Here is a little peek behind the scenes of Lana Red! I have only been blogging for almost 4 months, but it already feels like a big part of my life and I love it! And I thought it was time to share a little bit of how my bloglife looks like in real life. I know how pretty things can look like in pictures, and I just wanted to show you the realistic( but also a lot of fun!) side of having this blog.
As you can see in the image above, I can be a bit messy :) Hair or other close-up shots only really need a good background and some nice lighting. You can see me here sitting in my ‘dressing room’ in front of my closet. I hang different kind of shawls and scarfs over the closet as a background. This way the photos will have a different feel in each post and I don’t have to paint my entire wall!
And the lighting in this room is perfect at the end of the afternoon!
After finishing the tutorials and results photos, I take them into photoshop and make them a little bit prettier:) I usuly make them a bit lighter and alter the contrast. And if I’m in a really arty mood I try some photoshop actions, to create a special vibe.
I started this blog to give myself another reason to keep making crafty things and sharing my tutorials as a thank you to all of the people that had inspired me with there tutorials. But it has become so much more to me than that, and it’s a big part of my life right now. You can see me in the image above working on my blog while I’m in the train. My parents and sisters live 2 hours away by train from me, and that train ride is always perfect for me to do some photo editing.
I am very happy with how things are going so far, and I love to read all the lovely comments that people write on my blog. Thank you all so much for your support!
