When the Queen locks eyes with you, what will you do?
A few more boudoir portraits left in this fantasy set, what more is there to see?
The next photoshoot has us back to sultry blues….which is your favorite?
Artist burnout is real.
And to be honest, sometimes our response is to work even harder.
Take time to rest.
And when you start making art again, try something different.
Slightly new, or wildly different from the art you usually create.
Try a new technique, a different strategy, use different tools. Get your heart excited again.
How do you bounce back after creative burnout?
I absolutely adore doing portraits lying down.
It makes it so much easier to style the hair and get this soft, flowy look that I love in photography.
If you haven’t shot your model lying down, I highly suggest it! Play and experiment!
This thrifted dress was such a gorgeous find for the photography studio!
It pairs so well with the bright summer makeup and the florals.
What’s your favorite prop to shoot with in the photography studio?
I’m in love with these dusty pastel pinks.
The studio is still really cramped, but I’m feeling inspired to try and make the most of my limited space in the photography studio!
How do you make the most of shooting in a small space?
Join us on the BlessedShadows YouTube channel for more fantasy makeup and cosplay tutorials!
What style would you love to see next?
Goth, grudge, or more fairytale?
Did you know that the BlessedShadows Etsy shop is stocked with fantasy headdresses to fit every costume and mood?
Grab your favorite pair of horns and become a goddess!
Have monsters that need slaying?
Sounds like you’re in need of a Witcher.
I’m very excited for this cosplay portrait series to be dropping on the BlessedShadows OnlyFans this week!
This fantasy photoshoot was so much fun, it’s exceptional fun to have a new chestplate in the studio for my more masculine cosplays.
So, what’s your favorite monster, and do you care to toss a coin to your Witcher?
Faux florals are so essential for a photography studio.
If your set or photoshoot feels a little plain or stale: add florals.
Florals add life to a shoot. Yes, even dead flowers add a special touch.
One of the best things about florals in the photography studio is that they give something for hands to do.
Tired of models not knowing what to do with their hands?
Given them a bouquet of flowers to hold. Let them run their hands through vines. Have them cup petals.
Head out to the thrift store or your local art supply store and grab some florals for your studio!
