Some tips on photoshootings. Thank you http://bodmincollegemedia.blogspot.com/ for the links.
Even though editing can correct some basic issues, in order to get top marks and make professional images it is vital you do the following:
* Plan you shoot carefully
– choose models that represent your target audience
– choose costumes that represent your target audience
– plan/practice hair and make-up (mise-en-scene) in advance of the shoot
– plan you location carefully – make sure your choice is interesting, follows genre conventions and facilitates excellent images (e.g. if it is outside think about the lighting)
* Execute Your Shoot Professionally
– take time over hair and make-up (mise-en-scene) before you shoot (think about how much time this will take when organising your shoot/models etc)
– Take time setting up your location (set/props)…this will help you get shots that tell a narrative and represent your target audience creatively.
– Think About Your Lighting
