Studio Tour: Jennifer Young of I ART U
Wow, a studio tour with one of our favorite bloggers and photographers, Jennifer Young! Jennifer runs a blog that needs no introduction, I ART U. Read on to learn tips of the trade from Jennifer along with secrets from her studio.
Meg: Is your current studio space ideal? If not, what would you like to do to make it perfect?
Jennifer: My current studio space isn’t ideal, but it works for now. My husband and are renting a tiny one bedroom house, and since there wasn’t an extra room, we converted the small dining room into a creative working space. Ideally, I’d love to have my studio be in a separate room—it’s so easy to get distracted with the way things are set up right now! I can’t complain though…I’m lucky to have a space to work and be creative/inspired in!
Meg: How does your client photography work differ from the photography you feature on your blog?
Jennifer: My style when comparing the two is similar across the board. The main difference with my client photography work is that it showcases people—real emotions, beautiful and raw moments, connection, etc. A lot of the work on I ART U is just capturing what I see and the beauty of the daily.
Meg: My favorite thing about your photographs are how incredibly intimate they feel. Can you give our readers some tips on how to take intimate photographs?
Jennifer: Thank you so much! My favorite way to create more intimate images is by shooting what is in front of me—pulling out the camera on a whim when something catches my eye. I like when things are not overly styled or posed. This, in my opinion, helps create that intimacy and also captures the rawness of current happenings.
Meg: You seem pretty involved in Pinterest and have an amazingly extensive collection of Pinboards. Has Pinterest helped you to get more readers or even more personal clients?
Jennifer: Pinterest is so great! I use it mainly as a personal tool to catalogue inspirations. I don’t post a lot of my own work so I’m not too sure that it has helped direct more readers/clients my way.
Meg: Most of our Studio Tours aren’t photographed by professionals, they’re usually photographed by designers and illustrators with a keen visual eye. Do you have any tips for great interior photography for our future studio tourees?
Jennifer: I’m still learning a lot in this area! Shooting interiors is fairly new to me. I’d say use as much natural light as possible. Also, capturing wide shots as well as vignettes help show off the character of a space!
