From Flat to Fabulous Photo’s

So many of my friends who ask how I take such fabulous photo’s on a whim with my iphone when I’m out at playgroup.

Here is two photo’s taken practically at the same time.

Which do you prefer? Do you know why you prefer the second one. I do.

(Like all good things in life you need to work out what’s wrong before you can fix it.)

What’s wrong with the following photo’s?

Hover over each one to find out.

Turn your flash off

Flashes cause harsh unflattering light. No one looks good like this.

Check your light

The exposure is wrong. The sky is beautiful exposed but the subject is too dark.

Taken over head

When taking photos of people, especially kids try taking the photo at their head height first.

Get Closer to your subject

When taking a portrait. Get closer to your subject, pay attention to the finer details.

Taken Overhead

Parent takes a photo from their perspective rather than the most flattering and better composition.

Avoid Distracting Backgrounds

Hopefully this has helped you realise that I to have taken my fair share of bad photo’s too. We all have to start somewhere. 

Now you know where you're going wrong... Check out how to fix it

    for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  6. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  7. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who had been conducting
    a little research on this. And he actually ordered me dinner because I discovered
    it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….

    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about this issue here on your web page.

  8. Right here is the perfect website for everyone who hopes to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you
    (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject that has been written about for decades.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!

  9. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
    structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. Hey there! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours require a
    large amount of work? I am completely new to running a
    blog however I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so
    I will be able to share my own experience and views
    online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!

  12. Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off
    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Appreciate it!
