So I thought this would be an interesting topic to cover and to see how everyone else does it!
My aim when I shoot my makes is to have everything as clear as possible and for the clothes to look the best they can. I’m lucky that I live by myself so that I can turn my living room into a mini photo studio whenever I want!
My camera is a Fujifilm X100T which I got in March earlier this year. It’s a beautiful camera and an upgrade from the Fujifilm X100 I was using previously. The main reason for the upgrade was to have a camera with wifi which sounds ridiculous until you realise how I’m actually taking my photos…
So this is my set up at home:
Light is important for here as I don’t get a lot of natural light so I got a couple of cheap soft box lights off Amazon. They pack away completely so they don’t get in the way too much. They aren’t the sturdiest though but the price was just too good to resist! £32 for the 2 stands, umbrella/ soft boxes and 2 bulbs – bargain!
If you haven’t guessed already, I use the wifi camera remote app to actually take the photos. I don’t have anyone on hand to take them for me! It’s a pretty neat way to do it, the only downside being that you can see I’m holding my phone in most of my photos! It’s the ultimate selfie!!
So those are my photo taking secrets!
How do you take yours? Selfie in the mirror? Or do you get a loved one/ whoever is standing closest to you to take them for you?
