I’ve been getting a bunch of similar questions recently, so I thought I’d address a few of them on here
Frequently Asked Questions!
1) Where did you get that awesome shirt?!
I laughed for about a day straight when I first saw this shirt, and apparently all of you were fans as well 😉 Here’s the link to it: http://store.cottonfactory.com/cf-842.html. I have a women’s size small. Let me know if you get one, too
2) You take great pictures — what camera are you using? Any tips for how can I take better photos? Have you ever taken a photography course?
Don’t tell, but… I actually just have a point and shoot!
What’s my secret?
#1 First and foremost: being creative with angles. If this means getting down on hands and knees and looking like a crazy person to get a picture of a tree stump in the sand, so be it 😉
#2 Finding good or interesting lighting (combined with creative angles!).
Especially in terms of food photography, natural lighting is almost always better. If you’re trying to take a picture of food, put it next to a window or take it outside!
Also, don’t forget to use the macro (little flower symbol) setting if you’re taking a close up picture! It makes a huge difference in clarity.
#3 Use the color contrast “auto correct” setting in your computer’s photo gallery.
Sometimes it doesn’t make a difference, and sometimes it really brightens up the contrasting colors in the photo.
So, what camera am I actually using?
I have a Fuji Film FinePix Z20fd. It’s little and shiny red
It’s been great for close up macro shots and daytime scenery in particular.
However, my camera is not so good in dim lighting (aka restaurants… which is why I don’t post even when I go out for a fab meal!). I’m saving up for a manual digital camera!
The only photography course I ever took was way back in high school. I really love photography though — when I see something I start thinking of how I can make it look cool in a picture
3) Why are you so awesome?
Okay fine… I might have made that one up 😉
Anyway, I hope that was helpful, and let me know if you have any other questions!
Stay tuned for some pretty pictures from my snowy 5 mile run this morning
