Did you know that January is International Creativity Month?
To celebrate Maxim and I decided to challenge ourselves to shoot and model for each other for a “15-minutes photoshoot challenge”. I shot Maxim. He shot me. Who did better? Go to my Instagram Stories to vote on the best portrait, angle, movement, and more categories now!
Follow these 4 simple steps to do this challenge:
1) Pick an outfit. We picked similar vibes with our outfits – clean silhouettes, subtle colors, grown-up fits.
2) Pick your props. We picked pampas grass – my favorite to block windows in NYC and now to pose with 🙂 A sheer curtain on top of a chair finished our set.
3) Set Time Limit. We gave each other a 15-minute time limit to get the best shots.
4) Set the mood. Finally, we picked music to model and shoot to. My vibe was Rihanna’s “Unapologetic” album and Maxim picked George Clanton, a vaporwave/trip-hop artist.
Challenge yourself and your partner (or a tripod!) to do this 15-minute photoshoot challenge. Just remember to pick your outfit, props, set a time limit and pose to music that matches the mood! Tag @opalbyopal and @maximsaidso and use hashtag #MaximalPhotoChallenge and I would love to see what you Gems come up with. Oh, and don’t forget to vote in my stories!
