Hey there friendlings,
Let’s face it, I’m pretty sure every blogger has started of with low quality photos and once they begin to improve, they look back at those photos and shake their heads with embarrassment. Or is that only me? If you haven’t gone through such an “omg” moment when your photos get a whole lot better or you’re looking to step up your photography game, here are some quick and easy tips.
#1 Use the Rule of Thirds
Centering your objects in your photographs and learning how to use the correct amount of negative space is important. As time went by, I eventually got to understand how much positive and negative space I need in photographs but if you have no idea where to start, I recommend watching some YouTube tutorials!
#2 Use the Right Amount of Brightness
You don’t want to be taking photos that are hiding certain objects of the photo with a ton of light but at the same time it’s important that you make sure that your photos are not dark. Once again, it’s about finding the correct amount of balance.
#3 Keep Away from Basic Backgrounds
When taking photos of products, I recommend using marble backgrounds or plain white backgrounds, this will really showcase your photographs professionally and allow for your products to stand out unlike if you had a wood background, the wood would stand out.
#4 Make sure your “HDR” setting is on
“HDR” means high-dynamic-range imaging. Have this setting on your phone, camera or whatever device you use for taking photographs as it will optimize the quality of your photographs.
#5 Find a editing software that works for you
I recommend using amazing editing softwares such as Afterlight, Adobe Photoshop and VSCO. If you find that those don’t work for you, browse the web for what you’re looking for in a editing software and I’m sure you will find the perfect editor.
#6 Be Authentic
Capturing what you find to be interesting in your own way only makes your photos better!
Did you go through a time when your photos suddenly started to look a whole lot better?
Hugs and kisses,
