Lifestyle | How To Create a Background for Videos

I created this fun background to give my videos a little more flare from time to time and it was very easy and simple to do. Working with contact paper is no easy feat, I ended up with several bubbles which I tried to cover with the flowery peel off stickers. Be sure and watch the video below to see the tutorial.

2016 Birthday Haul
I wanted to share all the wonderful items that my husband bought for my birthday. This is a special birthday because it actually falls on the day that I have chemotherapy for ovarian cancer.  I made a video located at the bottom of this post showing all the items in real time.

Lifestyle ~ Tips for Behind the Scenes Beauty Blogger Photography ~ #CarefreeChallenge

 Behind the Scenes Beauty Blogger Photography
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.

Photography ~ Indoor Photography and Video Lighting for Small Spaces

Canon EOS Rebel T3i

This is my first professional camera that I've had for a few years now, it was a gift from my husband. Now I shoot all the photos for my Blogs using my Canon EOS Rebel T3i.  I have to admit that i've become pretty good thanks to numerous online forums and photography Blogs.

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.

Photography ~ My New Canon Rebel EOS T3i

Canon Rebel EOS T3iCome 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!

Photography ~ "My Studio" Tabletop Photo Studio

"My Studio" Tabletop Photo StudioI 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.
