Three Things You need to Know
The workshop was jam packed with information, but I asked Melissa what are the three main takeaways and I summarized them in this blog post.
She said to remember:
- Lighting: Natural light is always best
- Perspective: Don't be afraid to move
- Context: Tell a story through your photographs

Photo Styling Tools
Contact Paper - Melissa showed us a cool hack. If you wrap your foam board in contact paper, you can make it look like a marble countertop.
The Styling Mat - We got a sneak peek at a brand new tool called the Styling Mat. It was designed by a photographer/florist. It's foldable and washable. Once it launches, you can order it here.
Plus, basically anything you have lying around the house. Pull out that old china, dust off those old books, polish up your silverware...all of it adds unique context and interest to your photography.
Photo Editing Apps
PicTapGo - This is the one that Melissa said was her favorite. It's $2.99 and only available for the iPhone.
A Color Story - A color story is very similar to the one mentioned above and available for both the iPhone and Android.
VSCO - Is another popular photo editing app and it's been around for a long time.
We want to see your lovely pictures!
