Tips for photo shooting in swimsuits for the first time
Yesterday I did photo shooting at the studio at Omotesando Tokyo Japan. This is my second time for shooting by the photographer whom one of my friend introduced to me and made an appointment.
Since I had no idea for posing last time (I was in a dress, not swimsuits ), I searched on web and collected the poses I like. I was going to do after them. I also made a music mix that we can listen to during the shooting.
We started shooting with what I prepared, but no no.. Not a good shot..
Finally, photographer changed music and gave me directions. Also changed background from white to gray. Good. Turned out all right.

Tips for taking a good shot
Get ready for music you like so it will help you fell relax and comfortable.
Wear what you actually have worn before. If you want to wear new one, wear many times at home before shooting.
I recommend high heel. If you choose your skin color’s pair, that look part of your top of feet and stretch your legs.
If you can, invite somebody at the studio. You can feel relax and have a good facial expression.
Prepare many poses in your mind. You can practice in front of mirror at home.
- Alcohol drink
Do not drink alcohol drink few days before. It helps you keep from swelling.
Talk with your photographer, Tell the photographer what you want. Ask questions what you do not know.
It should be fun!
