It was supposed to be a simple photography gig. Brooke Hudson never wanted to be a pawn in an investigator’s scheme, or working with the ex-boyfriend that broke her heart. Her daily life battles used to consist of finishing college, job hunting, and avoiding traffic. But her mundane routine was disrupted by the promise of a large amount of cash to help find a missing person, and take down a crooked CEO.

If Brooke had known exactly what she was getting into from the start, she might have had second thoughts. Her idea of fun isn’t trying to captivate men she has no interest in, or appealing to their every whim. And she never thought someone would deliberately try to kill her. All she wanted was a job, and in a fit of desperation, she’s gambling in a high stakes game with her life.

I love taking photos, especially for Bookstagram! It’s one the most magical communities on Instagram where I have made so many lifetime friends!  So if you’re new to the community or have been on it for years and just want some inspiration, here are some different angles you can take your photos from!

1. The Flatlay.

Flatlays are a great way to show off the covers of some of your favourite books as well as adding some accessories or flowers to emphasize the main focus that is the book!

2.  Through flowers (or other objects)

Create some intrigue by sticking making the accessories the main objective instead of the book. or, you can shoot through flowers so the flowers are out of focus and the book is.

3. Hands and books

These can be rather tricky. you might need a tripod or someone to take the photo. but in the end, you will love the final product!

4. Close Ups

Sometimes getting up close and personal is a great way to change up your photos!

5. Try some modelling?

#qotp: if you could time travel, where would you go? • • A: a week into the future so I can get my mail faster 👌🏼 • • I'm bringing out my inner Conan Gray and wearing a cap which I do rarely because I've got curly hair and curly hair + hats = the worst hat hair ever. I love Conan's music soooo much he's a real vibe. I'm also still SCREAMING after reading #hiaylm because it broke me and my heart can't take it. Hi I'm a ghost now. • • #bookstagram #reader #bookphotography #reading #book #bookworm #booklion #booklove #booklover #bookaddict #bibliophile #books #bookshelf #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #yabooks #booknerd #bookhoarder #photography #bookish #bookstagramfeature #bibliophilefeatures #feysbookishworld #booknerds
