Long holds, trying not to slip, special themes! There are so many things to think about while planning your first Pole Dancing Photo Shoot. Here are some tips and tricks for a stress free, fun photo shoot.
Choosing your Photographer
There are so many great photographers out there but not all of them are great for pole photo shoots if they have never done one before. You need to capture certain shots from one angle that looks best and if you have a back drop set up this may require you to adjust yourself to the exact position on perhaps leave the pole on spin and get a helper to turn you to the exact angle. You will also want to choose a photographer who is good with capturing action shots. Always ask to view your photographers portfolio so you can get idea of how your photos will look.
If you are willing to be patient and direct your shoot a little bit more you can always find a student photographer who is building their portfolio to work with.
Choosing What to wear
It can be hard to narrow it down to an outfit or two but remember less is more. Try choosing a theme for your photo shoot to make it clear and concise from the makeup, hair to costume. Photo shoots are fun for wearing those outrageous to much for class items, such as sequin bras, studded and crystallized heels and sexier and risqué outfits. Have fun choosing your outfit and try and make sure that your outfit and background go and make sense together.
Whether you are choosing poses on the pole, the floor or mid air you always want to make sure the photographer is getting your best angle. There are some really great tricks out there that are super impressive, but how do you look in that pose. Try choosing poses that fit for your body type lengthening your body and catching all of your best angles an assets. Try applying minimum dry hands as it will show up white and streaky on the pole and on your skin and can be tricky to photo shop. You may have to hold that pose longer than you have ever held it in your life, make sure to properly warm up and stay hydrated throughout your shoot.
