Weekly Photography Tip

You might be surprised to see me here this week since I told you last week I wouldn’t be here. I had planned on being at a blogger’s retreat teaching how to use a DSLR camera for blog photography. But the retreat had to be canceled due to some issues out of the host’s control. It’s unfortunate but sometimes that is how life goes.

The e-book I have been talking about will still be available for purchase next week so stay tuned – I don’t want you to miss the early bird pricing I have for you!

Today’s photography tip is especially for bloggers who share gardening posts. Shooting outdoors might seem like the ideal situation. But if you are shooting in the brightest part of the day when the sun is at its peak, you will have to deal with harsh shadows.

Your camera (no matter how expensive it is!) cannot see the subject when there are drastic differences in bright and dark areas of the scene.

Here are some options when shooting outdoors:

  • capture those beautiful blooms first thing in the morning within two hours of sunrise or late in the day two hours before sunset
  • shoot in ‘open shade’ and position the camera so that it does not include the brights and darks of sunshine and shadow

I hope these tips help all of my gardening bloggers! I plan on sharing more about gardening on our blog so I will be putting these tips into practice.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have about photography. If you have a question, chances are others do too! Let’s share info so others can go grow.

Let’s start sharing! Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!

Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:

  • This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
  • If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
  • DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
  • Please make sure that your images are in a jpeg or png format. If we can’t save your image, we may not be able to feature you. So sad!
