hey everyone so today we are doing a very exciting video in this video we are doing the ugly location photo challenge so basically if you've never seen this challenge before I think making Gabby started it I'm not exactly sure don't quote me on that but basically what you do is you go into like normal stores or like random locations that buy fault maybe aren't super beautiful to look at and you try and get a professional looking photo I don't know if that describes it perfectly but you'll trust me you'll catch on throughout the video so one of my friends here on YouTube is actually photographer and we both thought this video would be so fun to do so we linked up to do this video and let's just get into it okay guys so we're at Irene's right now and it's raining so much outside so I'll just touch back when we're inside so here in Irene's house this is he's going to be taking the photos for us the first shot my mom was in charge of filming and it's out of focus have all the clothes laid out here we're planning around where we're gonna go we're kind of just gonna play by ear you know just about go as you want anyway which one be like this one or that one there she's on the camera so all the great angles are thanks to her now I'm really feeling nervous oh I'd rather be behind the scene no one knows who did that okay so we're in the car we're after our first location which is Tim Hortons to match the red by the way I didn't mention but Irene also has a channel yeah I do it's all about photography and Irene being herself so I'll link it down below a lot of my cute dog in there yes if you like dogs subscribe so we thought it would be fun to do Tim Hortons first to represent Canadian girls two coffees no I'm good I've had lots thanks our idea for this video was we were gonna get a donut and we actually ended up finding this like Canada donut so we thought that would work perfectly and we got a Tim Hortons drink because the cups are kind of infamous with Tim Hortons and we were just gonna set it up kind of like I was eating in there and that actually worked out really good because there were all these like Canadian little Flags up the side so it made the picture while we were hoping I haven't actually seen the pictures yet but Irene had said that the background looked pretty good because of these flags so that was a plus and I guess I didn't mention that but Irene sent me all of the pictures in folders so that I can open them live on the video so I haven't seen any of the finished pictures now another disclaimer is I am NOT a model at all at all so much so that I actually have no idea how to pose like a model so Irene was really helping me to position like my hands oh this hands doing something weird Oh your face looks weird like that kind of thing you know one thing I noticed with filming in Tim Hortons is when you're taking like a picture for Instagram with a phone no one really looks or notices but as soon as you whip out a camera everyone's like what's going on what is that yeah the light here is perfect yeah yeah though a tip for anyone tonight wants to take like good pictures and yours always live for the window and get your model like this lit by the window yeah it's gonna give a very nice diffused light okay perfect so I'm so excited to see the finished Tim Hortons picture I'm just going to open up the folder on my laptop okay so there's a few in here let's click the first one oh my gosh this just seriously shows how a good camera makes like a world of difference look how good her lens is the background is so blurred out these are so Wow I don't know what the first steps of getting a sponsorship from Tim Hortons is but I'm hoping that this somehow pushes me towards that Irene is seriously so talented we did a video over on her channel I'll link it on the end of this video you should definitely go watch it but these pictures she is such good work whoa my hair okay see laureen's wink good so we're off to our next destination which is home depot so we're at Home Depot we change the shirt got a new one on and now we just notice the Guardian section is completely empty so we're gonna go in there the second location that we wanted to go to was Home Depot we thought the garden section would be good and just inside with the lights so we headed out now while I was posing in the garden section we were like pretty much convinced that one of the workers there was like plotting to get us kicked out so we were on edge but I'm pretty sure he literally didn't even notice us but we were it's like you get um paranoid and I think he's telling something about me we gotta be quick I think we're done in here you don't know how people are gonna react because some people don't care and then other people are like get out of our store so we had to be careful and we kept eyeing up this guy cuz we're like don't kick us out so we post in quite a few locations sorry tried to get some different angles I basically just let Irene be the mind behind all the pictures because she knows what what looks good she's from behind the lens I'm just the little puppet on the other end yes I understand going in I raise the mind behind it all herb that doesn't even go over this hmm she's calling it though Miah we need to find a party for you do you need time we did one shoot in particular and Home Depot that I was like what am i doing where I laid on the ground a sure way to get kicked out of Home Depot now to see the grand reveal wow there is a lot of pictures in here oh my gosh okay instantly I already know this is my favorite picture we post with some sunflowers I just love sunflowers I don't know and my nails like matched it perfectly this one in the tall trees Wow I love when you take a photo and you have things closer to the lens that are blurred out I just think that looks so cool okay this picture is so cool I remember when Irene showed me this off of the camera it looked really really dark and then after she edited it it looks so bright and nice that's so cool I'm gonna shout out Irene like a million times because without her this video wouldn't have been possible like she took it from like a four to like a 12 out of 10 so we're done in Home Depot we got some good pictures now we're headed to the next place where you think Michael Michaels Canada's gonna be good we changed my shirt by the way for Michael's we're gonna mm-hmm Michael's I was pretty convinced would be the easiest because with this being a ugly location I think Michaels when you walk in there are multiple places you think a picture would look good in and instantly we made a beeline for the flowers because I think that's kind of a go-to for good pictures because it's a flower wall who doesn't want that so we decided to take pictures in the flowers I'm pretty sure those turned out good a fingers crossed we will look in a minute but we also went over and found this like bin full of flowers so me and Irene basically broke the shelf to get it out but don't worry we fixed it and we thought I would pose with that for a little while and then Irene and my mom because my mom was filming they went like crazy in Michael's like I swear we took like a million pictures like everywhere in Michael's and I was like whoa like my head was spinning with how many things we were doing and I just felt like they were going berserk and Michael's getting pictures so okay let's see which ones she decided to edit here we go first picture is actually one of my profile I mean my profiles not that great no this picture though is so pretty I love the pink flowers oh my goodness this one in the blue flowers I love this picture see this is one where a flower is close up to the camera so it's creating like a blurred effect here's me sitting with the bucket yeah okay and this is a picture that my mom was behind she thought it looked cool to have all the like plain wood she thought it was popping I think my favorite one from that group was probably with the blue flowers where I'm just sitting there I really like that picture oh this is really ambitious of us to walk and talk we're done in Michael's now now we're going to probably the final vacation or dollar store – we'll see you can try oh we're done here in the dollar store there wasn't that many opportunities for pictures and it kind of felt like we were gonna get kicked out like we walked in and already had eyes on us so we just decided to do this like little party scene yeah I thought it was really cute I didn't really know how to pose I feel like a lot of times I want to be like sitting when I'm posing because it makes me feel more comfortable like full body shots seem more difficult for me but I don't know I don't know how this one turned out let's just look okay this is actually really cute it's cuz of the coloring I remember she told me because it was fluorescent lights I think it was gonna create like hues of color okay that's actually pretty cute also that picture took us like five minutes to take we were like in and out all right the last place that we decided to go was a gas station here we are new shirt partly because I actually had to fill up my car and also because I had this our shirt so we were like cable what can we do we were actually thinking about going into like a mechanic place and trying to get them to let me like sit on a car but then we were like okay we're not that person let's just go to a gas station and we'll get some pictures filling up my car I know right let's see how these pictures turned out oh my gosh these colors are poppin all of these colors there's like red green yellow orange blue it's so poppin and it looks like it's such a nice day out I am seriously so impressed that I got good pictures I don't know why I had just this weird feeling like I was gonna look like a dweeb and all of them so that was the last picture that we're doing on my channel but we are taking some pictures for Irene's channel and she's going to teach you we're gonna do a little tutorial on how to take some cute Instagram pictures so yeah if you guys want to see that you can head on to my

You are so beautiful, like you can take pictures in a junkyard with a nokia and still be beautiful lol

MsRadicalReviews · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

How is nobody commenting on how edited the photos are?
Like, yes the composition and framing of the photos is good, she's likely using a pretty expensive lens too… But there's probably a HUGE difference between the raw file and the finished product…

The one of the lights in the background make you look like a Brandy Melville model, especially with the top you're wearing

Aisha · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

Brittany Hanson · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

The blurred effect you are talking about is called Depth of Focus or or short DOF.

“How a good camera makes a difference”
Okay but if you don’t know how to use it (manual mode) you will not get pictures like that. Camera can be great but the photographer makes the image !

thesuki561 · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

Am I the only one who thinks Mia could be a model?

翔木蘭 · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

Literally models clothing for the internet

Maddie Heart · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

Aly D · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

Your mom is the cutest 😭🥰 makes me wanna be adopted

Emily Nicole · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

As a photographer myself the lens only plays a little part in how good the photos turn out, what really makes a difference is the photographer and the editing!! Those factors are key!!

ISA’S Vlogs · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

I just notice that her profile pic is one of these

Emi · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

It really helps having pretty friends as a photographer. I hate being in front of the camera but LOVE taking pictures of my friends in different places and poses because they literally would look good sitting in mud

Mel Bern · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am

You guys are an amazing duo!!

Gwenae · May 14, 2019 at 8:41 am
