Last week, I posted about my desk set-up and wanted to follow it up with the setup I currently use to take my photos.
I’ve not always had a set up like this – in my old house, I would take photos on my living room floor. In this house, I flicker between using my white desk and my bedroom floor. But then I started using wallpaper samples to display products on. At first, I started using my floor but was getting fed up of having to arrange it and then tidy up every time I wanted to take photos, especially when I started using it on my Instagram account too.
I decided to dedicate my desk of draws in my room to bit of a photo station.
I have it laid out all the time now, with the props I use around it.
I keep various note pads, jewellery and things I can use as blog props to the left, and I keep my camera on the right alongside the things I need to review and any information that gets sent with PR samples to help the write up.
I also have my box light which I keep set up almost all the time, though I sometimes move it to the corner as it does do my head in! I love the box light, though, because it means I’m not restricted to taking photos at a certain time only.
This whole setup just makes it to much easier to take photos and cuts out almost all the time it takes to prepare for a shoot. It’s definitely part of my work smarter not harder philosophy!
I guess this is one of the perks of being single, I have my own room and I can use the space as I wish!
Do you have a blogging space like this? How do you take your photos?
