Plan for Magic
Simple step-by-step plan + worksheet on how you can get ready for a conceptual photoshoot and turn a crazy idea in your head into an actual photo
You’d love to create beautiful and surreal conceptual images, but are not quite sure how to and where to start from? Should you plan everything in advance or should you just go with the flow? Should you try to capture everything as it is or try to fix everything in post, so that it looks surreal but still believable?
Here are the 3 options for step-by-step plans of how you can get ready for a conceptual photoshoot and transform your idea into an actual image. I’ve broken my exact process into small and simple actionable items. No theory, only practical tips that you can start using right away for preparing for your shoots. And not just conceptual: wedding, family, portrait or even interior ones as well. I've also included a handy planner worksheet that you can print out and use while getting ready for a particular shoot.
because your stories beg to be told and now you'll now how
Learning the process, the structure of creating art, of creating in general, actually liberates you. Because you know exactly what to do create a meaningful visual story, to get that story out of you, and tell it. It takes away the pressure, insecurities, and all those questions “I have an idea, but I don’t know how to make it work, what to do with it, how to convey it...” When you know what to do step by step, when you know how to put the pieces together, this whole pressure goes away. You still have to do all the work, but you know exactly what to do! And so you are a happy creative who is well balanced and just creates!
