We know you love showing off your latest Brahmin finds. Ever wonder how to take the best pictures of your Brahmin and get featured in our content? Well, we sat down with the team to give you some tips and tricks to make sure your Brahmin looks her best!
Our Senior Photographer, Rachel Rednor, reminds us to try and get as much natural lighting as possible, whenever possible. No matter where you are, make sure you have the light shining on you and your bag from the front. If you’re taking a shot outside, the best times to shoot are when the sun isn’t highest in the sky, that’s generally earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon. This helps with more flattering shadows.
Framing & angles
Creative Director, Michele Honein echoes, Rednor, saying, “Keep your background and props simple. You want the bag to be the hero of your shot.” Another thing Honein stresses is knowing what space you’re working in, are you filling a rectangle or a square? One requires more focus in the edges, while a square can be more simple to frame. Knowing where you’re sharing your photo is a good place to start. Squares are great for grid posts and sharing to your timeline, while rectangles are optimal shapes for stories.
How to get featured
Our brilliant Social Media, Influencer & PR Strategist, Chelsea Deakin, has some tips for if your heart is set on getting featured on our channels, “Make your Brahmin the focal point of your photo.” Deakin reminds us that competing brands/logos/prints take away focus from your bag. She agrees with the rest of the team that a background that doesn’t distract from your bag is super important, adding, “Simple, bright and clean is best!”
We want you to think about what your bag uniquely means to you. Why do you love your Brahmin? Highlight that and we’ll be sure to see that passion. Take these tips and get sharing! We’ll see YOU #inbrahmin soon enough!
