  • Because I don't conveniently have a boyfriend

  • who also likes photography who will follow me around all day

  • and take photos of me.

  • So, this is my life.

  • So, today I am going on little Instagram photoshoot,

  • you know, as one does.

  • A casual, non-narcissistic daytime activity.

  • I am by no means a professional model or Instagram human.

  • Which is already apparent based on my face,

  • but there's a whole like hierarch to Instagram that I have yet to attain.

  • But I'm trying my best to get better at it so I thought

  • I would take you guys along on that journey with me today!

  • Basically

  • *SIREN*

  • Basically the neighborhood that I live in is not that nice,

  • case in point.

  • So today we're gonna be driving about half an hour out to the Fairfax / Miracle Mile part of L.A.

  • That area has a really nice vibe that I think will be

  • less ugly than Westwood.

  • But for maximum efficiency so I can get like a couple different Instagram photos out of the $4 gallon of gas

  • that I'm gonna be using today, I thought I would pack a couple other outfits.

  • So basically my goal here is to pack as many different things that look like different outfits,

  • but aren't really different outfits,

  • so I don't have to like get completely naked in my car in public to change,

  • you know, so I'm thinking first

  • I'm gonna shoot like just with this dress and then I could change it up

  • with an oversized jacket and I was thinking these shoes with it, get some texture going.

  • I don't know if you guys remember these things

  • from like a couple years ago when they were really trendy,

  • they are these little like scarf neck ties this could look a cute with it.

  • I could do like a little portrait style thing. Give them a little shoulder.

  • Um, I don't know so I guess I'm gonna pack this too.

  • Can I figure out if I can layer this dress over this dress and then it won't look like super lumpy.

  • Okay. Well, I kind of look like a child.

  • Marla Catherine is quaking.

  • I was also thinking of packing this ensemble,

  • but I feel like I would have to get completely naked to change into it.

  • So it might be an outfit for another day.

  • You know, I'm gonna pack it just in case.

  • Will I get arrested for public nudity today?

  • Let's find out. So here is everything I'm bringing.

  • I have a bag full of clothing and accessories,

  • I have this picnic bitch basket, which I might use as a prop,

  • but in the meantime I stuck in some accessories

  • I have this, if I could, I have this bendy tripod looking thing.

  • And then of course, I have the love of my life.

  • Which is this fancy and honestly obscenely expensive camera that I got recently.

  • For the longest time I've been shooting all of my videos on my vlog camera,

  • which is what I'm using the film this one right now.

  • But recently I thought it was time for an upgrade, got this big boy.

  • So that's what we're gonna be shooting most of our photos on today and then a couple bonus things,

  • I also have a water bottle so I don't die in like the ninety degree heat

  • and then a brow gel because my brows are fake AF

  • and they melt off pretty fast in the heat when I get sweaty so they may need a little reapplication.

  • My question for you is have you heard the Walmart yodeling kids new music.

  • Okay, we're not at Fairfax yet,

  • but I just passed by the most beautiful fucking building I've ever seen and I'm in Beverly Hills right now,

  • so I just literally pulled over into this parking spot and I'm park very illegally,

  • I'm gonna jump out real fast fingers crossed

  • I won't get a parking ticket and I'm gonna try to get a couple shots in front of this building because this is

  • gorgeous.

  • What I didn't realize that there's someone sitting in their car

  • literally right behind me so they watched me do that entire thing.

  • I'm gonna slowly drive away now so that I don't have to make eye contact with them.

  • So right now I feel like I'm in a quiet enough block

  • to actually walk you guys through my process of how I shoot.

  • Because I don't want to carry around a big tripod and draw attention to myself

  • and because L.A. is incredibly anal about where you can shoot and shooting permits

  • I've gotten kicked out of places for having a tripod before,

  • so I just try to make do by balancing my camera on random objects,

  • whether that's my purse I have this little tiny bendy tripod that I can put like on the roof of my car,

  • I can balance the camera in my trunk and stuff like that.

  • My strategy for shooting my own photos is actually to not use the self-timer function on my camera

  • and to instead just click record and take a video because it's basically taking a continuous stream of photos

  • So if I only hit the actual pose I've wanted for like 0.1 seconds, It has it captured.

  • I also find that it's just more efficient because I can smash through poses really fast

  • without having to wait for the self timer to

  • actually go off every time on my camera,

  • and one of my favorite ways to pose especially because I'm like

  • an awkward being at posing is to sit on steps.

  • I feel like it takes the pressure off of having this like uncomfortable like

  • ''Hey, I'm standing here!'' type of pose.

  • I also feel like sitting down gives you more options in terms of filling the frame in terms of composition,

  • because you know, you can move your legs to one side. You can do a little of this action.

  • Right now it is broad daylight. It's around 4 p.m. and the sun is beating down,

  • I'm getting a little bit sweaty, and I don't know if you guys can tell,

  • but I found a spot in the shade,

  • there are a bunch of trees lining the street.

  • So hopefully the lighting will be a little bit more diffused and it won't be so harsh on my skin.

  • So yeah, let's get shooting.

  • I'm gonna put my hair up this full variety and so it kind of looks like

  • I didn't shoot all my photos on the same day.

  • I look kind of bald though.

  • So for this setup I started out with taking a couple of close-up shots,

  • I tried to do a couple fun expressions, but honestly

  • I think my tongue isn't long enough to do the tongue sticking out pose,

  • or just like maybe something's wrong with my face.

  • I don't know. So my go-to expression is that weird Instagram smolder thing that everyone does.

  • Basically, I don't know if need an explanation of this,

  • but I just focus on relaxing my face and making sure the corners of my mouth are pointing up,

  • but I'm not tensing or pouting my mouth up too much.

  • I don't know, this is a weird shit to describe,

  • and then I tried to add some movement to the photos

  • by spinning around and playing with my pony tail and shit.

  • Okay, now I'm gonna try to position my camera so I can get a shot on these stairs,

  • hopefully as centered as possible.

  • I'm just zooming in a little bit on this baby.

  • Let's see how it turns out.

  • I'm also gonna record a little bit on my vlog camera,

  • because it looks like the framing for this is pretty nice and centered,

  • a little Wes Andersony.

  • Okay, well now my hair is a mess,

  • but I'm gonna try to fix that and then to round out this shoot,

  • I would try to shoot my final outfit with a gingham skirt.

  • After I changed it into my final outfit and managed

  • miraculously to not flash anyone on the street.

  • I realized like an idiot,

  • I forgot to bring a strapless bra for this top,

  • so I ended up putting my hair in two braids and trying my best to position them,

  • so they hid the straps.

  • For all the photos in this video so far including these ones

  • I've been keeping my lens angle pretty wide.

  • I feel like it's hard to explain but I like that the wide angle gives a more dynamic,

  • kind of fashion editorial look as opposed to if I zoom in too much.

  • This is around 70 millimeters right now.

  • It makes my face look a little wider,

  • there's kind of less movement in the frame and less context of where we are,

  • and it gives a more generic headshot vibe in my opinion.

  • Obviously, this is all up to personal preference, but

  • wide-angle lenses are just what floats my boat.

  • Anyways, I really played around with the poses for this outfit.

  • I'm really really going for that frolicking picnic bitch look like:

  • ''Oh! I'm just casually squatting near these flowers

  • as one does on a fine summer day.''

  • Hey guys! So my camera ran out of battery the other day so I didn't get to finish shooting.

  • Also, somehow managed to literally throw my phone into a puddle in Beverly Hills. I lost it.

  • So I spent the rest of yesterday like frantically trying to find it again.

  • So I thought I would show you guys today how I kind of take photos on a more

  • casual basis when I'm not like out and location scouting.

  • Right now I was just running some errands in Santa Monica

  • I finally bought a hat that fit me and I was like, why don't I take some Instagram photos?

  • There are so many people walking by I feel so awkward.

  • I'm so excited because my head is too damn big to fit most hats.

  • So I was like: you know what, I'm wearing a cute outfit,

  • I have some time on my parking meter, might as well take a couple more photos.

  • For this outfit I was just looking for a plain brick wall to add a little bit of color New Yorky style,

  • I feel like I'm always looking for New York type backgrounds even though I'm in fucking L.A.

  • So right now I'm just on this like random street in Santa Monica near the Plomin(?).

  • Ah, there's a parking garage, cute!

  • Then here I am against this random wall, but I thought it would be a good option,

  • because there's this nice little ledge over here,

  • so I can rest my handy-dandy purse / tripod situation.

  • So I'm just gonna take a couple photos and we'll see how they turn out.

  • I went into this one pretty much knowing which composition I wanted,

  • so it was really all about just getting the right pose.

  • The best angles are obviously different for each person and outfit,

  • and especially for someone who like me is not a model,

  • it's really just about giving yourself as many options as possible.

  • One thing that I've learned through this whole process

  • is that even what seems like a small head tilt or change in hand position

  • can honestly make a huge difference in a photo or maybe I'm just obscenely picky.

  • Either way I like to run through small variations on each pose,

  • whether that's like tilting my head, moving my hips a little bit,

  • smiling, moving my eyes. I don't know, I just want options.

  • And here is how everything turned out.

  • I think they have a much more like

  • stereotypical Instagram / tumblr feel than the rest of my photos in this video.

  • 12 year old tumblr-obsessed me would probably

  • reblog the shit out of that,

  • but honestly quite happy with how they turned out.

  • Okay, and I guess that is all I have for you guys. Thank you so much for watching this video,

  • I know it's kind of weirdly split between two days and perhaps all over the place.

  • However long I do this vlogging thing,

  • I still get like so flustered when other people are around which is why I'm a little bit weird.

  • So, thank you so much for watching,

  • let me know if you guys want me to do another video on how I edit my Instagram photos.

  • That's like a whole another project, but as always, thank you so much for watching,

  • and also hello to all the new people on my channel.

  • I feel like there's literally been like a hundred thousand people who joined in the last month, which is crazy.

  • So thank you so much and I'll see you guys next week. Bye.

  • Yes, I look like such an Instagram model.
