Implementing Inspiration Boards within your Photography

Implementing Inspiration Boards within your Photography

            Executing your vision as a photographer is a challenge that most photographers are faced with. So, how to do execute your vision to your client or model? What blueprint will you use to strength your visuals?  Using inspirations boards will give you the photographer clear indication of what you want to convey in your photo-shoot. These are super fun to create and are easy to make as well!

I’ve seen many photographers making inspiration boards based of themed conceptual shoots. Example themes I’ve seen are GOOD VS EVIL, HIPPY HIGH SOCK THEME, BOHO THEME, basically anything the has a clear and focused concept.

What’s an Inspiration board?

A collection of images put together as a collage to give a photographer and the client visual representation of what’s expected for their shoot. Inspiration boards also can be used to show the cilent how to dress and mix and match outfits as well.

How do I make an Inspiration Board?

For mines I use a tool called blogstomp. It’s a program that allows you to make collages easy and fast! I go on Pinterest and the type what I’m looking for. For example if I’m looking for men’s fashion images, Boho photos, summer fashion, fitness photo etc. I grab the photos I love a combine them together.

 Inspiration Boards Can be Used in Multi-ways

These are not only for photographers make-up artist can used these as well! To send to clients so that they can pick what images from they like to get an idea of what kind of make-up the client wants.  insipration boards also can be used by any creative artist, web designers, graphic designers etc.

PLEASE NOTE INSPIRATION BOARDS ARE GUIDES TO HELP WITH YOUR VISION . I DON'T RECOMMEND GOING STRICTLY BY YOUR INSPIRATION BOARDS. USE THEM TO GET A GENERAL IDEA OF YOUR VISION AND BUT USE YOUR OWN SIGNATURE STYLE ON THEM
