A couple of flowers, some DIY, and basic Photoshop skills along with a strong creative vision in mind is all you need to make a stunning image. If you are starting out in photography and want to get into fashion, beauty, or fine art but have a rather small budget, you should definitely look at this inspiring behind-the-scenes video of Bella Kotak.
Kotak is an amazingly talented fine art photographer based in Oxford, U.K. In the video above you’ll discover how she uses close to nothing to create spectacular photography. She shows every step, from the preparation to the shoot, and even the different layers she used to edit her image.
This video is proof that if you are buying more new gear as an excuse for poor work, that you should surely reconsider your approach to photography. No need for fancy lighting, a full crew, or anything of the sort, even though it does help. The simplest of locations can make a beautiful background, a lovely friend can become a model for a day, and Photoshop can help a bit where budget or means fall short. Her approach is extremely inspiring, and every photographer can learn from it.
