Weekly Photography Tip
You know by now that my preference for photography is using a DSLR. I know many of you prefer using a smartphone since the cameras on a smartphone are so sophisticated now.
There are many reasons I prefer a DSLR over my iPhone camera, especially for blogging but the main reason is the amount of control I have over the initial capture and the control I have in editing.
I won’t go into all of that in this post but maybe it is something we should chat about in the future. Let me know in the comments if you are interested and we will chat about it!
In the meantime, if you are using your smartphone for photography, be sure to consider the distortion that it will create. And believe me, it will create distortion!
The biggest error I see bloggers make is not paying attention to the object that is closest to the lens.
Whatever is closest to the lens will appear larger. That’s something to consider when capturing images for your posts.
Here is a good habit to get into: take a picture with your phone camera, then look at it with different eyes. Study the image and make sure the subject is correctly proportionate to what you see in real life.
The camera distorts, but your eyes do not. We need to learn to see the image the way the camera sees it and adjust our position and angle to correctly show what the scene is like in person without the distortion of the camera.
This is a skill and it takes practice but you can develop an eye for spotting distortion! 😊

How to Make a Vegetable Trug
Have you heard of a vegetable trug? This is the first I have heard the term vegetable trug but it is something we have used for years to collect veggies and flowers from our vegetable garden. Jennifer from The Everyday Farmhouse has a great design to make a vegetable trug and it looks super easy to construct. Thanks, Jennifer!
Prepare Your Garden for Cold Weather
Kathryn from The Dedicated House is sharing some awesome tips to prepare your garden for cold weather this year. I especially love the forward-thinking idea she shares for next year’s spring garden! Thanks for the ideas, Kathryn!
An Easy Flower Arrangement
With all this discussion on gardening, I thought it might be nice to enjoy the fruits of our labor in our gardens with this lovely post from Leslie at Feet Under My Table. Isn’t this flower arrangement gorgeous?? She’ll show you how to do it with flowers from your yard! Thanks, Leslie!
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!
