Well, going for a photoshoot is always very exciting; so is the packing for the same. Here, I have summed up a list of few must carry things for a satisfactory photoshoot experience.
Wet wipes– Wet wipes are very useful to make your face look fresh. If you are supposed to shoot in a very polluted area, keep using them time to time. It will be an added advantage If you have aroma wipes.
Makeup– Having a makeup kit with you assures that you will not have weird or incomplete shots. In case you don’t want to carry the whole kit, you can carry necessary things like eye liner, lip gloss, sunscreen and body lotion. Don’t worry, your effort will really be fruitful for you.
Jewellery– Using jewellery or some other prop may help a lot in blooming your character. Try to utilize some jewelry which is compatible with the mood of your character in the photoshoot. You may try some new experiments as well but if you are not sure about the results, prefer using the props you have been using already.
Water / Juice/ Energy drink– To protect yourself from dehydration, sickness and other problems, carry water/ juice or the energy drink along with other things in your bag. Having sips of such things time to time will keep you fresh and you’ll be able to concentrate more on your photoshoot. Further at the end of the day you wouldn’t be much tired.
Refreshment- If you think, you have a small bowel and consuming more liquid may be problematic for you, then prefer having some snacks with you. In that case too don’t forget to have some paper soap leafs and sanitizer with you.
Extra pair of undergarments– Chances are there that you may sweat much when you are having outdoor photoshoots. Having an extra pair of undergarments will save from rushing on eleventh hours.
Extra pair of costume- Your costume may get dirty from tracking so having having an extra pair of costume will keep you on safe side. If you are having a day long photoshoot, then it is a must have thing.
Mat– Carry a mat with you so that you may take power naps or some rest when you are tired. This will help you rejuvenate and in result you will see drastic change in your overall performance. In case you are out for a day long photoshoot, it is a must have accessory.
Umbrella- Carry an umbrella, if you are supposed to have a photoshoot in sunlight. This will protect you from skin tanning as well as sweating. Although it may seem very outdated in terms of creativity, but its true that you can use it as a prop for photoshoot as well.
Shades- Last but not the least thing to carry is shades. This will protect your eyes from direct sunlight, keep them cool as well as give a character to your photos, in case you want to use it as a prop.
So, you are all set for a photoshoot now. Pack your bag! go outside and Enjoy photography! 🙂
