Photo Perfection: Get The Best Shot

When you’re not a trained or a professional taking the perfect photo can be nothing but a chore. It can be frustrating to have see a constant reel of bad photos coming up, one and the other and each worse than the last. But there are ways around this, ways that you can ensure the photos are better and make you and the people you’ve taken a photo of happy. You may already use some of these tips, but they can give you ideas and stoke your creative spirit, giving you a new motivation to re-enter your passion and stick at it, getting the photos you’ve always wanted. Here’s how to get the best shot.

Don’t Rush The Holiday Snaps

If you rush the holiday snaps you could go home feeling disappointed. Quick fire photos are sometimes okay, but usually you’ll pick something up that ruins the shot. Take your time. Stop for a moment to take the picture you want and retake it if it isn’t what you wanted. Sure, you may be on the clock, but it doesn’t take too long to take a photo.

If you’re s specific camera user, for example, a FujiUser, then check out tips that relate back to that brand. It’s much easier applying specific tips. You should also think about the lens when you are on holiday. Primarily because you don’t want the biggest one to lug around but you do want a decent shot, so take something half decent. Take your time, wait for the right angle and don’t want. You want memories to cherish, not awful photos that you have to look back on.

Don’t Be Afraid To Edit

Sometimes there will be something inevitable in the way of your shot or that one little blemish that ruins everything. In this digital age why not use everything that is at your disposal. Upload your photo to the computer and use some kind of editing technology, such as photoshop, to make it what you want. Certain purists argue against this, ignore them. You want the best photo then make it the best photo. It’s done by everyone all over the world. You can pull out the annoying bird who flew across your range just as you pressed the take button, or beef up the brightness a little bit. Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget that is a legitimate option.

Light Is Your Friend

The more light you have the better the shot will be. If there is a cloudy day, come back when it is sunny. Light makes all the difference in photography. You want to take the brightest photos you can. The same applies indoors. If you look at the professionals they always seem to use light rigging to get the photo they want. Just turn the lights on before taking the snap. Ensure it is the one you want it to be. The recipient will be happier with this too. Light is every photographer’s ally, expose your shots to it as much as physically possible.

What I Wish I’d Known Before Starting a Blog

When you first set out to start a blog, there are many different things to consider. To make a success of it, whatever your end goal is, then there are several different things that you should do. Some will make success more likely than others. Or they will make things happen for you more quickly than others will. So here are my top tips of things I wish I’d known before starting a blog.

Go Self-Hosted

There are a few different blogging platforms to start a blog on. But the most popular two are Blogger and WordPress. The thing is that there are some restrictions on those platforms. The free WordPress.com, for example, is restrictive on how you can earn money. Because, basically, it is against their terms of service to do so. So if you want to start your blog to earn money, then it is a good idea to get self-hosted WordPress. So will need your own domain and a web hosting service, like Godaddy, SiteGround or TSOHost, for example. Then you just need to start setting up Godaddy or SiteGround web hosting (whichever host you have chosen). Not only will it help to make your blog look a lot more professional, but it will open up your potential a whole heap.

Use a Domain Email

There have been several studies carried out about trustworthiness when it comes to email addresses. Many people see a service or a blog that has a @gmail.com email address and don’t see it as reliable or professional as using your domain email address. So it would be something like name@yourdomainname.com. It looks a lot more professional. So if you want to contact brands or want to start selling things through your blog, it looks much better. When you set up a domain, it will come with one or several email options. So just check with the web hosting provider that you choose.

Get Social Media Savvy

You can be writing amazing content, but if there is no way for people to find it, then it can be completely wasted. So share your posts through social media. Having a few different options is a good idea, as you’ll capture different audiences with each type. Twitter is important for working with brands. So if that is a focus of yours, then make sure you are on there and start to build up a following.

Know Your SEO

If you’re completely new to the Blogosphere, then SEO can be a little confusing. What does it even stand for? Search Engine Optimisation is key to getting your posts seen when someone searches for something. If you’re a travel blogger and want your packing tips to be seen, for example, then making your post SEO-friendly will help when someone searches for that. People are quite likely to search for that kind of thing online. So you want your post to be the one that they click on. There are plugins like Yoast that are a good idea to install, as they can guide you to what is good SEO for a post and what is bad.
