What are Mood Boards and why Should I care?

mood board

noun
an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc. intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.

So there you have it.  Now, why should you care?  Because this “arrangement of images” will help the creative group (model, photographer, hair-and-make-up-artist, and anyone else) better grasp what the shoot will end up looking like.

So lets say that you are a model and you want a specific shoot with a photographer.  The idea/feeling of the shoot is in your head.  How can you get the photographer or hamua to get on the same page as you?  You could type out an active describing your vision… or just send them a link to a Pinterest mood board.  This will insure that your vision gets passed on to everyone involved.

About the author

Hello, I am Jeffrey. I live in the wonderful city of Cincinnati, Ohio! I have a passion for photography that you can feel in my pictures. If a picture is worth 1000 words, mine are worth 1001. My pictures tell a story that is behind the eyes of REAL people. People that have lived. People that have stories. People that have scars. My pictures tell that story 1001 words at a time. I believe there is beauty in all of us. My goal is to show you how beautiful you REALLY are!
