So so helpful Violet!
I have an important photo to take tomorrow and I'll definitely be taking these rules into consideration!

Bookmarked!!!! I loosely follow these guidelines already, but I always seem to forget 1 or 2 things that will help my photos tremendously....most notably preparing the backdrop....then I waste a bunch of time having to shoot something over again. This will be my official checklist to make sure I'm getting the most out of my shots! Thanks Violet!

Thank you for all the tips, Violet. I myself am clueless when it comes to photography. As is my hubby who takes my photos, so together we're a lost cause. :) But the whole time of day to take pictures and standing against the sun tips helped me the most! Thank you for doing this post.

Crissy

eeeee puppy looks so fluffy and shiny with direct flash..wants ;.;


I think I'm going to have a photo shoot this weekend so going to try to follow the rule of thirds!

This is great advice, I've been guilty of the harsh sunlight thing. I think I heard somewhere that the sun is my friend, but no one told me how much better the shade is.

Thanks for this,

Love from Jo'burg

BlythePonytailParades

Oh thank you Felicity! That's so sweet :)

BlythePonytailParades

It sounds right to use the "sun" as flash, but it ends up making people's faces look so much harsher. Shade is always more flattering :D

BlythePonytailParades

No problem! Thank you!

I thought the girl looked a lot more pretty with the looking down portrait. Depending on the time of day. The sun will have less or more reds and oranges. The less reds and oranges the more blue your going to see. This means that like your saying the time of day is very important when taking advantage of natural light. I still think the best photos can be taken with natural light.
