  • Hi I'm Eugenieferalcreature.

  • We're in downtown.

  • We're currently scouting for cool spots for me to do my OOTD, outfit of the day.

  • Because I had consistent quality content, Instagram featured me on the suggested user list too.

  • So that helped boost my numbers by like a quarter of what you see now.

  • I started a couple of months after Instagram's inception, so I had no idea what I was doing.

  • When I'm searching for the perfect spot to take a photo, if I'm at home I look for really clean crisp architecture,

  • And if I'm abroad, then I look for architecture that fits the vibe of whatever city I'm in.

  • In OOTD, is a hashtag used mostly on Instagram, but it means "outfit of the day".

  • I do ootds almost every day.

  • Ok, so I am actually five three, possibly five two but I'm in denial.

  • So whenever people take pictures of me, I always ask that they squat and take a picture of me angled up so I look taller,

  • Or else I get little tiny legs.

  • We don't want that.

  • The people who take my photos, if it's on the iPhone, it's whoever I'm with, even my mom, my dad,

  • But if it's on, through DSLR, then I have my photographer Randy take my photos.

  • One --

  • Take a couple.

  • Ok.

  • Good? Yeah.

  • He's got it, he's got it.

  • When I was like 18, I thought I wanted to be a photographer, but that's before I knew I was really bad at it.

  • I quit but being an Instagramer has really opened my eyes to new perspectives and I can't say I'm anywhere near as talented as a photographer.

  • But it has opened my eyes to how the photographer sees the world.

  • I have been coloring my hair since I was 15.

  • I did all the crazy colors in high school.

  • I had like dip dyed hair before it was even a thing.

  • I recently stopped a couple of months ago because I wanted to go back to blonde, and I noticed that people didn't like it as much.

  • I think my fans know what looks good on me, so I have colored hair again.

  • I think people used to be surprised that you can make money off Instagram,

  • but I find that nowadays less and less people are surprised because Instagram is such a huge part of everybody's life, you know.

  • Some brands I've worked with are Acura, W Hotels, Puma, nowadays I blog maybe every other day, because I'm so busy.

  • But I think you should Instagram every single day.

  • I'm gonna try to get a good Instagram food photo for you.

  • I don't like place mats.

  • We're taking the place mats out.

  • The cups, the condensation has left like rings on the table so you wanna clean that up.

  • And it doesn't need to be like super lined up, parallel to the table or anything, it's kinda nice to see it a little askew.

  • I like to get it from an eagle's eye point of view.

  • Uneditted.

  • So I like to edit my photos through VscoCam.

  • My favorite filters are S2 and A6.

  • The biggest hurdle for this photo was retouching all the little specs on the table because the dust was really prominent in this photo.

  • I retouched the stains on the silverware, the dust on the table.

  • It's just like photography in general, you know, nothing's gonna be perfect right when you capture the photo.

  • So you need to fix it.

  • I figure that if you can make a photo better, then why not?

Hi I'm Eugenieferalcreature.
