, 2/19/2013

Thanks to friendly & wise Etsyians, I am chock full of photography advice. I just bought a new camera, and plan on learning how to use it to makes my photos more professional. Until then, I shall share some of the quick tips I've gotten!

  • The more basic your camera, the more reliant you are on perfect lighting conditions
  • Complicated cameras give you more control, but take the time to practice!
  • "Bridge" cameras could be better for new learners, with a lot of features and lower prices
  • Don't ever use built in camera flash!
  • You want soft white light for product photos; go outdoors on an overcast day, indoors when the sun isn't to harsh, or invest in special daylight bulbs
  • It takes more time to clean up a mess and not make one, a photo program can only do so much! Get your photos done right the first time, before trying to edit away
  • Good lighting and learning your camera settings should amount to minimal tweaking in a photo imaging program
  • For product photos, use a plain background that doesn't distract!
