A photo shoot in a blooming field
From blue skies and sunset reflections in the clouds to a blooming riot of colour and vast green oceans blowing in the breeze. Haystacks in the sun-drenched expanse, the gold of ripened bread. All this is about the fields, so different but always beautiful and dear to the soul. There is something inexplicably beautiful in the pictures taken in such places.
Take your mind off the hustle and bustle of city life, relive precious moments of unity with nature and get original picturesque shots.
Preparing for your field photo shoot: Image and style.
How you look is one of the determining factors for success. It's not a question of working hard on your looks the day before, reducing yourself to a ghostly ideal - an experienced photographer will reveal in each character its character, identity and beauty. But the wrong choice of clothing, accessories and hairstyle can ruin everything.
What should be the hairstyle, jewellery and makeup if you plan a photo shoot in the field?
The main priority is naturalness.
1. Avoid the patched-on comb-over, the complicated hairstyles, the gel, the false strands - they look ridiculous in the bosom of nature. But not embracing the hairstyle is also a mistake. Light curls, secured with varnish, braids, waves and just straight, healthy and clean hair are the best option. While it's not a bad idea to re-colour your hair, don't opt for a brave experiment the night before.
2. jewellery or jewellery could be either nonexistent or miniaturised. Ornaments made of wood or natural stones should look good.
3 Light, nude make-up. No need for a smoky ace, bright lips, but if poppies or other plants are in bloom you can afford a red lipstick and a noticeable blush. Concentrate on flawless relief and colour, a clean and clear look.
4. Avoid plucking eyebrows, getting a perm or waxing the day before. Rather do a moisturising mask, take a bath and a good night's sleep and do all the skin-traumatic procedures a week before the photo shoot.
Contacting a professional make-up artist is the preferred option. Don't forget to take a mirror, powder, matting and moist towelettes with you. Accessories for your nature photo shoot may include straw hats, sunglasses, umbrellas, plaids, baskets, picnic kits, kites and soap bubbles.
Clothing for the "field trip" photo shoot.
If you are planning a 'Family Look', 'LAVESTORI' or a casual one-on-one shoot with a model without a clear concept, the clothes should be:
1. Preferably monochromatic: no prints, tacky lettering or labels.
3. A colour combination with each other and the surrounding scenery: so if daisies are in bloom, jeans and a white shirt will be just right, and if you're taking a photo in lilac lupines, something brighter in tone will do. Natural colours are your best allies.
Stick to the three colour rule - there shouldn't be more in your or your overall image. Take a few options with you to ensure variety and a quick change of outfit in case the one you originally chose doesn't quite fit the overall composition.
If you plan to recreate a concept, you can't do without the help of a professional makeup artist or special attributes of the chosen style. In the field, you can beautifully play up a rustic theme, ancient Russia, the kolkhoz of the middle of the last century. Girls can become nymphs, butterflies, children - bees, and the city family can try on state farm work. The main thing is your imagination and willingness to work on your image and the style of the frame.
I should note that fields may be different: wild and cultivated, flowery and not, with agricultural machinery and stacks or without them. When talking to the photographer, it's worth clarifying exactly which location you have in mind.
