When you shoot this type of photography do you let them bring their own outfits, or do you bring outfits, or do you both go shopping for an outfit? Do you let the girl typically choose the poses and such, or do you generally pic them out, or do you both kinda just do whatever and pic what looks good? I've always been curious what these types of shoots are like doing.
This is a great shot of a beautiful model in a really cool outfit.
How do you pic the locations as well? Do you have them planned based on being there before and liking how it looked, or do you just pic a random place, like a park or pool, and shoot wherever it looks cool?
Most of the time I have the model bring a suitcase and we go through it together. Few times I have taken them shopping. As far as location, it's either my studio, or mostly outdoor locations that I use.
Now a lot of other factors go into it as well. Fashion shoot will generally have a wardrobe. Bikini shoot usually has a pool or a tropical vibe. Just depends on what the client is looking for.
I don't like cliche posing. Bores me so I tend to try to make the models look as natural as possible.
