Hairline Painting πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨ take quick wispy stokes and apply the lightener thick! #hairpainting

If I posted this as an "after" photo πŸ“Έ...what would you do?
Would you hit the like button, just keep scrolling, make a nasty comment about how awful it looks, or maybe even tag a friend so you can make sure they see πŸ‘€ it? Well if you scroll long enough you'll find that this was my first after pic I ever posted to IG....
At the time I was super proud of it and excited to share it. However I didn't know much about IG. I didn't know that a caption πŸ’­ is worth a thousand words sometimes. I didn't know how distracting the background could be. I didn't realize how important lighting πŸ’‘could be.
Since then which was just 3 short years ago I have worked nonstop to improve not only my work but also my pics and overall content and I will continue to work on it because if your ever πŸ’― percent satisfied then it means there is no room for growth.
I often get asked about what I use to take my pics so here's some advice....
1️⃣ I use my iPhone πŸ“±7 plus for all my pics πŸ“Έ
2️⃣ Try to use a clean background (no one wants to see all the junk at your station)
3️⃣ Lighting is crucial! Natural indirect lighting is ideal. If not a light ring will help
4️⃣ I never use flash
5️⃣ Stand your client up. Pics from the chair do not show the hair nearly as well
6️⃣ Before and afters need to be significant (long to short, dark to light, etc)
7️⃣ I never use borders or mirror images. Single clean pics are my preference although I will change it up a bit occasionally.
8️⃣ take lots and I mean lots of pics with several different poses or positions until you find the right angle. Sometimes this takes me over 100 different shots.
Don't be selfish with information but also don't feel entitled to it.
Always compliment someone before demanding information.
Make sure if your using a watermark that it's not intrusive. Anything that takes away from the hair is a distraction.
Not every picture is post worthy and that's ok πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ. Only put out the type of work you want to get back. Although the swipe option is fun I find myself only looking at the first pic. Lastly don't forget to use #'s if your looking to target a certain clientele or audience. ❀️❀️❀️
