Weekly Photography Tip

This week’s tip will help you to capture all the shots you need for your blog post – especially if it is a tutorial like we offer here!

It’s simple – create a shot list. When I photographed weddings, this was really an important step even before I ever pulled my camera out of its bag. It was important not to miss any shots – especially if I couldn’t re-create them!

For blogging, you might be able to re-create some of the shots but if you are painting a piece of antique furniture, you only get one chance to capture it.

Taking just a few minutes to think through all of the shots you will need for a blog post will save you hours of frustration in the end! Nothing is worse than realizing you missed a shot while you are writing the post. Trust me on this one!

This is a tip I don’t always use and I have paid a price for that. Shooting still shots for my blog and also recording videos for my YouTube channel – well, let’s just say it’s been messy at times! Create a shot list so you don’t miss any important images for your post!

If you are interested in the gear I use, check out my Amazon Photography Equipment! Feel free to ask any questions about my gear!

Now, let the party begin!

  4. Happy Summer Cindy and thanks for hosting! I would love to know how you master getting both those photography stills for the blog post and video, especially when you’re doing it solo.

    1. Thanks for asking Marie. I haven’t mastered shooting video and still shots but I try to improve my skills each time. I use two cameras – one set for video and the other set for still shots. Both are on a tripod. For the video, I record short clips of the projects. That gives me the opportunity to capture still shots for the blog. Sometimes I get very turned around and forget something but it usually works out! It’s certainly stretching my mind!
