Preparing for a Shoot

Video Shoot Preparation

Knowing what to and not to do before a photo or video shoot is imperative for successful results. From keeping everyone who is involved fully informed, to fulfilling shoot goals and purposes, success all starts with proper preparation. For readying properly for your next shoot, follow these few tips from our professionals at Cut ‘N’ Run Studios on necessary steps for proper preparation.

-Make a Check List

Keep everyone informed and ready. From your shoot producer, to your stylist, everyone involved needs to remain informed at all times. Whether any alterations or rescheduling are major or minor, everyone should be informed. This will keep all on the same track, which will also keep things in order as the shoot proceeds.

-Be Theme & Clothing Conscious

Whether your everyday clothing look is put together based on fashionista critiques or whatever is clean and pulled out first from the hamper, being clothing conscious for your shoot is important. The clothing worn in your shoot should help emphasize the idea or theme you are attempting to get across. Your clothing should also compliment captured surroundings. If your background is red for instance, do not wear the color unless you are trying to blend in.

-Consider Your Health

Celebrate after the shoot. Unless the theme of your shoot is post-party hangover, prepare yourself health wise beforehand. The day before your shoot, getting enough rest, a good workout, and proper nourishment and hydration will go far in feeling fresh and ready to go for the big day. This, again, goes for everyone involved no matter the size of their part.

-Rehearse

Perfect practice makes perfect. Rehearsing scenes, poses, et cetera well before the day of the shoot is imperative for an easy flow during it. Whether rehearsing for you means practicing expressions in the mirror or running times lines, do whatever it takes to remain in control during the real shoot.
