My basic Photography Tips

I wanted to share with you all my FIVE easy photography tips to help you take better photos.

NUMBER 1

Using natural light, do you have enough? Are you taking pictures in front of a window? Are you outside? Make sure there is enough light (not a dark corner of a room or in deep shade), also, not in direct sunlight, this will be too harsh. Gentle light diffused through a window or tree is perfect!

NUMBER 2

Have you checked your layout? Are your products complimenting one another? Is there enough “white space” around your subjects? Is it pleasing to the eye?

NUMBER 3

Do my colours compliment one another? Is one colour standing out too much? Do I need to add a colour or take away a colour? Are all my elements present in the image?

NUMBER 4

Is my camera or my phone on the right settings to take a picture? Do I fully understand how my camera or phone works to enable me to take a good picture?

NUMBER 5

Taking a leaf from Mari Kondo, does my set up make me happy? Do I like what I’ve done? Does my photo speak what I wanted it to say?

Five easy check points to use to help you take great photos!

I love these tips! I was hoping you’d share something like this after your food photography course. I’m really trying to up my photo game on Instagram, so this is great.
