I hope you all had an amazing weekend.Today on the blog I'll be talking about photography. I'm not an expert but I will share how I take the photos you see on the blog & what I have learnt.

1.Equipment used ; Dslr Camera, Remote Conrol & Tripod.

2.Know your camera ; 'The best camera is the one you have with you'... (you can take photos with any camera) but if  that camera is a digital camera please learn about Aperture, ISO & Shutter Speed.
  • Aperture ; Helps to control what you want to be in focus ,depth of field, especially when you are doing portraits or outfit photos. The lower the number ,measured in f stops, for example f 4.5 the more blurry the background.
  • Shutter Speed; How long your camera shutter stays open to expose the sensor to light.. For example a shutter of 100 means your shutter speed is open to 1/100 of a second. Sutter speed helps to capture motion. So if you use a high shutter speed  motion will be frozen for example when someone is running. I usually use a slower shutter speed (1/100 -1/250) cause I'm usually standing or moving very slowly.
  • ISO; How sensitive your sensor is to light. If you use a higher ISO you might introduce noise to your image & will make your image grainy. I usually set it to 250 -320.
3. When you take your photos ; I usually take in the morning or evening, when sun is not out. At times the only time  I get to shoot is at 1 or 2 pm so I try to find somewhere with a shade to take the photos.

4. Take the photos ; Now everything is set up is time to stand infront of your camera to take the photos. It can be awkward at the beginning but try different poses at differnt angles. I usually adjust my tripod to get different angles. For a detail shot like if I want to show my jewellery I move closer to the camera. I also love a blurry background  so I don't lean on walls/ doors.

I'm also on the hunt to learn new photography techniques. My favourite youtube channels are Mango StreetJessicca Kobeissi & COOPH.
