Themed Photoshoot Inspiration: Outdoor Fitness and Hiking


Do you love being outdoors, working on your fitness, or hiking in nature? If you’ve ever considered doing a photoshoot then here’s some inspiration for you! It doesn’t matter if you’re thinking of a casual hike or a more fitness-oriented hike; just get out there, have fun, and take some photographs!

 

CASUAL HIKING PHOTOSHOOT

Here are some helpful/inspirational ideas for a casual hiking photoshoot:

  • wear comfy clothes
  • use props like a canteen or camping thermos
  • grab a backpack and fill it with yummy food and drinks
  • don’t be afraid to take on a relatively difficult hiking trail
  • get close up shots of you sitting
  • take photos of the surrounding by itself
  • don’t be afraid to get smiling shots

 

ATHLETIC HIKING PHOTOSHOOT

Here are some helpful/inspirational ideas for a casual hiking photoshoot:

  • wear comfy athletic wear and a great pair of runners: colour helps you pop out from the scenery
  • tie your hair back for action shots (e.g. running)
  • pick a relatively cool day to do this photoshoot since you’ll be doing more moving
  • find a relatively easy hiking trail so you avoid twisted ankles and other possible accidents
  • get photos of you climbing, running, jumping, jogging, etc.

 

Bonus advice: if it’s really sunny, try to stay in the shade. Not only will that keep you cooler, but it’ll also preserve your dynamic range and prevent highlight blowouts!
