sure the colors worn fit your themes

23
00:01:08,020 –> 00:01:10,210
colors and vibe also I’ve been shopping

24
00:01:10,210 –> 00:01:12,069
for a lot of athleisure recently so if

25
00:01:12,069 –> 00:01:13,119

27
00:01:15,009 –> 00:01:16,240
the comments

[Music]

29
00:01:21,920 –> 00:01:24,869
my go-to apps for pose inspiration is

30
00:01:24,869 –> 00:01:27,149
Instagram and Pinterest here a couple of

31
00:01:27,149 –> 00:01:29,159
my favorite yoga accounts also when

32
00:01:29,159 –> 00:01:31,020
looking at one yoga account make sure to

33
00:01:31,020 –> 00:01:32,520
check the related accounts so you can

34
00:01:32,520 –> 00:01:34,439
discover more similar instagramers where

35
00:01:34,439 –> 00:01:36,689
you will find more poses and when I find

36
00:01:36,689 –> 00:01:38,700
a photo I like I just save it to my yoga

37
00:01:38,700 –> 00:01:40,439
poses folder and then when I’m taking

38
00:01:40,439 –> 00:01:42,119
photos I just looked through this folder

39
00:01:42,119 –> 00:01:43,679
to see what I should do here’s some

40
00:01:43,679 –> 00:01:45,329
great dance Instagram accounts that have

41
00:01:45,329 –> 00:01:47,490
a lot of poses and remember don’t forget

42
00:01:47,490 –> 00:01:50,630
to check the related accounts

43
00:01:52,590 –> 00:02:00,230
[Music]

44
00:02:03,530 –> 00:02:06,150
as for Pinterest make sure you type in

45
00:02:06,150 –> 00:02:09,119
cool yoga poses or cool dance poses

46
00:02:09,119 –> 00:02:10,740
because if you just type in yoga poses

47
00:02:10,740 –> 00:02:12,570
more tutorials tend to show up rather

48
00:02:12,570 –> 00:02:14,940
than actual poses for pictures so what I

49
00:02:14,940 –> 00:02:16,800
do is I find one pose I like and then

50
00:02:16,800 –> 00:02:18,900
scroll down and usually I discover more

51
00:02:18,900 –> 00:02:20,790
photos that are similar to it and I just

52
00:02:20,790 –> 00:02:22,560
go through and save all my favourites in

53
00:02:22,560 –> 00:02:29,220
a folder I use the Nikon d50 500 to take

54
00:02:29,220 –> 00:02:30,870
my photos and I switch off between the

55
00:02:30,870 –> 00:02:32,670
35 millimeter lens which I use for

56
00:02:32,670 –> 00:02:34,740
close-up shots in the 18 to 55

57
00:02:34,740 –> 00:02:36,209
millimeter lens which is the one I

58
00:02:36,209 –> 00:02:38,250
usually use now you don’t need some

59
00:02:38,250 –> 00:02:40,200
expensive camera to produce great photos

60
00:02:40,200 –> 00:02:42,180
I actually use my phone to take some my

61
00:02:42,180 –> 00:02:44,220
Instagram photos as well also if you

62
00:02:44,220 –> 00:02:45,360
don’t have someone to help you take

63
00:02:45,360 –> 00:02:47,520
photos I recommend buying a clicker this

64
00:02:47,520 –> 00:02:48,989
one is for my camera and I believe they

65
00:02:48,989 –> 00:02:50,880
have some for phones as well but just a

66
00:02:50,880 –> 00:02:53,040
reminder the iPhone does have a timer on

67
00:02:53,040 –> 00:02:54,510
the camera so a clicker isn’t that

68
00:02:54,510 –> 00:02:55,320
necessary

69
00:02:55,320 –> 00:02:57,330
this Gorillapod is so flexible and

70
00:02:57,330 –> 00:02:58,980
compact so you can bring it wherever you

71
00:02:58,980 –> 00:03:00,930
go it will really come in handy if you

72
00:03:00,930 –> 00:03:02,190
don’t have someone helping you snap a

73
00:03:02,190 –> 00:03:06,930
few pics on this particular day I went

74
00:03:06,930 –> 00:03:08,880
to the Los Angeles Art District to take

75
00:03:08,880 –> 00:03:11,340
photos so we’re just walking around

76
00:03:11,340 –> 00:03:14,040
scouting for a location you kind of just

77
00:03:14,040 –> 00:03:15,390
get this intuitive feeling you’re like

78
00:03:15,390 –> 00:03:17,400
oh that will work for my theme and that

79
00:03:17,400 –> 00:03:19,110
just really takes time the more photos

80
00:03:19,110 –> 00:03:20,970
you take the more of a feel you’ll get

81
00:03:20,970 –> 00:03:22,769
if you’re just starting out know that

82
00:03:22,769 –> 00:03:24,299
you can never go wrong with a white

83
00:03:24,299 –> 00:03:25,400
background

84
00:03:25,400 –> 00:03:29,810
I left my house to discover cool

85
00:03:29,810 –> 00:03:31,519
locations and if you don’t live near any

86
00:03:31,519 –> 00:03:33,200
places with cool backgrounds or don’t

87
00:03:33,200 –> 00:03:35,060
have transportation even just a white

88
00:03:35,060 –> 00:03:36,709
wall would create a really pretty feed

89
00:03:36,709 –> 00:03:38,510
you just need to be more open-minded

90
00:03:38,510 –> 00:03:40,519
develop an eye for what would look good

91
00:03:40,519 –> 00:03:42,470
and make use of your surroundings just

92
00:03:42,470 –> 00:03:44,720
an example when I was younger I always

93
00:03:44,720 –> 00:03:46,280
took photos around my house and there

94
00:03:46,280 –> 00:03:47,959
weren’t that many great spots but I had

95
00:03:47,959 –> 00:03:49,579
my younger sister snapped this photo of

96
00:03:49,579 –> 00:03:51,560
me leaping in the sky and I just cropped

97
00:03:51,560 –> 00:03:53,090
off the ground so it only shows the blue

98
00:03:53,090 –> 00:03:55,040
sky and there’s a great photo to add to

99
00:03:55,040 –> 00:03:57,230
your feed just be creative and get some

100
00:03:57,230 –> 00:04:00,700
photography inspiration online

101
00:04:00,710 –> 00:04:07,100
[Music]

102
00:04:07,100 –> 00:04:09,330
clean backgrounds are always a great

103
00:04:09,330 –> 00:04:10,800
idea because it allows there to be a

104
00:04:10,800 –> 00:04:12,690
greater focus on the actual person

105
00:04:12,690 –> 00:04:14,610
notice that in this photo I kind of

106
00:04:14,610 –> 00:04:16,170
blend in with the background whereas in

107
00:04:16,170 –> 00:04:18,540
this other photo I stand out you want to

108
00:04:18,540 –> 00:04:22,310
strive to make the person stand out more

109
00:04:24,140 –> 00:04:26,640
when taking the photo the angling and

110
00:04:26,640 –> 00:04:28,320
posing really varies there are three

111
00:04:28,320 –> 00:04:30,630
basic angles I recommend triangle angle

112
00:04:30,630 –> 00:04:33,570
from above below and leveled other than

113
00:04:33,570 –> 00:04:35,310
that I think the more photos you look at

114
00:04:35,310 –> 00:04:36,990
and take the better you become at just

115
00:04:36,990 –> 00:04:38,310
knowing what looks best with that

116
00:04:38,310 –> 00:04:40,410
setting so my advice would be to just go

117
00:04:40,410 –> 00:04:40,950
for it

118
00:04:40,950 –> 00:04:43,200
don’t expect perfection remember that it

119
00:04:43,200 –> 00:04:44,880
is always a work in progress in a

120
00:04:44,880 –> 00:04:46,680
process of trial and error and the more

121
00:04:46,680 –> 00:04:49,510
you practice the better you get

122
00:04:49,510 –> 00:05:03,629
[Music]

123
00:05:03,629 –> 00:05:05,739
recently I’ve actually started creating

124
00:05:05,739 –> 00:05:07,479
a theme to feed on my Instagram and I’ve

125
00:05:07,479 –> 00:05:09,909
received so many comments asking how I

126
00:05:09,909 –> 00:05:11,919
edit my Instagram photos so in this

127
00:05:11,919 –> 00:05:14,199
video I’m gonna share with you all the

128
00:05:14,199 –> 00:05:16,629
editing secrets first off I’m going to

129
00:05:16,629 –> 00:05:20,019
go into is aviary so going to open up

130
00:05:20,019 –> 00:05:21,399
the photo that I want do as I go into

131
00:05:21,399 –> 00:05:23,679
the adjust settings and I play with the

132
00:05:23,679 –> 00:05:25,779
exposure so I usually bring it up like a

133
00:05:25,779 –> 00:05:28,599
lot not too much to where it looks faded

134
00:05:28,599 –> 00:05:31,269
but just enough then I go into

135
00:05:31,269 –> 00:05:33,789
saturation and I bring it down a lot not

136
00:05:33,789 –> 00:05:35,349
to where the saturation drowns out my

137
00:05:35,349 –> 00:05:38,229
skin but just enough to where you still

138
00:05:38,229 –> 00:05:40,329
see skin color but it’s still lowering

139
00:05:40,329 –> 00:05:42,489
the saturation of the background then I

140
00:05:42,489 –> 00:05:44,139
go over to highlights and I usually

141
00:05:44,139 –> 00:05:46,779
bring that down just a little bit it

142
00:05:46,779 –> 00:05:48,579
really always depends on the photo but I

143
00:05:48,579 –> 00:05:50,739
still do this routine every time then I

144
00:05:50,739 –> 00:05:52,119
bring down the shadows to add more

145
00:05:52,119 –> 00:05:56,199
emphasis on the dark colors once that’s

146
00:05:56,199 –> 00:05:58,659
all applied sometimes I go back a little

147
00:05:58,659 –> 00:06:01,089
bit just to see that’s good then I press

148
00:06:01,089 –> 00:06:05,860
apply and save next we go into face tune

149
00:06:05,860 –> 00:06:08,619
now face tune I believe is like 99 cents

150
00:06:08,619 –> 00:06:09,999
in the App Store and you don’t want to

151
00:06:09,999 –> 00:06:11,889
buy that app you can actually just

152
00:06:11,889 –> 00:06:14,289
whiten it in aviary but I actually like

153
00:06:14,289 –> 00:06:16,479
the color of the whitening tool and face

154
00:06:16,479 –> 00:06:18,819
to better so I’m just going to open the

155
00:06:18,819 –> 00:06:21,219
photo that I just edited the other great

156
00:06:21,219 –> 00:06:23,050
thing about face tunes whitening tool is

157
00:06:23,050 –> 00:06:25,239
that it has an eraser so you can erase

158
00:06:25,239 –> 00:06:27,429
if you kind of mess up so actually what

159
00:06:27,429 –> 00:06:28,700
I do I’m not even

160
00:06:28,700 –> 00:06:31,580
i whiten the entire thing even my body

161
00:06:31,580 –> 00:06:34,190
and then I go back in with the eraser

162
00:06:34,190 –> 00:06:37,610
and then just erase the whiteness on my

163
00:06:37,610 –> 00:06:38,180
body

164
00:06:38,180 –> 00:06:41,570
to bring back the original color there’s

165
00:06:41,570 –> 00:06:42,830
quite a difference

166
00:06:42,830 –> 00:06:45,650
perfect now I’m going to save that and

167
00:06:45,650 –> 00:06:49,010
then I move on and go to so I don’t

168
00:06:49,010 –> 00:06:51,080
always use this app but I use it when I

169
00:06:51,080 –> 00:06:53,030
need it and this photo definitely needs

170
00:06:53,030 –> 00:06:55,850
this tool it’s called Snapseed I’m gonna

171
00:06:55,850 –> 00:06:58,270
take this like to tool and I’m going to

172
00:06:58,270 –> 00:07:00,770
bring up the right brightness of the

173
00:07:00,770 –> 00:07:02,480
walls because the whitening tool just

174
00:07:02,480 –> 00:07:06,290
didn’t do it justice I do that to the

175
00:07:06,290 –> 00:07:12,110
other side really wipe the walls I’m

176
00:07:12,110 –> 00:07:15,390
actually going to do that to my body too

177
00:07:15,390 –> 00:07:16,980
this is a very unique tool that I

178
00:07:16,980 –> 00:07:20,430
haven’t seen other apps carry so thank

179
00:07:20,430 –> 00:07:24,810
you snap C save that and lastly I go

180
00:07:24,810 –> 00:07:27,240
into vsco cam and do the rest and take

181
00:07:27,240 –> 00:07:30,420
this image and basically the key to

182
00:07:30,420 –> 00:07:32,610
holding a themed feed is by using the

183
00:07:32,610 –> 00:07:34,650
same filter every time and doing the

184
00:07:34,650 –> 00:07:37,440
exact same like little changes that I

185
00:07:37,440 –> 00:07:38,940
did like bringing down the saturation

186
00:07:38,940 –> 00:07:40,800
bring down the highlights the shadows

187
00:07:40,800 –> 00:07:43,230
and that’s what really holds all the

188
00:07:43,230 –> 00:07:44,400
pictures to make it look very

189
00:07:44,400 –> 00:07:47,640
synchronized so the filter that I use I

190
00:07:47,640 –> 00:07:49,260
actually bought it in vsco cam is like

191
00:07:49,260 –> 00:07:52,590
99 cents and one which I actually really

192
00:07:52,590 –> 00:07:55,260
didn’t like this one there’s I also

193
00:07:55,260 –> 00:07:57,600
sometimes use s 2 so it’s between N 1

194
00:07:57,600 –> 00:08:01,050
and s 2 but I usually use n 1 and then I

195
00:08:01,050 –> 00:08:05,640
just adjusted to how much of the filter

196
00:08:05,640 –> 00:08:08,250
I wanted to but the reason I like N 1 is

197
00:08:08,250 –> 00:08:10,500
because it really whitens the photo even

198
00:08:10,500 –> 00:08:14,670
more so after I do that I save it find

199
00:08:14,670 –> 00:08:16,380
something that fits your personality and

200
00:08:16,380 –> 00:08:17,730
you feel that portray to you the best

201
00:08:17,730 –> 00:08:30,090
and just have fun with it I forgot to

202
00:08:30,090 –> 00:08:31,770
mention the last app that I use which is

203
00:08:31,770 –> 00:08:33,240
called preview and it allows you to

204
00:08:33,240 –> 00:08:34,950
layout your pictures and see what order

205
00:08:34,950 –> 00:08:38,429
your photos would look best in you can

206
00:08:38,429 –> 00:08:40,169
also add captions and save it so when

207
00:08:40,169 –> 00:08:41,520
you’re ready to post you have it all

208
00:08:41,520 –> 00:08:44,490
right there and you can edit pictures in

209
00:08:44,490 –> 00:08:45,810
this app but I don’t recommend it

210
00:08:45,810 –> 00:08:47,370
because I noticed that this app lowers

211
00:08:47,370 –> 00:08:49,260
the quality of your photos so I only use

212
00:08:49,260 –> 00:08:52,550
it to examine the layout

213
00:08:57,960 –> 00:00:00,000
