How To Take Better Photos For Your Blog

When I first started a blog, my one thing was that I would always try to take my own photographs. I mainly said this because I didn’t want to get copyrighted or cause issues down the line for using random photographs. It also made my blog more personal.

I am going to share with you the 5 things you can do to take your own great looking blog photos.

  1. Composition
    Using leading lines, the rule of thirds and focus points is a great way to draw attention to your images. Knowing where to place what in your frame is a very important step to a successful photograph.
  2. Angles
    Taking photographs from different angles is a great way to show off different subjects. I like doing flatlays for lifestyle related photos for example. I like changing up the angles to keep things interesting.
  3. Props
    Props are very important to accentuate photographs. It helps to tie the image together, add a little bit of creativity and adds to the over all appeal of the photograph.
  4. Editing
    I love editing my photos. It adds my own personal style and definitely enhances the photo. You can use Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom or even VSCO (An app for your cellphone) to edit your photos.
  5. Aperture
    Playing around with your F-stop is a great way to draw attention to certain parts of an image. Blurring the background of images makes the picture look more appealing (Depending on what you are going for).
