Photography Tips for Bloggers!

If you’ve been following me since the beginning, you would notice that my photos have gotten a little bit better. Before, I used to just take pictures wherever whenever, but after fixing up my room I realized that the sun reflects quite perfectly on my bed. I began to take photos by placing my items on my bed sheet (white) and snapping photos – the white contrast with the lighting improved my pictures significantly. I have a point and shoot camera, and have recently started playing around with the features. I decided to search for some resources and then I came across a blogger who wrote, “I’ll show you guys some tips… but I’ll leave out some important things because… obviously for reasons.” Well, as a blogger – I don’t want to do that. Blogging may be a source of income for some, but not for me. I want to grow with my readers and help them improve also! Here are a few resources and guides that I have found – pertaining only to Photography.

Slowly Learning… photoshoot at Corona del Mar

  Behind the Scenes at Corona Del Mar I’ve worked in Newport Beach before, but have never gone to any beach near there. Actually, I’m not a beach gal – I hate the beach, the sand, basically almost everything about it except for the salty air. Weird right? Maybe I take it for granted since I used to live about a 15 minute walking distance from it but what can I say? You wouldn’t find me anywhere near there. It was a very last minute shoot, we were supposed to go to the Dog Park & take pictures. My friend’s friend is a professional photographer and always goes on shoots so he offered to teach me how to use my old camera a Canon 9g. So, off I went… to a guy’s house that I never met more than 2 times, luckily my friend offered to come along. The drive was about 40 minutes and he posted on FB asking if anyone wanted to model and these two girls came along. They were friendly, about 19 and very …

Heritage Park Photoshoot

#Behindthescenes Heritage Park Photoshoot! 18600 Bloomfield Ave, Cerritos, CA 90703 I am super excited to write this post… so excited that I quickly hurried home, pestered my photographer friend (Patrick) and edited all my photos (that I took myself). This was taken with my little point & Shoot (the same one I gave Brandon for xmas). Just because you have a inexpensive camera doesn’t mean you can’t take nice pictures!!!  Here’s a little recap of what happened.. It was actually a horrible horrible horrible day. I was already running late for my 4pm appointment with my models (just two of my best friends) & my photographer. I got there early, so that’s how I was able to grab all of these wonderful shots. If you’ve never been to Heritage Park before, then please take your children or even your spouse here! It’s wonderful.    Heritage has so many buildings inside it’s “Little Island”. There’s even a castle (sorry no pictures because I was too lazy to walk around). Yay! Each “house” has slides, stairs, little ramps. Brandon & …
