Your lash pictures, beautifully done and photographed will create confidence in your prospective clients looking at your social media and will help you create more professional-looking advertisements and posts.
Portfolio sets can also be entered into online competitions. Sometimes you can get caught in a rut, lashing day in and out. But preparing a lash design and photography backdrop may put some creative fun back into your artistry and energize you!
Things you can do to take great portfolio shots are designing your models lashes beforehand, implementing face studies and choosing the best mapping to make her eyes really stand out.
Creating a backdrop with lighting in a salon or a small corner in your home studio is fun and easy. Research lighting drop by a local photography store and ask for tips, use your ring light and jump online for inspiration with posing and hair/makeup.
Make sure your camera is set to high definition and snap away. Most importantly take a day off to do your models lashes and shoot without being rushed. Take photographs of the whole process for your social media and get lost in the artistry and creativity!
