New Feature: Behind the Bookstagram

Posted January 15, 2021 by shooting in Discussion / 20 Comments

Happy Friday, everyone! I’ve had this feature idea for awhile now and I figured it was finally time to get it rolling. I love seeing Bookstagram posts – it’s always exciting to see how people style their photos.

However, have you ever wondered…how do they do that? Yeah, me too!

That’s where this feature comes in–

Behind the Bookstagram

I’m going to feature various Bookstagram photos on my blog and have the creator share what happened behind the scenes. Did the photo take an hour to get right? How many shots did they take? Did they use any editing tools? Were there animals that needed to be cropped out – or moved away from the books?

If the Bookstagrammers have outtake photos they’d wish to share, that would be awesome. You don’t need them to take part though! You just need a Bookstagram photo that you can discuss.

Some of these posts might have a few Bookstagram photos because there isn’t a really long story that goes with it. If someone has a lot to say and/or has lots of extra photos then I’d be happy to give them their own post.

I don’t have a set day of the month I’m going to do these, so please send along your Bookstagram photos and I’ll post when I can!

If you would like to take part (or have questions), please email me: laurenbecker1215 AT gmail DOT com or you can follow and DM me on Instagram!

And yes, I’ll be sure to share my own behind the scenes stories!

    Haha! The story behind pictures really is something for bloggers. If they could see the full picture of what is going on sometimes!

  2. This is great! my bedroom has no natural light so if I’m doing a comfy, bed type photo, I make a fake bed where the light is fantastic in my dining room.

  3. Fun idea! I’m always amazed at how much work some people put into their Bookstagram photos. That’s why I have a nice looking bookcase so I can just put books on it and it already looks nice enough. I just don’t have time for more! (I don’t think that’s much of a story, but if you want one of my photos to share with that little bit of advice, I’d be happy to send one your way).
