How to do an at-home photoshoot

When I was turning 30 back in January, I knew I wanted to do something to commemorate to moment. And do something a bit extra, which is well within my personality. Because, to be fair, it doesn’t take much for me to want to do something extra.

I decided I wanted to do a photoshoot, and to save a few bucks, do it in my home. I’ve admired the work of Philly photographer (and comedian!) Josh Marti, and had asked if he wouldn’t mind photographing this for me. I was so thankful when he said yes, but knew that I had to begin transforming my apartment.

The tools I used to create an at-home studio were:

  • Assorted acrylic paint
  • White bed sheet
  • Command strips for hanging said bed sheet
  • Ring light ($40) from Amazon

I haphazardly painted lines across the bed sheet, to add some more color and dimension to the otherwise blank canvas. I also knew exactly what I wanted to wear, which was half the battle solved.

Once the paint dried, I hung it up in my living room, propped the ring light on a stool – and bam. Studio accomplished.

No photographer? No problem. You could surely achieve the same with a tripod and self-timer.

I was so thrilled with how photos came out (thank you Josh!), and below are some of my favorites ❤
