Hello Beautifuls, (I can plural that, right?) welcome to Replica! Let me start off with a little disclaimer: Instagram and YouTube are incredible. They're my homes and favorite places to be. Well, second to my couch with husband on one shoulder and pup on the other. But at best they're a 1.5 way street: I talk, you comment, the end. We never really mix and mingle with EACH OTHER. And that's such a waste of talent.
So rather than just welcoming you to this site, I want to welcome you to the Replica Facebook VIP Community! If you haven't already dropped by, it's a loving and LIVELY place to be.
I know you're part of enough Facebook communities already. Most of them had their moment and are now just hanging out in your profile as relics of past interests. The Replica VIP Community is different. Think of it as a place for us to learn from (and lean on) each other. There are over 13K members right now! That's a lot of support.
Everything about running a business is hard. And, in my experience, photography and styling are some of the hardest of all. For the bloggers and food icons out there, photography is MOST of the battle. For you makers and sellers, it may be the last thing you want to be doing ("ummm I got in this biz to create products, not photographs").
So let's make this photo thing happen TOGETHER! The VIP Community is your place to phone a friend (well, message a friend) about anything you're stuck on: how to do product photography at home, how to take photos of ceramics for a portfolio, what photography equipment you need, or hacks for taking photos of jewelry.
Did someone else post a photo you love? Ask the creator how they created it! If you LIKE a photo you took but don't LOVE it, ask for feedback and suggestions! Our community loves helping you style your photos and helping you take high-quality product photos at home. And don't be afraid to just post your own tips! They will be VERY welcomed. Business and photography are journeys, my friends, and journeys are best when they're shared.
Join and post here, lovelies
All my love and cuddles,
