The one thing that I feel would really improve my blog is learning how to take better photographs.
Luckily, I came across this new class at Craftsy called Shoot It! A Product Photography Primer. The description sounded like it was meant for me:
You don’t need expensive software or a super-fancy camera to take great photos – just the knowledge you’ll get in this essential class. If you’ve ever noticed the beautiful photography on someone’s blog, book, published patterns or Etsy page, and wondered, “How do they DO that?” this is the class for you. Quality photos make the difference between marketing that sings and stuff that makes you look like a total amateur.
And this class is on sale right now for 40% off, it includes 10 lessons. Are you in the same boat as me with photography? I feel like I am improving, but my posts still get rejected from Craftgawker with comments like “photo is overexposed” (oh come on, that photo was perfect!) But I am hopeful that after this class I may actually get something approved with that craft website.
I thought it would be fun to have a look back at some pictures that I took when I first started blogging and compare them with some more recent ones. Here are some photos from a year ago when I started blogging (all pictures were taken with the same camera):
And here are some of my more recent pictures – I think I am improving but it’s definitely a work in progress!
