BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY, BRIGHT RESULTS.
Just recently I've had a lot of people asking me how I get my photos so bright.
Whilst I'm no professional, I do have a love of photography (it helps my dad is a pro!)
I find that sticking to just three basic rules is key. So I'll let you in on these....
Rule 1: LIGHT.... it's all about the light! It doesn't matter if your using your phone, point and shoot
or a DSLR. If you have natural day light then your half way there! You dont want bright sun shine, but
a filtered bright cloudy day is best. Find the lightest place possible for taking your pics like a conservatory or summer house. If you have a big camera then you can adjust the shutter speed but
Let's keep it simple for now.
BACKGROUND: through trial and error I have found that a bright background really helps.
A chalky white is best as it absorbs the light without pinging it back. Colours will really stand out
Against a clear beautiful back drop.
SUBJECT MATTER: after a while you tend to find your mojo, what things do you love?
I find it easier taking pics of pretty things I love as I'm more passionate about them.
For instance- flowers, pretty china and fabric are my faves.
My favourite photo app is still Instagram, I use it daily and love the new features.
I tend to use the brighten, contrast etc controls, and very rarely use filters now.
Anyway I hope this helps! Simple is key!
Have a good week end everyone!
