OOTD photos. Taking a photo of your outfit of the day seems like a trivial manner, but is it as easy as it looks? Being a food photographer, I’m used to receiving stares from strangers, meticulously matching every prop with the scene, being patient in finding the best angle, etc. So taking an OOTD shot like a fashion blogger should be easy, right? Or so I thought it would be.
The first time I tried to take an OOTD shot, I only got 2 good shots out of 100. I’ve gotten better at it, but sometimes it feels as hard as that first time. You need to match your clothes with your OOTD spot, plus develop a thick skin because the stares are worse compared to when you photograph food.
So after acknowledging fellow foodies in 30 Best Coffee Photography Ideas, this time I’d like to give a nod to all the fashion bloggers and OOTD enthusiasts out there. You guys are awesome. Here’s our pick of 10 Cafe and Restaurant in Jakarta for Your Next OOTD Shot.
1. Twenty Five Coffee
Twenty Five Coffee at Jalan Wijaya might be a bit unconventional choice because of its darker vibes, but those shots in front of the signature navy blue wall looks badass. Photo by @melodyamadeas & @catherinesumitri.
2. Shophaus Menteng
I guess the appropriate question is: Which OOTD enthusiast has not taken a photo at Shophaus Menteng’s spiral stairs? It is a great backdrop for any kind of outfit, really. Photo by @claudisabell, @aitanos, @joycarolines.
To take a photo of your black & white outfit, look no further than Beau’s headquarter at Cikajang. The black door is just perfect for that situation, and you can also venture to the greener side of Beau for more colors. Photo by @erick.tan & @tishakazan.
4. Ruci’s Joint
Art, Eat, and OOTD? Get all three at Ruci’s Joint. I think the only thing missing from these shots are a glass of the ultra-famous Tuku’s Kopi Susu Tetangga. Photo by @adlansyahmi & @vwxyzia.
5. Coffee Aya
We’ve seen a blogger bringing a suitcase full of clothes to Coffee Aya, so have no doubt about this pick. Everyone’s favorite spot is that corner on the second floor. Photo by @anakjajan & @shelmisetiawan.
Every inch of Monks is basically Insta-worthy, but particularly the 3rd floor. Browse Monks’ tagged photos and you’ll see that most OOTD is taken here. Photo by @irenefeliciia, @putrianjanie, @faam.
9. Guten Morgen Coffee Lab
This petite corner at Guten Morgen Coffee Lab’s outdoor area is indeed very charming, to say the least. The neutral hues will complement your clothing, no matter what the color is. Photo by @tishakazan & @laveniakazan.
10. Calibrate Coffee
For a subtle pop of color, Calibrate Coffee at Puri Indah has this baby blue wall that will give a nice accent to your shot. Photo by @nathaniaelisa & @inkangela.
That’s it! I hope you find the list useful. Maybe tag us on Instagram with your OOTD at one of these spots? ?
