Sharing a tip on creating some interesting looks with lighting. I bring fairy lights along with me to shoots. This is an inexpensive way to add a little extra to your images (as shown in my video below). Recently, I've been incorporating colored LED lights into my shots with gels and really digging the effects. When I did my shoot with Meka La Creme, I used both red and pink lights. You can find lights like this at Target or Big Lots (or wait till Christmas stuff goes on sale and hit up the lights section of stores!).
This is a styling tips video that I posted a last year, but I wanted to share it again, as many of the ribbons used in it I found in stores this time of year. Holiday ribbons are perfect for creative little upgrades to your fashion and beauty photography. After Christmas, hit up the clearance aisles at the craft stores to find some amazing discounted pretties!
Also, reuse ribbons and bows that come on any gifts you receive (or ask your friends and family if you can have theirs before they throw them away). It's an excellent way to upcycle and upgrade your images.
