Straighten your angle. This is a crucial rule for achieving the right framing. Always make sure you have a straight angle with ample spacing on top, bottom, left and right. You can always crop off the excess when post-processing.

3.) Own the scene. Do your signature poses and skip the stiffness. Search for poses you might want to do, practice them, but most importantly, be confident and natural in showcasing your outfit.

Hope you got something out of my personal OOTD routine! 🙂
