Happppppy Friday and almost-3-day-weekend for those of us in the U.S.! This Friday Fiver with Alida Makes will get you off to a great start.
This is the perfect time of year to brush up on your photography and photo styling! All that time you spend sewing for your kids or yourself – and then you go to photograph it and you think…. why doesn’t this look as great in photos as it does to me in real life? Why doesn’t it POP? Well, Style That Kid helps you examine what you’re doing now and how you can make a few simple adjustments to make your hard work shine as brightly as it could. What I love most about the book is that it’s simple – it’s not an exotic location, an expensive camera or a styling team that will improve your photos, it’s useful questions for you to consider as you set up your shots.
The best way to illustrate how helpful the book is is to show you some fantastic before/after examples. While Alida does happen to be the authority on accessories, there is so much MORE to this book than choosing accessories. Look to this example of shots before and after reading the book by Sewing Mama RaeAnna! Simple and gorgeous. Nobody’s knee-deep in swamp water pretending to be happy here. This is about being comfortable and just a tiny bit of planning ahead.
In this example from Andrea’s Notebook, a few simple changes made a world of difference. No complicated posing. No artificial lighting or special equipment. Just thoughtful consideration of the points in the book.
And in a third before/after, Alida shows how her own photography evolved over time to help create Style That Kid! As you read the book it’s filled with great examples like this one.
So, I recommended it on our blog already, but ESPECIALLY at the Friday Fiver price, I say GRAB IT UP. Code “FIVER” will adjust the price from $10 to $5 in your cart. You’ll find the post with all of the information about the book here, and the shop here to grab your copy!
As usual, this Friday Fiver is valid for 24 hours only beginning at 6 am Eastern on Friday, August 29 and ending at 6 am Eastern on Saturday, August 30th.
