Pop up studio - Cloud productions

Have you heard of a pop-up selfie studio? It's all about having crazy fun posing in an indoor studio setting, with a DSLR tripod-ed camera. You pick some interesting props, pose and self click with a remote! Nope, definitely not as challenging as selfie-ing with our phone. It was surprising that the kids had more fun than us. They were very much occupied with choosing the props they had like to picture with. This gave them good enthusiasm to taking pictures. Woah! 

Irene from Cloud productions had extended an invite for us to try out this interesting concept. We were initially skeptical about all the hard work of self pose, self click and even self edit photos, but we decided to give it a try, because I would do anything (without threats or risks), for nice family photos. Which we did capture and bring home some great pictures for keepsake. 

Tell me the pics look great!??

Happy 49th Birthday, Singapore!
Irene had kindly edited some of the photos for us, while for others, I cropped to make the photos look more centralized. Photo editing is available at an additional cost of $10 per photo. Just let them know if you need it. If not, most are good as it is, all you need is a good crop. Irene had been very helpful throughout our session, at a point of time, she even gave us ideas on how to pose. No fret, with the props, it seemed almost natural that anyone knows how to position for great captures.

Here are some selfie studio tips:
1. Bring your own props. Something the kids love.
2. We kept losing focus of the center. It was a good idea to have chairs or objects to mark the center.
3. Bring something to bribe the kids. I brought lollipops!
4. Choose a background according to your outfits, or maybe the other way round (They have green, grey, yellow and white background).
