Weekend Reading Issue No.3

April 25, 2020

This past week I challenged myself to post a blog post everyday. I’ve never done that before and was looking for a challenge/ something that I could look forward to every day to get/keep me motivated to work, and it worked! So this week, I will continue to try and do a blog post every day, BUT I will also be challenging myself to shoot some of my content. I heavily rely on a photographer when it comes to shooting content for the blog + Instagram, but I want to see if I can work on shooting the little things myself, like products and still life. I’ll be shooting with a Fujifilm xt100 + my phone, so if you have any tips, let me know!

I’ve shared my reading round-up for you all below. Enjoy!
