Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at a photo shoot? In today’s blog post, we open up about all the fun details!
From deciding what outfit will go with a certain garment to selecting a well-composed background for a specific shot, so many little decisions go into each photo you see printed in one of our magazines. Whether we’re adjusting the lighting or fixing a model’s hair, we do our best to make each photo pop.
It takes a team of people to pull it off. In the snapshot below, you can see our Editor-in-Chief and Art Director standing watch behind the camera, ready to jump into action when need be. JC, our talented photographer, is busy taking photos as our Graphic Designer holds up a light reflector.
The model is hidden in the previous photo, but you can see her from a different angle here. She’s wearing a gorgeous top that is scheduled to appear in our Spring Issue. We can’t wait for you to see this beautiful knitting pattern once it is published!
It may seem like a simple process, but there are so many things to think about during a photo shoot. We want to show you how a garment drapes on the body, and we also try to get close-up shots of stitch patterns as well so you can have a helpful visual guide as you knit the pattern.
Because we take photographs for our Spring Issue during the winter, we need to brainstorm ways to make each photo feel spring-like, even if the temperature is below freezing and the ground happens to be covered in crusty snow that day. It takes some creative thinking to make it all come together, but we have a lot of fun in the process!
