selfie how I take photos

People often write me asking me this, and I want to share openly what happens in every detail at least in my case:

First, It has to be stated clearly that this is not my job, so I do this (blogging and IG & social media) for fun as a way to stay connected.
And since this is not my job, there is no paycheck coming from the content I create so I wouldn’t recommend my “behind the scenes” strategy to anyone who is looking to do this as an actual job.

So here we go; Photographs facts:

  1. I use my phone camera (most of the times not even the best quality rear camera but the selfie front camera haha)
  2. I NEVER NEVER ask my husband (or boyfriend when he was my boyfriend) to take pictures of me, I am too shy for that, & I would be soo uncomfortable asking him to take a photo of me so often, so 99% of the photos you see are taken by self timer, with the phone on a weird position somewhere around or in a shoe and also plenty of selfie (with my own arm) photos. XD The other 1% are some photos where my husband enters a the room and Im doing something funny so he takes a photo, this happens often; he enters home or a room with his phone camera on to capture “my weirdness” infraganti.
  3. Stories are much more natural than you think, I don’t think to much around them, stories actually take only 10 to 15 seconds at the time, so even when there might be a day when you see I have shared 15 stories if you make the math 15 stories of 10 secs in average only takes around 2.5mins!!! so the key for stories is being spontaneous.


Blog facts:

The blog started as a way to get use to writing constantly. It has been found that writing is one of the best “brain workouts”. It keeps your mind healthy and creative. So here I am trying to write often and sharing it with who ever would like to read it 🙂

It is about the subjects that I find interesting and enjoy sharing about: coding, yoga, digital marketing, life hacks etc.

The blog is every platform where I get to share in different ways: the website, the IG (of course), the podcast, twitter, or FB. I share in all in different ways also, to stay on top of social media strategies and learnings while practicing with my own “brand”.

Ads facts:

There have been some ads or collaborations in my IG, but only when it is relevant to me and it is something I have actually used and recommend. As I mentioned before this is not where my income comes from, I always have a full time job even if it is not in an office, I am working on my own consulting company. And that is how I pay the bills.  So if you see ads, just give some ❤ because it is something I actually recommend.

Hope this one answer most of the “behind the scenes” questions! 😀
