Let's talk about photography a bit. I love photography and really enjoy taking photos of everything and editing them, trying new apps, filters,etc. That's probably why I love instagram so much, I work really hard on my theme and I'm happy with how my feed looks right now (my instagram is @psminimalist if you want to follow me) In today's post I'm gonna share with you my best photography tips for beginners. If you don't know where to start, hopefully this post will help you. I think that photos are one of the most important things about blogs, they are the first thing everyone see when they visit your blog so it's important to make them the best they can be. I take my photos with my digital camera and my phone and I'm really happy with how they look. Anyways, here's my beginners guide to photography

LIGHTING-Lighting is the first thing people will mention when it comes to photography and I'm sure you all heard it before, and maybe got a little bored of reading the same old thing over and over(?) but it really is very important so I have to mention it!  Natural lighting is the best for taking photos and I recommend taking your photos close to a window to get the best possible lighting. I know it can be a little hard during autumn and winter, that's actually the problem I've had with taking my photos lately but I try to take photos in bulk to take advantage of those (really) rare sunny days.

BACKGROUND-Another important thing to consider before taking your photos is finding the perfect background. I recommend choosing plain one colour background/backdrop that isn't too busy so the subject is in focus. I recommend white background(it can be any white surface or paper you have at home), wooden or marble backdrop or any interesting surface you have at home. Look around your house, you never know what you'll find.

PROPS-Using props is a great way to make your photos more interesting and fill in the blank space. When you're taking a photo of a product it can look a bit plain and boring so adding a few props can really help. My favourite props to use are: candles,flowers,coffee,nail polishes, phone,laptop (and other similar devices) makeup products,accessories,magazines,books,notebooks,etc.

EDITING-On the photo above you can see the photo I edited and how it looked before editing. It's not hard to choose which one looks better,right?! I didn't edit much, I just played around a bit with brightness,contrast,saturation and sharpen the photo. That's pretty much all I do with my photos, I just make them a little brighter and the colours more vibrant. I edit my photos with PicMonkey which is free online tool for editing photos. I also use it for collages, graphics and writings. It's really simple to use and has so many different options, it's like all your favourite apps in one! That's how I edit my photos, it's really simple but it makes a huge difference.
