What to Wear During Photo Shoots

By Seyra Rico - 3:22 PM

Hiya, everyone! We're almost done with the first quarter of 2016, and this month is brimming with activities. There was a weekend where I judged a fashion event, attended a friend's birthday celebration until 6am, then did this shoot at 10 am. No complaints though!

So when my photographer friend and comrade, Naj Gamora, suggested I join one of his shoots. I said yes immediately. I'm a fashion blogger, why would I say no? The team was fantastic. Everyone was really helpful, and they did their best to make the models feel at ease in front of the camera. I was shy since it's my first time to do a shoot with a team. (I usually ask my friends and sisters take my photos. Woah, I'm not a hobbyist blogger anymore. Woah.) Even Ruth, the make-up artist, did her best to hide the dark circles under my eyes because I partied all night.

Now, I'm slowly revealing my blogging secrets, and I'm giving my take on what to wear when you have a long day of photo shoot ahead. Should you wear a dress? Or a top and bottom? I chose this formless maxi dress because of its semi-loose fit which allows me to change clothes quickly. This can also apply when shopping because of the vast amount of clothes you'll be fitting into. I also chose to wear a slip-on sandals so I can get in and out of everything with the ultimate ease. This looks strappy, but you can get your feet off without unhooking the clasp. As you've noticed, accessories are minimal, because they tend to get thrown around and lost. Yay!
