With all this content I produce as you read in my last blog post, you may be wondering if a photographer follows me around all day with a camera. Nope! Not the case. Anytime I create content, there’s a location I’ve scouted often with an outfit I’ve created with that space in mind. Sometimes, I just choose an outfit and explore for a location. Those times I get lucky and it just “works.” I book my photographer with a specific time and day, we head to the location and shoot anywhere from 100-400+ pics each outfit (of which I select 10). We shoot quickly and we rarely spend more than an hour shooting. We clearly got the shots after sixty minutes has passed but my mind often thinks of more wild and crazy poses and angles I need to get. I literally cannot get enough. I never want it to end.
There are times when I feel like shooting on the whim. And there are times when I’m traveling and don’t have a photographer with me. The great thing is, there is always a way to create content if you’re not fortunate enough to have photographers around. When there is a will, there’s a way.
So, I’m going to let you in on a little secret and share what I use in hopes that it will help you! [Small tangent: I want you all to win. If you have people in your life that are not willing to share their secrets or give to you as much as you give to them, or not help you along your way in any way they can, I suggest you reevaluate your relationship. These people will use and abuse you and take take take. This is not how you win. Winning is sharing and helping others where and when you can without feeling jealous, insecure or scared that they will do it better or “win” more than you. There’s enough to go around y’all].
