I love blogs with great pictures – they inspire me because I am a very visual person! I’ve been on an adventure trying to improve the photos on my own blog. Last Spring I broke down and bought a Canon Rebel XS.
I still haven’t mastered the art of night or low light photography, but I think I am getting pretty darn good at using natural light for my photos.
Here is how I do it…
Our breakfast nook has three windows which allow the light to pour in all throughout the day. This is where I set up at.
I gather my background supplies.
- A box
- A poster board
I set the box up and tape the poster board to it.
I set it up so that the light is shining onto the poster board.
Get close and take the shot.
Sometimes to change it up I use wrapping paper or scrapbook paper for the background.
I use this technique a lot!!!
When I share recipes…
and when I do crafts.
I hope this will help you take better pictures too! Just find an old box, get out the tape, and buy a piece of poster board ($.50 at my local Wal-Mart!).
I’ll be linking this up to Photo Friday at The Hollie Rogue on Friday!
