The temperature is dropping, the leaves are falling from the trees and it’s time to start thinking about refreshing your e-portfolio with some eye-catching winter photography.
As you do so, think about working some of this year’s winter trends into your pictures and get ready to upload some great new shots with you looking wrapped up and ready for the new season.
Think about your backgrounds too – where can you go to reflect the new season in all its crisp and wintry wonder?
Then start putting together one or two outfits at home, mixing and matching to really catch a sense of what models are wearing on catwalks and what is popular out there on the high street.
For example, colour blocking is still bold this winter 2022 and the shades they are wearing include green and pink.
Greens can be anything from lime green and emerald to basil and sage, but be big, bold and wear it in abundance.
Pink is also right up there in terms of popularity – and here we’d say the hotter the better!
If you don’t want to warm the winter up with copious amounts of hot pink then try to accessorise with it – opt for a hot pink scarf, cardigan or belt.
As ever, layering remains a key trend this winter – look out for black cut-out tops or white vest tops with tasselled or fringed over layers and then perhaps another piece of knitwear or a denim jacket above that.
To keep warm while you are out there taking your winter modelling photography, bomber jackets are still big this season as are heavily ribbed cardigans.
But before you wrap up your seasonal shoot, why not think about including one or two festive looks?
Put together a festive backdrop, ensure you’ve got some great lighting to create just the right ambience, then put on something special to make sure you sparkle!
Female models, let’s have something elegant and stylish, perhaps a black, red or green dress, lifted with a few carefully chosen accessories.
And male models, let’s see how well you brush up in a dinner jacket, suit or other smart casual look that you might wear at Christmas.
Having topical and seasonal imagery within your e-portfolio shows us and our clients that you are on top of your photography, keeping things up to date for us and working hard to ensure you stand out from all the other models and would-be models out there.
