How I take my Instagram/Blog Photos! ♡

Good morning my loves, ♡

I hope you are all doing really well. For todays blog post I am going to be telling you about how I take my instagram and blog photos. This will also include a very simple DIY in it aswell so stay reading for that! Hope you all enjoy!

This is also a collab with Kate from her blog Floral Kate. She is so lovely and her blog is fab so you should really go and check her blog out, it is linked below!

So I take all my photos for my blog and instagram on my Canon eos 1200d camera. I really love this camera as it takes such lovely high quality photos and you can do so many different types of photos and it is just amazing and I love my camera so much!

To take my actual photos I find a background that I like in my room and that has good lighting and then I set up some products or just something I want to take a photo of and just take the photo either in manual focus or auto depending on how hard it is to focus on the thing. For this photo I was taking a pic of my I am Malala book which I did a blog post on a few months ago its linked here: Something that has inspired me!

I just then wait for my camera to auto focus on it and take the photo and then I look back and check that it is in focus and that I like it!

I then import them from my SD card to my laptop and upload them onto my blog posts like I’m doing now! I don’t edit them I like to be original and just use my original photos as I like the whole kind of lifestyle vibe on my blog! Sometimes I do enhance them to make them look better but thats it!

Now for the DIY: if you are a blogger or instagrammer like me and struggle with getting different backgrounds for photos then get a pinboard and some self adhesive paper or some wallpaper and stick it on and then you have lots of different backgrounds for your photos! It is that simple and it really effective for different photos!

Here are a few photos I have taken before in the same way that have already appeared on my blog enjoy:

Thank you all for reading! I hope you enjoyed my post! Also make sure to check out Kate’s aswell, have a lovely day!
