At Home Photo Studio

Holy cow, that POPSUGAR Must Have Box unboxing video received 900+ views in 24 hours.  You guys must really like subscription boxes (and videos), so I think I’ll try to make time to open my Ipsy Glam Bag in front of you next.  Thanks for the support!

Remember I mentioned I would try to show you more outfits?  My struggle was my backyard was a little too English Country (not complaining as that is my intended goal) however since I can no longer just pose in front of some gorgeous old architecture in the South of France, I figured turning that old storage/tool shed into a little studio with a seamless would be a good option.

This was my best shot with the Sony NEX-5R which has a flip screen and automatic focus – making it easier for these outfit shots so I can make sure I’m in frame and not overly worry if I’m in focus – it tracks me.

Sweater: Banana Republic / Scarf: Subtle Luxury / Denim: Paige Denim (similar) / Flats: Similar, (another option) / Bracelet: J.Crew

I’m still desperately working on the lighting, and I think I’ve figured it out.

Here’s what the set up looks like:

Oh oh, wait for it!

Yep that’s my beach cruiser that’s been neglected all summer and probably has a flat.  That’s our blow up mattress, BBQ supplies and behind the seamless (in Fashion Gray) are all my blankets, props, entertaining flatware, dishes, diaries, holiday decor, ummmmm.

So the goal is to start clearing most of it out.  When my girlfriend Maayan and I caught up on the phone she said, “You know what Oprah says, if it’s in storage, you don’t need it.”  So minus the tools, I think she’s just about right – almost (the entertaining stuff tho, gotta make space for that somewhere).

I might save that goal for 2015 – when I have to put the Christmas stuff away I’ll purge a bit.

Here’s hoping I get a chance to strike a pose to share more outfits. xx
