Same Day, Same Client, Different Lighting.
Can you believe it? Yes, that’s how much of a huge factor lighting plays in your picture taking. I’m all for editing photos to make them more aesthetically appealing, but you can’t edit a photo that has bad lighting. It’s almost impossible.
When you put in the time to position your lighting, your clients, to brush the lashes, to fix the background, THAT’s how you get those trophy photos that will last you for years! (In fact, these pictures were taken 3 years ago and I can still use them due to the bomb picture quality. And they’re RAW).
Unfortunately, people are so quick to rush this process. Just do a set of lashes, take the money and call it a day. And yes, sometimes clients are in a rush. But most clients would LOVE to help you grow and have no problem being your model for a few extra minutes of picture taking. All you need to do is ask!
And even if you can’t find clients like that, get models! Go to a grocery store, walk down the street, ask your neighbor, or simply put it up on the gram. Everyone loves a free set of lashes! Once you create a bomb set that will result in soooo many pictures that you can use for your portfolio, just think about how many new clients you will get in return? Not to mention, your clients/models will be your walking advertisement, aka, free marketing!
Invest your time and effort in building a good portfolio. I kid you not, that’s how I became booked solid in 4 months! From 0 clients, to fully booked!
