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

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.

When To Take A Break
18th December 2014|BeautyFashionLifestylePhotographyTechUncategorised

When To Take A Break

When To Take  A Break

Sometimes in life you just have to take a break and step back in order for you to go forwards and thats exactly what i did don’t ask me why i just felt i should take time out from all things social and blogging as i felt i wasn’t giving my best and I’m all about giving all you can and not giving half arsed attempts at anything.
For me thats what i felt i was doing i’d lost the motivation for writing and if you know me and follow me all over social media you know i love it and i interact all the time well even that wasn’t interesting me i just don’t know why so thats why i decided id just take some time out and get perspective and my GOD it helps bring you back into the right frame of mind i had a notebook and pen and just used that for thoughts instead of using my phone or computer even though i took time out for about a week for me it was long enough now it might take you longer but id recommend it to anyone who’s been feeling lost or confused in terms of the content they make online weather it be youtube or blog .

it might be hard at first for you too just stop but it will be the best thing you do the signs for needing a break are simple

  1. Lack of motivation
  2. Lack of sleep
  3. Constantly feeling that the content you create isn’t good enough
  4. Loss of interest
  5. Stress
  6. No interest in food
  7. And generally just feeling down

Now those are just a few signs but everyone is different and you might have different ways of coping with lack of motivation but for me a break was needed and i encourage everyone too do the same even if you just take a  weekend or  two you will feel a lot better limit the time you spend creating content as its far far far to easy to get overwhelmed and swamped you don’t need content up everyday by doing that theres a chance you will be rushing and it won’t be the best content you can create.

Ive also found that support helped & there has been a quite few lovely bloggers that helped me out over on twitter and i appreciate the support you AWESOME People have given me you know who you are (ps blog post featuring you lovely people coming soon :P) I’m overwhelmed with the support I’ve got i never knew people cared that much about me and my blog/youtube channel but you do so that means a lot

Anyway i think I’ve rambled enough now just remember if you feel you need a break take it it doesn’t matter how long you take make sure its long enough that you are recomposed and ready and raring to go.

As always much love you people are amazing
