Requested Content in June
We are excited to release the very first shot list for our global contributors.
Enjoy the guide to the themes for June 2022.
Party Images with Diverse Props
It's always joyful to have people around. Parties are the best part of the gatherings and events. Birthday parties, bridal showers, and other various types of parties are popular these days as people want to take more time to share emotions with their beloved ones.
A great way to visually express the excitement of parties is using diverse props. The falling confetti in the air can show the dynamics and activeness. Garlands can make your photo showier. Give more details to the party table using the deco-picks on the food and drinks. And make the image more realistic by adding wrapped gifts on the side, colorful balloons, and people holding cone hats.
Neon Signs in the City
Did you know that the best month for shooting night views is June in Korea? In June, we have less fine dust in the air than in other months, so you can take photos of distant subjects clearly. What about capturing the exciting nightlife of the city with neon signs in this time of being back to normal?
There can be many kinds of night views with neon signs. The lyrical side of the reflected neon signs in the puddle after rain, multicolored neon signs in the street that attract the walkers, the moment when lights are being turned on one by one at 'golden hour'.
One of the most effective ways to visually represent the summer season is by using imaginal elements and stimulating the viewers. We suggest you capture tactile materials for the coming summer.
It is good to fill the screen with props to give it a rich feeling, but bringing out creative results by making the screen simple yet sophisticated is also a great idea. Sand, seashells, and dried coral are props associated with summer, that are reminiscent of the refreshing and cool image of the beach. Make the viewers feel like leaving for summer vacation with the bags and accessories made of rattan material, and the botanical concept props made of palm trees and monstera leaves.
Summer Season Ingredients
It is extremely important to shoot the ingredients that will be used a lot in two or three months due to the nature of stock photography. According to 'The Food & Beverage News', the main seasonal ingredients for July are cutlassfish, bellflower root, blueberry, shishito pepper, and peach.
Creatively putting such ingredients is the key. The photos showing the pure blueberries were popular before. But now in 2022, the photos of blueberry salads are being sold more and more. The images of food or desserts made with peaches are rare. So, be the first to show 'summer' with extraordinary desserts such as peach pies, Greek momo, and peach compote. Plus, there are many cases where customers don't get the search results for what they're looking for due to the lack of accurate keywords. This gives us a lesson: when you take photos of unique ingredients such as 'shishito pepper', make sure you put the exact name of it in the keywords so your content can appear when needed, and make sales.
