Top 10 Behind the Scenes Silhouette Secrets

December 29, 2016

 

As we continue Top 10 week here on Silhouette School, I thought you might enjoy a few secrets from behind the scenes.  Let's be honest there's a whole lot that you, the readers, don't see.


You see the best photos that have been edited, cropped and re-touched. You see the Silhouette tutorial with perfect cut settings - not the 14 cuts it took me to find those perfect cut settings. You see my office looking neat, styled and orderly - not the hurricane that just went through my craft room as I worked through crafting, photographing and then editing three projects at the same time for the blog.

And since I know there's a lot of curiosity about what it takes to run a blog (with your husband) - especially one that's a full time gig for both of us - I figured I'd give you a little insight.  

1. I use my iPhone 6+ to take blog photos and my iPad for Facebook Live

A lot of people ask me what camera I use to take photos for the blog and the answer is 99% of the time I use my iphone.  With good lighting, nice composure, a little staging and some minor editing (I use the free Camera+ app along with PicMonkey) you can take great photos with your iPhone. I do have a DSLR (Nikon D3000), but I rarely break it out.

For my Facebook Live videos I use my iPad with the forward facing camera...propped up with a very professional stand. (Don't judge.) I have a much easier time talking to myself on the screen (and knowing if someone is sneaking up behind me) than staring at the little camera on the backside of the iPad. So sorry about your luck with the mirrored image on Facebook Live...but the forward facing camera is key for me.
