How to Better Your Blogging Photography

Hello Everyone,

Blog photography is such an important thing when blogging, its not the be all and end all but it is so important if you want your blog to make an impact! When I first started my blog I didn’t really pay much attention to my photography, I just took the photo and placed it on the post. There wasn’t much editing that went on. When you realise how much of a difference editing makes, then you will never go back to not editing them.

Props

Taking the time to find props such as flowers can make such a difference to a picture as it can make it all come together. Having the product on its own in a picture doesn’t tend to appeal to a lot of people as it doesn’t catch the attention.

Lighting

Lighting is so important. You don’t have to be in the most lit area ever but having some sort of light, even sunshine can make the biggest difference and can make editing a lot easier. Lighting can make the biggest difference to a photo. Try and stay away from artificial lighting, or any sort of lighting that is of a yellow tone, as they tend to decrease the quality of the photos and can change the colours of the photo and the products in it.

Editing

Editing can be the make or break for pictures. There are a lot of ways to edit your pictures but the most common that people use is the editing tools that they offer on Instagram, they tend to be my go to for when I want to quickly edit my pictures but they tend to do a very good job when you learn how to use the tools to edit them. Some people like to use Adobe Photoshop to edit their pictures but I feel that takes too long as there are a lot of details in Photoshop, I always find it hard to stop editing them! haha

Camera Quality

This isn’t particularly a tip to help camera quality but it is just a little reminder that you don’t need to invest in an expensive camera to take good quality content, all you need to do is utilise what you have got. I used my phone for majority of my instagram and blog photos and have received so many comments on them, so definitely don’t go out spending hundreds on a camera for no reason.

So that’s e

    [ Smiles ] That is good advice.

    Unfortunately, too many bloggers upload poor quality pictures on their blog.

    Thanks for the tips! Do you have some advice on how to edit the photos properly?

    Thank you, all of these tips are extremely helpful. I also, love using instagram most to edit my photos. As you said Photoshop is great but, once you get into it, it can take quiet a bit of time with all the amazing features.

    • October 30, 2017 / 10:15 am

      yeah I completely agree ๐Ÿ™‚
