DIY process content creation for Tidewater & Tulle

At Kia & Co., we’re all about simplifying the DIY process and helping our clients showcase their value through cohesive imagery. Recently, we had the pleasure of collaborating with Tidewater & Tulle on a project that perfectly encapsulates our approach to DIY process content creation.

Planning Process with Tidewater & Tulle to create content for Craftcut’s products

Working with Chelsea Barton, Tidewater & Tulle’s editor-in-chief, is always a breeze. She’s organized, communicates effectively, and truly understands the vision behind each project. From creating the creative brief to coordinating with Craftcuts, Chelsea ensured that every detail was covered for this DIY process content creation photo session. A video meeting to review the materials and discuss the creative direction helped align our vision for the shoot.

Shooting day for DIY process content creation session

As this was a DIY tutorial, capturing every step of the process was crucial. I focused on shooting both horizontal and vertical images to cater to Tidewater & Tulle’s blog post & social media needs. One unique challenge was incorporating my hands into the shots to provide context for each step. Yes, you read that right – I even had to use my toes to trigger the camera at times!

I made sure to include the following shots for this DIY product shoot:

  • Materials used for each project: A detailed look at all the materials required for each project, ensuring viewers have everything they need to get started.
  • Each step of the process: From start to finish, I documented each step of the DIY process, providing clear instructions for readers to follow along.
  • Resulting project: showcasing the final product in all its glory, ready to impress clients and customers alike.
  • Summary image of all three projects: A visually stunning shot featuring all three projects, offering a glimpse into the creative possibilities.
