Take It to The Next Level
Last part of How to Improve Your OOTD! By now I hope you'll find your OOTD photos to be better :)
But why settle for better if you can get the best right? A few tips of mine to take your OOTD photos to the next level.
I love posing in front of a door because it frames your outfit making the eyes focus instantly to you. Doors are relatively easy to find. An arch of some sort works too!
Make It Artistic
Bridges, row of fences, windows, stairs, stacks of books, mirrors.. Those are the kind of things you want to keep an eye off to take your outfit to the next level.

Play with Angle
Instead of the usual eye-level, ask your photographer to take your picture from up or below. Taking picture from above will make you look slimmer but shorter. Taking from below, will make you look taller but careful of chubby cheeks!

People love flowers. You should too. Use it in the background or use it as a prop. I find people respond greatly to photos with flowers no matter what the season is.

Shooting indoors requires sharpening and brightening (go easy or you'll have grainy photos). I like to add contrast as well for depth. But be careful because adding contrast usually costs details. My favorite Iphone apps are Hello Camera and Vscocam.
Go Out There (Travel More!)
Some of my favorite OOTD photos are from my travelling photos because the background is so different from my usual day to day scenes. So there's no excuse to dress sloppy while on a holiday!
Make It Colorful
Black and white creates more drama and personality but personally I prefer outfit photos to be colorful. Perhaps that's explain why I love prints so much.

I enjoyed very much sharing all of these tips. I should hope you find them to be informative and apply some of them! :)
Have a great weekend, all
