Pro tips: There are so many things to take into account to get great results on a post! I think focus and lighting are key. Most newer cell phones have professional quality features that can help with this. Learn your cameras features and use them, it makes a world of difference! Also, everyone should use a ring light. Even in the most poorly lit settings, a ring light will help bring your work to life!
Hidden talent (beauty-related): Braids!
Hidden talent: I love figuring things out. Just about anything, really. For example, I just installed new counters in my dispensary area. I trimmed the countertops, installed a new faucet and hooked up all new pipes for the sink.
