Easy, Cheap iPhone Tripod

Spotted an empty coffee cup in the model’s car during a recent location photo session. With her permission, I did a quick conversion into a tripod for my iPhone. And now I’ve gone behind-the-scenes (BTS) crazy.

I’ve been trying to get at least one cool BTS per session lately and the crazy thing is when I post these on instagram and FB – people love them! Easily my most popular social media posts are the BTS posts.

Below are some examples of these posts (they were originally sized for instagram so I just added a bigger border for this blog post):

bts and swimwear photo

I like the above photo series quite a bit. It shows how the world sees me vs how I see the world. Model is Kelly Elizabeth (@thekellyelizabeth on instagram).

Told you I’ve been going a little crazy with the BTS images lately! All thanks to that cheap and easy iPhone coffee cup tripod!

Redhead model is Alicia (@aliciapk and the studio model in the blue tank is Ashley (@ashleynicolebracelin08).

And one note – I have definitely stopped posting frequently to this blog. Most of my work is coming from referrals and instagram right now so I’ve really let the blog slip. It’s a lot of work for the ROI. I’ll still try to post a couple of times a month but honestly – my instagram @petespringer is the best place to follow my most recent work. I post there almost daily.
