This fantasy photoshoot was such a blast, with the bed of flowers (literally), distressed thrifted book, handmade couture, thrifted lace and butterflies in the hair…

A dream come true!

 

Spring is here, and hopefully we’re all working hard to be safe.

Whether we’re still working or have been quarantined, let’s keep safe, stay hydrated, and make time to enjoy the start of spring as much as we can.

It’s the beauty of the little things in nature that matter, our chosen families that are at our sides.

Be safe, stay hydrated, enjoy nature.

This cosplay of Sabrina from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was such a great way to spend the afternoon!

This wedding dress from the photography wardrobe was perfect for a Dark Baptism and was a great fit for a Sabrina Spellman cosplay

This shoot was also the perfect time to shoot with the old Nikon DSLR and test out the studio’s new SD card reader, which transfers raw images from the DSLR right into my phone for editing!

What photo shoots have you been dying to do lately? Any cosplays in the works?

Portrait Photography Must-Haves| Best Additions to the Photography Studio

In this list you’re going to find my favorite additions to the photography studio over the last ten years, big and small.

♥️📷♥️

Before I get started on my favorite photography equipment, I highly encourage you to start small! You get get started with some basic photography equipment listed here!

♥️📷♥️

Everyone’s favorite tools and equipment and accessories for their work are personal, here’s mine:

Photography Equipment

  • DSLR body: Start out with a basic body. I still love my kit camera from 10 years ago, it’s a Nikon D3100 with my upgrade being a D3300.
  • Glass: I’ve become a sucker for fast prime lenses in this small studio. My favorites are 85mm f/1.8 and my 50mm lens.
  • Ring light: Perfect for smaller studio spaces.
  • Continuous Lighting: I love lightweight floor lamps with daylight LED bulbs.
  • Flashguns and umbrellas: These have given me my most luscious lighting, but not my favorite option in a cramped studio.
  • Remote Trigger Release: This has been indispensable. I almost always use this one but I also have a few other versions depending on the shooting situation. It prevents a LOT of running back and forth.
  • Polarizing Filters: Remember to choose quality so you’re not degrading the quality of your images. Not only will these handy filters boost colors and reduce glare, they’ll help keep your lenses safe from scratches.
  • Rechargeable Batteries: Extra points if you use a solar panel to charge these.
  • PS and Lightroom: I bought PS CS5 for my computer back when Adobe wasn’t subscription based. I use the free Lightroom app on my IPod to edit my mobile shots.
  • Computer: Editing photography on a laptop isn’t ideal (depending who you ask) but it frees up a lot of space in the studio. If buying a computer, research ahead to see if it’s a good option for photography.
  • Monitor Color Calibrator: Calibrate your monitor and, in your editing program, use the best color space when editing and saving. Plenty of great tutorials for this online.
  • Backdrops: aka: Blankets, curtains, etc outfitted with safety pins to hang from nails on the wall. Check out your local thrift shop to see what colors, textures, patterns and prints you can find.
  • Mobile Camera: Gorgeous shots are absolutely possible on a smartphone and other devices. Many of my portraits have been taken with my iPod, and I now almost exclusively take photos with my camera phone. It’s a great way to experiment and get different shots before shooting the same look with a DSLR, or to do an entire shoot.
  • Mobile Camera Accessories: Tripods, selfie sticks, and clip on polarizing filters/lenses and other accessories are available for mobile devices.
  • Flash Drives: You’ve worked hard to create your work, be sure to save copies somewhere off your computer.

There you have it!
