Wirestock's top picks for May!

Published on April 15, 2020

To help you know what concepts and subjects to base your work here's a list of high-demand content for May.

Remember Wirestockers, for the best results, your content should include individuals of diverse ages, ethnicities, genders, abilities, and body types. Keep your model releases as well as property releases for recognizable locations loaded!

Given the circumstances of the COVID19 global pandemic, this month's edition will concern everything inside the home. This May we are focusing on rooms and unique furniture, family time, decorative food, and working remotely.

Now is the time to show off your homes! This month we will look for interesting and cozy interior design. Some ideas are: 

  • Unique furniture (bright colors, creative design).
  • Cozy spaces in the home (throw pillows, candles, fireplaces).
  • Interesting Kitchens (think about the details that bring family together). 

Remember if you are including any copyrighted objects including books, or artwork, you will need a property release. Also, aim to shoot concepts (warmth, coziness, creativity).


Family & Friends

Now is the time to think about themes surrounding your loved ones. 

  • Portraits of loved ones alone or engaged in simple activities (games, puzzles, reading).
  • Togetherness (cooking together, working on an art project, helping one another around the house).
  • Your pets! Particularly photos that show the connection you have with them will be sought after this month. 


Decorative Food

This month for food photograpahers will be exciting. If you are shooting your recipes and meals try and include:

  • Bright colors (fresh vegetables and fruits in a variety of colors).
  • Trending foods (vegan and health food recipes).
  • Creative displays and backgrounds. (Be conscious about what you include in the shot).


Remote Work

Now that many of us are working from home, photos of what that lifestyle is really like will be in high demand. 

  • Shoot details of your "home office". How have you adapted your home to work from home? (Coffee mugs, desks, plants).
  • Think about themes. Themes such as balance, flexibility, and distraction will all be popular this month. 
  • The background: visuals of your kids playing, or your pets in the background of the shot. Photos depicting the authenticity of what working from home is actually like will be popular this month. 


Stay Healthy and Good luck shooting!
