It’s no secret that I have a lot of clients with their own blogs or YouTube channels, and in most cases it’s the first time they’ve worked with a professional photographer. It can a little daunting to have a stranger pointing a DSLR at you when you’re used to your mum or significant other taking your photos. What are you supposed to wear? How do you pose? I appreciate that it might be overwhelming, so I thought I’d write this post or anyone who’s thinking of investing in a photoshoot soon… and no, it doesn’t have to be with me! (But, you know, I’m pretty good. Just saying.)
For as long as I’ve been creating content, I’ve always had one particular struggle, and I’m curious to see if this affects anyone else.The problem is that I’m a massive perfectionist. I have an obsessive need to make everything I produce a certain standard, and usually end up feeling drained and exhausted as a result. This can make producing regular content very difficult as tasks take much longer than they probably should.
It's a well known fact that if you were to look inside my brain, you would be lost in illegible black scribbles. You know, the ones you write down at one in the morning when you have quite possibly the best idea you've ever had in your life - then look at it the next day and decide that it's terrible and that you're terrible and a terrible artist and you should have just got a "proper job".
