I confer a lot with my twelve year old on what’s hip, and what’s not.
Did you know that fresh actually means cool?
And did you know that tide pods actually taste like candy?
I sure didn’t.
So I asked my three daughters if they wanted to jump on the bandwagon of craft store photoshoots and they squealed with ear piercing glee.
Huh, who knew following the latest trends would make me the “Cool Mom”.
So off we went to Joann craft store.
I can see the allure of this type of shoot, and why the idea went viral. The lighting inside these giant craft stores are utterly terrible: fluorescent, flickering, dull, rage inducing. So the challenge is high to get shots that are exposed correctly, sharp focused, etc.
It’s also fun to “steal” these floral backdrops for a few minutes and then leave the store without actually buying anything.
I paid my twelve year old the sum of $5 to follow me around with my backup Nikon so I could clip together some shaky, yet useable, footage of this shoot.
