I sometimes have a problem and I want to know if I am the only one. There are days when all my pictures turn out to be great, I take pictures of three outfits in the same day and love them all. There are other times when my pictures stop getting in the gallery, and I hate each and every of them!! I look ugly, or the poses are lame, or I never synchronize my body with the timer of the camera!! And I upload them on Chictopia, and then I keep deleting them!! I think it has been a week now when I hate all my new pictures. I mean, are there “talented” days with beautiful pictures and “bad” photo days? :P Does this ever happen to you?

Ugh, I know exactly what you mean! (I’m new to Chictopia, but less new to photography.) It seems like things just don’t fall into place, and other days you get so much fabulousity that you don’t know which ones to choose. :) Those are the good days.

I know what you mean. I recently took my senior pictures and it was a bad photo day. :(((

don’t let not getting into the gallery kill your love for fashion! it’s okay. just think of a standard pose and get some nice shade and a stable surface. go at it for 5-10 minutes. if you don’t like your photos, turn it off, take a break, come back! you’ll probably regret deleting an essential part of your style diary later :)

Bad photo days happen just like bad hair days! I think you have to feel confident and natural to take a good photo or else it just feels forced and the camera picks that up. We all have our days when we dont feel 100%. That’s when you go for some ice cream and a Rachel Zoe Project marathon!

WEll I have days when I put on  a cute outfit and it looks great in the mirror and then I take pictures and my outfit looks like crap.   usually those are cloudy overcast days.  I am not sure how to take a good picutre on a cloudy day.

I think it's more of a photo thing. Skilled photographers are good at getting the exact or close to exact photo they want, so it's really just a matter of practise and determination. Figure out what works best. I still struggle and find it to be a pain in the ass to get great outfit photos because I'm taking them all myself too. Just make mental notes of what works and what doesn't work, and experiment a little! Make the photography process enjoyable.

This probably happens to everybody. It sounds like you're just running dry on inspiration though. When you're inspired during a shoot, it sets the mood. I would find inspiration in the setting, your outfit, music, or maybe other photography you find online!

I had some bad photo days with good outfits,  and some boring outfits  in a good composition.   Truth is,  I'm on my own when it comes to taking pictures.   I'm too shy to visit places in public and have my pictures get taken from there...so I usually use my room and my backyard as a backdrop.  I don't even use a reflector tool either.

When I don't have time to set my tripod out for "good photo days",  I would just illustrate my outfits in drawings instead.

Sometimes the photos don't capture the essence of my outfit like how they really are in real life.  But I think my illustrations gets the spirit a lot more better! 

We are human and we can't always look "eye-candy-and-marketable" everyday.  Don't think too much about chic points, don't compare yourselves to others.   In the end,  you are really showing your ideas and dressing for yourself.  :)
