I need to take more photos. Not perfect, staged, awesome, arty photos… just more photos, of the imperfect, every day kind. If you’re like me here are some lovely links to some photography tips, tricks and inspiration.
This 30 Day photography challenge from Superrrr Baaarbs has been around the web a lot lately, but it is a fab way to kick you in the bum and remind you to take more photos.
These low light photography tips from Picture Correct are fabulous.
If you have to use your flash bouncing it off something to diffuse the light is the best way to do it. This tutorial shoes you how to make a quick and effective flash diffuser using a business card, awesome!
Don’t forget to include yourself in the photos! The lovely Lisa has a great tutorial for taking self portraits at her blog Life as We Know It.
This image from one of the latest MILK books is awesome! I’ve read that it was done by having the camera around your neck and using the self timer as you swing the child around. Cool!
“Remember it doesn’t have to be the perfect lighting or a perfectly set up shoot…playing in the playroom, reading books on their beds, bubbling up in the bath, helping with chores….it doesn’t matter just CAPTURE THEM BEING THEM, you won’t regret it!”
Oh and I also wrote a post for the new The Mummble blog about using your own photos in your blog posts.
