Photo editing explained.

Blog photography can be hard, everyones images always look so professional and well edited. I feel since i started my blog i have really improved my photography. I did a photography course at college but by the time i started my blog i’d forgotten most of it, and had to re-learn everything all over again.
I use the apps ColorStory and Facetune 2 to edit my photos and i have recently got photoshop, so my editing will hopefully get better.

 


Your don’t have to use expensive props or photoshop to get good photos for your blog. it’s mostly to do with composition and lighting here the only items i used are things i already had lying about the house. Who knew a plate could be a great prop for your photographs?! All you need to do is get a little creative.

In this photo i simply laid out the items on a plate and used some jewellery for texture in the background added some artificial leaves i had lying about, and focused in on the highlighter.

ColorStory has some great filters – Ice Ice is my favourite filter it sharpens up your image and automatically saturates the colours it’s such a simple yet effect way of editing. If you’d like a bit more control over your editing there are also tools on this app that let you manually edit things like saturation etc.
Facetune 2 is one of the best apps i have found for editing photos, and not just for your blog. I also use this app for editing my Depop images.
There is a whiten tool which is amazing for editing your background, you can take a picture and it might not have the best lighting but with this tool no-one would ever know!
This app also have four categories of free filters, The “no filter” filters are my favourite you can add a subtle change to images without making it look over edited.

Hope you enjoyed my tips. If you have any of your own i’d love to hear them.

Until next time.
