If you recall, I have a new feature called Behind the Bookstagram. This is where I’ll shine a light on some awesome bookstagrammers and they can explain some of the stories behind their photos. You might even learn a new trick or two for your own photos!
For my first Behind the Bookstagram, I would like to introduce you all to Jane, Anne, and Alice from Alchemy Bookshop!

Here are just a couple of funny and useful techniques I have used to “get the shot”.
My bedroom has absolutely no natural light, so to get those cute, cozy bed pics…. I make a fake bed on the floor 😀
I also have a little table set up where the natural light is the best in my house to be able to easily take a quick pic if I need to take a picture. It has saved SO MUCH TIME. I keep the blanket for the background under the table with a few props and VOILA, instant bookstagram pic.
I use adobe lightroom for my edits with some presets that I bought through lightandairyphotog.com (I have no relationship with them). Well worth the purchase as I normally batch all my photos in one day, taking several hundred photos at one time. It would take FOREVER to edit them without the presets.
