Tip #1

Make Yourself Comfortable

Take a start from the comfiest area of your home – your bedroom. You might not have posted pictures of you lying down on the bed because it needs enough space for the photographer to make the post-work. To make the perfect pose, use your bed and a flower vase.  If it is sent by someone special, express your happiness by looking at it lovingly and let your personal photographer capture the moment.

Add Mirror

Play with Colorful Exposure

This one will surely leave your Instagram followers in awe. Use lighting exposure to capture something new and fresh.  The best way to do this is to use time-lapse with light exposure to create trails and effects.
