5 Things Photographer Monica Wang Swears By While She's On Set

Getting the perfect shot can seem easy, but real photographers know there's more to it than meets the eye. Just ask Monica Wang, the owner of a gorgeous event venue and photo studio in Los Angeles called The Revery. While equipment is important, for Wang, it's also about setting up the shot. "I love capturing all things interiors and lifestyle-related and on days when I am on-site, I love to create a beautiful and peaceful working environment that sets the tone for a productive and focused day," she shares with SwearBy.

The next time you're creating some content for social media or simply just want to have a workspace that encourages creativity, here are some of the things that she swears by when she's on set.

The Little Market Ethiopian Cotton Hand Towel Natural

I am constantly in need of photo props for lifestyle shoots and this linen cloth towel from The Little Market is something I swear by! It provides the perfect amount of texture in photos, and I love that it supports artisans in Ethiopia.

The LARQ Bottle

I drink a ton of water and I always have this Larq bottle beside me so it is easily accessible throughout the day! It instantly sanitizes your water with a push of a button by using UV-C LED light, and the packaging is also so chic! It has become my favorite water bottle of all-time for its design and functionality.

elitehood iPad Tripod Stand

On shoot days, I always sync images from my camera to my iPad so I can view the images on a larger screen as I work. This tripod is so lightweight and handy, and makes taking perfect photos that much easier. I use it every day while on set, and it’s also perfect for watching Netflix or doing workouts in the evenings.

Entireworld Loop Back Sweatshirt

I am a creature of comfort and I have to be comfortable while I am working. I live in this sweat set from Entireworld. The grey melange is my favorite color and it is almost embarrassing how often I wear this! If I could wear it all day every day, I truly would.

Trudon Abd El Kader Candle

A beautiful scent instantly changes my mood and I adore this candle from Trudon. It smells so good that I wish it followed me wherever I went. The moment I light this candle, it magically transports me to a different headspace and a lush land of Moroccan mint.
