We asked one of our Knuckleheads Collab Mom who runs the account for @hayeshouse_ for tips on creating great content for aspiring kid influencers and the equipment she uses to obtain great results. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions:
1. Where did you buy your white backdrop?
Instead of buying an expensive white backdrop, I opted for a more budget-friendly option by using faux wood wall paneling that I painted white on the reverse side. This has worked well for me and gives my photos a clean and consistent look.
2. What camera do you use?
I use a Sony a7iii
for all of my photography needs. It's a great camera that offers excellent image quality and versatility.
3. Do you use any extra lights?
I typically only use natural light for my photography. I find that it provides a soft and flattering light that works well for my style. However, if I do need extra lighting, I use a simple ring light or a softbox to achieve the desired effect.
4.Do you have any advice for new influencers?
My advice for new influencers is to find your niche and stick to it. It's easy to get caught up in the pressure to take on any and every brand deal that comes your way, but it's important to stay true to your style and only work with brands that align with your values and aesthetic. Don't be afraid to say no to opportunities that don't feel right for you. Remember, quality over quantity is key.
In conclusion, while having expensive equipment may be ideal, there are budget-friendly options that can work just as well. Sticking to your niche and style is important for staying true to yourself as an influencer. And always remember to prioritize quality over quantity.
