One of my favorite parts of being a blogger/designer are the photo shoots.
When dreaming up posts, projects and new patterns I always start with a story. I'm one of those people who loves coming up with a character and the back story for that particular design/project. Then I go on the hunt to get a good photo shoot to depict that character and tell the story. This is not always easy. As many bloggers know it takes hard work, time and sometimes multiple photo shoots. Some go smoothly and others are filled with trials.
Shooting children is not an easy task either. So when I spotted my friend Alida (from the blog Alida Makes) new Ebook "Style that Kid! Children's Clothing Photos that Pop!" I thought aha! This is what I need! I'm always on the lookout for new tips, tricks and methods to improve my photo shoots and to take great pics of my kiddos in the lovelies I sew or knit up for them. I knew you all would love it too because I'm always hearing questions from you all about how to take better project photos etc.
With new seasons of Project Run & Play and Kids Clothes Week coming up and school getting back in session I know you are all getting ready to start sewing up a storm for those kiddos! Style that Kid is a great resource to help you improve, practice and add that special "wow factor" to your photographs! I really enjoyed it and learned some new things that I know I'll be using with my photo shoots from now on - for both the kids and for adult shoots too!
Here are some of the things that Style that Kid covers:
// contrast, dimension, texture
// lighting and location (shooting indoors and out)
// hair and styling
// props & accessories
& more!HERE on her website.
