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 :)
