A lookbook is a book of images, the most important and key examples of a collection. The lookbook shows that with what to wear and combine, the development of the image as a whole.

Stages of preparation for stylized shooting

Idea. We determine what we or the customer wants to do: goal, idea.
Mudboard. We create a mudboard.
Command. We recruit a team.
Counting budget and time. Each team member considers how much time and money it will take for his part of the work.
TK. Clearly form TK.
Training. Preparation for shooting according to the ToR.
Shooting. And only after all this – shooting!
Idea. How to define a visual idea for shooting?

We ask leading questions to the client. Who is the consumer of the product? What mood do we want to create? How did the idea of ​​creation come about? What feelings or emotions do we want from people who see the photo? And other leading questions.

After leading questions, we begin to propose ideas on how we see the shooting and how we can create it.

* If the team does not have an art director and we need to take on his role

Mudboard. Once you have identified the idea of ​​shooting, you need to create a mudboard.

A mudboard is a collage of pictures that visually reflect the idea and concept of shooting. Visual examples of the atmosphere we want to convey should be shown in the mudboard:

in style of clothes, accessories and details
locations, compositions, dynamics, color combinations
in processing, lighting examples
type of model and her poses
in hairstyle and makeup
in general impressions and mood
All this is very important. The team must understand what feelings you want to convey and what is required of them.
