Prepping things up.
When currently in the process of trying to work with a professional makeover photographer, you need to know that prepping things up will turn out to be the key to your success as a subject as well as a client in the said photo shoot. It will not be purely dependent on the abilities and skills alone of your professional makeover photographer. At some point or so, he is going to need your help in seeing things through one way or the other. You need to know for sure that this is the type of thing that you will be able to follow through with at the end of the day. Here are a few things to help you out a bit when you are still in the process of figuring things out.
Choose your look ahead of time.
This is not the type of thing that you will be able to leave up to chance and to be honest, the photo shoot will turn out to be a one-time deal so don’t even take the chance of not ensuring that you are able to come out looking like the best version of yourself during the photo shoot. Your professional makeover photographer will only be able to do so much but if you don’t have a set idea or decision on the kind of look that you would like to go ahead and request for in the first place, it will be very hard for him to string through the rest of the makeover photo shoot when it all comes down to it.
What kind of look are you going for as a subject?
Remember that this is your photo shoot so you actually have control over how the photos are supposed to pan out at the end of the day. You can go for something light and casual or for something formal and posed, similar to how photos are being placed in the glossy magazines. It all boils down to a matter of preference and style. Just decide on what you would like to get in the first place and try to establish that early on during the makeover photo shoot so that your photographer actually has some solid material to go ahead and work with one way or the other.
Get a haircut
If you are planning to get a haircut or something major before the actual makeover photo shoot, give yourself a few days to grow into the look and to get used to it. you might not always like what you get right off the bat which is why doing this a few days before the shoot can really work out in your favor because what it means is that you will technically still have time to change it up a bit to something that will make you a little bit more comfortable with the look. But then again, doing anything drastic will defeat the entire purpose of the makeover photo shoot in the first place so you might as well go ahead and avoid any major changes altogether.
