“This meant setting up and tearing down an entire studio set up at each home (in kitchens, living rooms, on dining room tables, in garages or anywhere we could squeeze us in!) Sometimes we did this up to 3 or 4 times a day!”¨ “¨Between shoots we changed our clothes, disinfected our equipment, stepped in bleach, sanitized our hands and other exposed skin, and used disposable paper backdrops.”
