TAKING PHOTOS ON YOUR MOBILE HINTS
TAKING PHOTOS IN NATURAL SUN LIGHT
Make sure direct sunlight is behind you
Invest in a ring light or mobile ring light
This will add light around the hairstyle and can work well for darker hair types *See Extra Tips
Capture your beautiful colour work!
Invest in a SOCIAL WALL - A background poster or pull up banner
Use a RING LIGHT to take the best shot
* Clean background (see BACKGROUND below)
* Clean cape - No bleach or colour stains
* Clear away competitor branded products in the background
* 100% focus on the HAIR
MOBILE CAMERA FLASH
Sometimes using the flash may over expose the photo
Test with a few photos to see which works best on your phone
Create balance with a simple clean background
A plain black or white background works best.
If you don’t have a plain background, try finding a space where
the background is subtle and the main focus will be the hair
Photographing Dark Hair - try shooting in HDR mode (high dynamic range)
This will capture more detail and depth on darker hair types
HDR may not be necessary for highlighted blonde hair types
Try NOT to ZOOM IN too far - You’ll end up with a pixelated result
Move your subject closer to the camera
Single images can do better on social media than mirrored images.
Take as many photos as possible (20 - 30), you may only get 1 or 2 GREAT ones you like
Be sure to take close ups and distance images
Happy snapping and practice at home LOTS!
