Starting Painting My Studio This Week & Planning My Portfolio :)

My husband is painting out my studio this week, it will all be completely white, to make the natural light I have, reflected and keep the studio as bright and fresh, as is possible.

I’m going to order my studio lights, backdrop stand and drops this week too. I’m so excited!!!  I can’t wait to start practising in my studio, ready for when I do a model call, for shots to build up my Website portfolio. I have my plan in place, to gain some great portfolio shots.

Have lots of ideas for posing people, some great ideas for props – many of which my husband is making me, so they will be unique.  And I will be so happy to share them with other photographers too. Continue reading “Starting Painting My Studio This Week & Planning My Portfolio :)”

This week, I am going to learn Photoshop :)

So far, my editing has been solely with Lightroom. I am still learning all the many ways to edit in Lightroom, but now want to expand to Photoshop editing.

I have no idea how you create layers, and all the vast ways of editing in Photoshop, and I intend watching many YouTube video tutorials.
