So I’m no professional photographer. And that’s certainly no secret. I’ve been thinking about purchasing a better camera for a while now, but have been without the necessary funds. However, I like to think that since starting my blog in February, my photography has improved.
I’m still using a little FugiFilm point and shoot, but have learned a few photography tricks along the way.
Today I’m sharing my top three photography tricks.
1. Use natural lighting. I prefer being outdoors, in the shade (and some of my favorite photos have been taken in overcast weather, like these vintage deer antlers).
3. Use a white sheet or piece of fabric (I use a LARGE piece of white muslin) as your backdrop. Try to get rid of wrinkles and pull it nice and tight (pin it up on the wall//outside of the house//etc.) It creates a studio look, enables you to edit contrast and brightness in photoshop, and generally improves the quality of your image. The first two times I used the white backdrop were for my vintage scarf collection and my summer’s harvest posts. I was so [pleasantly] surprised with how well the images turned out.
These are the tricks I use almost every time I take photos. And for the time being, they suffice!
Do you have any other sweet photography tricks? I’d LOVE to hear yours…
P.S. Monday is the day that big changes come my way. I start a full time job. While working two part time jobs. Here’s to hoping//praying everything goes well! 🙂 I promise to stick to blogging!
