Final images from this week’s shoot
Yesterday I did a shoot for the Colorista campaign, and this was the final result. I wanted to highlight the hair colour with a neutral background so I used a minimalistic area to shoot. When dyeing my hair I noticed the end result didn’t look anything that resembled the box, but never less it was a memorable experience. It was my first time ever bleaching and dyeing my hair by myself so I was super worried I would mess up and create a line on my hair where the colour started and where my natural hair ended. So I was pleased with the ombre effect, and even more so with the colour because I previously had ash blonde highlights and I felt that didn’t suit my look. However with more of a red tone to this hair dye I found it to work with my complexion.
Flat Lays & Violet Shades
Since the last time I’ve posted on here I’ve been studying for my Managerial Economics Midterm. Due to that I stayed at home 99% of the time.
However, I still managed to do a mini shoot this week for a product.
Being a influencer I was humbly asked if I would like to partake in an influencer campaign.
I was extremely shocked because my following is so small, but none the less I was flattered.
I chose to dye my hair purple because I wanted to create more of an edgy vibe to my look. Also, because I had some purple flowers at home at the time so it seemed synonymous to do so.
In true blogger fashion I used a white table to use as a blank canvas then proceeded to place the main product I wanted to feature in the middle, and then add additional items around the main focus of the photo to create my flatlay.
Usually flat lays are very neat and geometrical in a way, but I personally prefer to have what I call ‘a beautiful disaster’.
Editing wise I kept the photo very minimalistic with some colour sprinkled around the photo. I wanted to create more of a clean shot since it was to feature a product, but at the same time keep the composition and level of saturation cohesive with my style. Also since my table wasn’t that big I had to photoshop and extend the table in some areas.
Can you guess which photo I extended the table? (let me know in the comments below)
In this series I only liked two iPhone shots and two DSLR shots.
The final photo chosen for the campaign is featured here on my Instagram @charmynchan
Last Saturday on the 28th of January, I did a shoot with Jennifer Hallett the owner of Jayla Loves. The shoot was done in Yaletown where Jennifer lives, since it would be a convenient location to change outfits and it also fit in with my schedule since I had a dine out lunch event later that day. Again, Jayla’s Instagram feed is on a more monochromatic scale. However, Jayla said she would only desaturate the photos on her Instagram, but keep the photos the same on her blog. The product Jayla was featuring was Sketchers for their shoes, hence me capturing a photo of her shoes. Also Jayla was not very picky with what kind of location we shot at, so we used the opening of Earls to do our shoot at since we both agreed the brick wall would add colour to the photo.
