I wanted to take the time to thank everyone for uploading such AMAZING photos to our site. With that said, one question Chictopia users often ask is “how do I take a good photo for the style gallery?”
Here are some tips:
LIGHTING. A good source of lighting is an outdoor/ vibrant setting. Sure, its easier to just take one in your room, but you’d be surprised how much people get out of the idea that you gasp actually wear these great outfits outside (rather than playing dress up in your house). If you live in a house with excellent lighting, that is OK too. We’re talking strictly style gallery here.
Picture quality. We are not those other style sites here. We are all about good quality images. And its always funner to see something that isn’t grainy, cropped, etc. Don’t you think?
Heads. Ok, this is something that I realize some people might not be comfortable with. But there are plenty of ways to hide your face with sunglasses, turning your head to the side, looking down. A head is… kinda part of the outfit. So yeah, we are very into heads. Headless photos=no style gallery. Sorry.
Hope those tips help! Keep up the fantastic work!
