I thought that having my own custom palette would speed up my morning routine, so that I would have all my basic eye and cheek colours in one place. If travelling, all my essentials would already be in one palette, so I wouldn’t have to take as many products with me. Sounds like a good idea, right? The problem was, most of my favourite products were not designed to be put in a palette...
It’s no secret that I have a lot of clients with their own blogs or YouTube channels, and in most cases it’s the first time they’ve worked with a professional photographer. It can a little daunting to have a stranger pointing a DSLR at you when you’re used to your mum or significant other taking your photos. What are you supposed to wear? How do you pose? I appreciate that it might be overwhelming, so I thought I’d write this post or anyone who’s thinking of investing in a photoshoot soon… and no, it doesn’t have to be with me! (But, you know, I’m pretty good. Just saying.)
For as long as I’ve been creating content, I’ve always had one particular struggle, and I’m curious to see if this affects anyone else.The problem is that I’m a massive perfectionist. I have an obsessive need to make everything I produce a certain standard, and usually end up feeling drained and exhausted as a result. This can make producing regular content very difficult as tasks take much longer than they probably should.
Hi, I'm Alice, and I really like cameras. Photography is seriously expensive - whether you consider it a hobby, or a career. I'm lucky enough to already have most of the equipment I could possibly need, but when you're using a camera that's a few years old it's easy to start eyeing up the newer models.
