Photography Tips

There’s no great blog without images right? I have to agree with that. Therefore you will need to take some great pictures. Not perfect, because I definitely cannot do that and I don’t have all the equipment like a pro. Just good enough so that your readers can tell what it is you are referring to.

As a mom, I decided to get a DSLR camera, just the lowest grade one, so that I can take decent pictures of my boys. My main issue was being able to capture them in action with my digital camera because the shutter speed wasn’t fast enough.

I’ve taken time to find some articles on tips to take better pictures. Just the basic things that I needed to know to take decent pictures. With that “class” down, I have seldomly fall upon a few tips/articles that help out with self-portraits. Why? Because as most of us know, you don’t always have a photographer handy to take pictures of you. For me, sometimes it would by my 5 year old son, but majority of the time, it’s the tripod and a self timer.

I am in ongoing battle with self-portraits because I just still don’t know how to really do… great, for lack of a better word.

Below are a few articles that I have found to help out.
