I start this Monday morning with a wonderful energy and inspiration in my body!
I am in fact planning a major purchase with camera stuff to get nice makeup pictures for the blog! Then I will be able to take photos even now when it is so dark outside. It is about 10 in the morning and it is still too dark to take pictures, and around 2 pm it is already too late.
But now I have received help from Photographer Niklas Lundengård who has written a shopping list with everything I need to be able to take nice pictures at home no matter how dark it is outside, all adapted to my needs. Nice huh? :)
Some things are out of stock but will come in again this week, so I'll just wait for it then I'll go shopping! It will be so much fun and I hope that the pictures will be even better here in the blog then!
The reason I am writing this now, is so that you can make wishes purely photographically before I shop, what do you like about my pictures now and what do you not like? For example, I personally prefer the white background that I have now (I take my pictures against a white wall) and thought of buying a white background for my little "studio", but what do you think?
Here is my "photo studio" right now, a white wall that is not much wider than me (it is not really a wall but just the side of a wardrobe) and the remote shutter release! The camera stands on a high chest of drawers in front of the window in front of me.
Although the remote shutter release I have in the picture is broken now, so I have quite recently bought a new one actually. I was going to take pictures of my nails and wanted a picture where both hands were visible at the same time - which is not super easy when you are alone. So I put the remote shutter release in my mouth and bit the button when the camera was going to take pictures haha, which of course resulted in me eventually dropping it on the floor so that it broke… But I got nice pictures :)
Hope you also have a good start to the week!
