Weekly Photography Tip
We’ve covered a lot so far, haven’t we? Shooting in manual mode is the most important skill you can learn to improve your images. Your readers will appreciate the beautiful images you share on your blog.
Images tell stories. In the case of a blogger, you are telling stories about homemaking, decorating, gardening, DIYs, and recipes. The images you use to convey those stories are so important in order to convey your message to your readers!
Two things that I spot right away are the brightness and the sharpness of an image. As a photographer (I used to shoot weddings, families, and newborns as a business) I have trained my eye to pay attention to the details in an image. If the image is dark, you can’t see the details. And if the image is blurry (not the kind of soft bokeh we mentioned earlier) the details in the image are lost.
So this week, as a wrap-up for shooting in manual mode, I thought I would give a quick review of the steps to take when shooting in manual mode:
- set your ISO as low as possible – 100-400
- choose your aperture setting as we have discussed to create the look you want
- choose your subject and put your focus point on the subject
- set your shutter speed so that it lines up on the center mark
- press the shutter button and capture the shot!
If you have any questions about photography, please feel free to reach out through the comments or send me an email using the contact form at the top of my blog! I would love to help in any way I can!
You can find the previous tips on shooting in manual mode by visiting the Tuesday Turn About link party tab at the top of my blog. Look for post #’s 137 – 143!
Next week we will be looking at composition! Thanks for hanging with me through these photography tips – I hope you find them helpful!
