A Typical Shoot Day
Creator Insights with Keiko Lynn
Hi, I'm Keiko!
I've been a fulltime blogger for 12 years.
I'll share my experiences in this series.
Let's take a look behind the scenes of a shoot day.
I kick things off with a moodboard. It's a good start to get a feeling for:
color & tones
hair & makeup
I keep a Google Map of pinned locations with descriptions. Whenever I find a place with potential I just add it.
Today we use a studio setup for a retro-themed shoot.
3. Preparing the Set
On shoot days I try to get as many different shots as possible:
Different outputs (blog, social media)
Behind the scenes
4. Doing the Hair
If possible I use wigs. It's easier and faster.
5. Applying Makeup
6. Setting up the Camera
On a tripod
Using the Smartphone as remote for self-portraits
The selftimer gives time to hide the phone
Self-Portraits are a lot of trial and error but I find it comfortable that nobody is watching.
I hope you enjoyed these insights.
