Simple Photography Tips For Bloggers

Simple Photography Tips For Bloggers

Photography tips i hear you say yes thats right I’m going to give you some tips that will hopefully help you improve those blog images or just your general photography either way I’m here to help.

1. Make sure you have decent light using natural lighting outside at around 12-3pm is the best but you can also use studio soft boxes but those are expensive so if you have a budget you could use desk lamps they give nice effects.

2. Get that image straight there is nothing worse than a wonky image if you can turn on your camera frame lines do so its useful and also using a tripod is a must.

3. Get out of auto and use the Manual mode sounds daunting i know but you have more control over the Aperture Shutter Speed And ISO, You can get light meter mobile apps that allows you to measure the light so it gives you a perfect image and just decrease or increase the aperture or shutter / iso speed accordingly for the look you need

4. Composition when photographing try and keep the background clutter free use a natural white backdrop or a brick building can be good backdrop for images keep unrelated and unnecessary things outta the photo.

5. Be yourself find your own style don’t copy others what works for them might not work for you.

6. When editing keep it simple just do light edits and experiment with black and white and color adjust the white balance & levels accordingly Photoshop,Aperture Or even iPhoto on the mac are great for editing on windows you can use Photoshop or Gimp (Which is FREE) or lightroom.

7. Just practice there aren’t any set rules so to speak so just mess around with a few setting and see what works for you .

These are just a few tips as a starting point let me know if you’d like some more in depth and get more explanatory into shutter speed aperture & iso and the different lenses you should use for different scenarios.

My Current Film Camera Favorites February 2014

My Current Film Camera Favorites February 2014

My Current Film Camera Favorites February 2014

Hey everyone so those that know me know that photography is something close to my heart so in today’s post I’m going to talk about the film cameras that I’m currently using and the film I’m using in them.
Now why not use digital i hear you say well my answer is i do but sometimes i like nostalgia and the ability for me to slow my day photographing down and as you are limited to either 24 or 36 exposures or in some case 12 depending on the film type you use so it gives you time that you can use and think about the composition & exposure.

My first Film Camera that I’m currently using is the Olympus OM10 released in 1972 so that makes this camera 43 years old and it still works a charm I’ve always got a 50mm F1.8 Lens on this camera which gives you excellent depth of field.
The film i use in this camera is ilford HP5 B&W and Kodak Portra Color Film if anyone is interested in using film for photography i highly recommend using this and you can pick them off eBay for about 20-30 pounds.

The second film camera I’m currently using a little bit of a special one its the Mamiya RB67 Pro S this camera is from 1970 and is 45 years old this also works like a charm and was once and still is regarded as the studio king of cameras unlike the Olympus OM10 this camera uses 120 film which is a larger image capturing media the film i use with this is Kodak Portra Ilford HP5 & T-Max

These cameras are my current favorites and the ones i use changes overtime as i have many film cameras that i can use so if you like this post i will do some more posts like this below is some images i have taken using the film cameras and some images of the cameras themselves so you can enjoy the beauty of them as much as i do.
