As an over 50's Beauty Blogger, I take my responsibilities as an amateur photographer pretty seriously. I'm excited when my photos turn out exactly like I want them and even more excited when I get nice compliments.
I decided to take you behind the scenes of a typical photo shoot and show you my setup and also offer you some tips for indoor photography as well as lighting.

Prior to this, I was using my HD Canon Vixia HFR11 Camcorder to shoot my photos. It turned out to be an excellent option for high resolution photos for internet use until I could get my hands on a professional camera. But I don't recommend using a camcorder for continued use for still photos just because you have to keep switching the settings.

Come to mama! As a beauty blogger a girl couldn't ask for more so when my husband finally caved in and said we're getting you that new camera you've been wanting for Xmas... I was like a kid in a candy store. We waited until after Christmas to buy it because the camera went down over $100. It cost $799 before Xmas and it cost $619 + tax after Xmas. I'm so happy and I can't wait to use it and kiss my 7.2mp Canon Cybershot good buy!

I thought I would post an official image of my photo studio where I photograph products. The official name for it is called "My Studio" and it cost $139 + tax/shipping. Click the name/link and it'll take you to the website. This thing is huge! It's made of fiberglass and the dimensions are 20x20x12. Oh, there's one even larger if this isn't to your liking, just visit the website to see all the sizes.
I only photograph beauty products so I didn't invest in any additional lighting. Yes... there's also fluorescent lighting that you can buy to compliment your studio and also a reflector to bounce the light onto the product. I didn't invest in any of these lighting products because I like outdoor natural lighting from the sun. I feel it gives the images it's true colors.
