51 Fashion Post Ideas For The Camara Shy Blogger

Monday, 8 May 2017

Hi, my name is Aycan and I am camera shy.

There is nothing more mood changing than when you're having fun with your friends, and someone gets far too excited and says "ohhh, let's take a photo." Seriously, why did they have to ruin all the fun? I was perfectly happy knowing how I looked would be a distant memory, but now there is photographic evidence that will haunt me for eternity.

I think the only time I am happy can tolerate an impromptu photography session is when the photos are taken on my device, taken from the shoulders up, and preferably a snapchat filter with a very large animal covering my face. As you can tell, I am not a fan of being in front of the camera.

When I started my blog way back when, my initial idea was to blog mainly about fashion. I've grown up with fashion, studied it, make it, I just know fashion very, very well. So, the time came to start working on my fashion posts and... I'm pretty sure you know where this story is going. I didn't feel like I could class myself as a "fashion blogger" because all I was putting out was outfit flatlays. They didn't get much of a response, (well nothing I blogged back then did), so I stopped talking about fashion, but I now feel like a change.

Don't get me wrong, fashion is of course about style, and sharing your outfit is a great way to express that, but this isn't the only way you can inspire your readers.

- FLATLAYS

- YOUR WARDROBE

- ILLUSTRATIONS

- HIGH STREET STORES

- STREET STYLE

- STYLE A FRIEND

- JUST GET CREATIVE

Like the last point says, just get creative. Even if you love your outfit shoots, but not sure what to write alongside it, these post ideas are perfect for you too. I have also written a fashion post ideas guide, catered more for the camera lovers. Don't feel like you're restricted to sharing an outfit post. You may not feel confident enough in front of the camera (yet), but love fashion, so hopefully these post ideas will inspire you to post more about fashion, or even start!
