10 Handy Photography Tips, Tricks & Tutorials

I don't know about y'all, but when I read blogs, one critical thing that'll keep me coming back for more is good photos. Sure, good writing is important too, but if there are great photos, I'm much more likely to closely follow or subscribe to a blog.

Since I am *ahem* a blogger myself, I'm always looking for ways to improve my photography skills. I figure if I appreciate good blog photos, YOU probably also come to a blog looking for good photos. I'm not a pro by any means, but I have learned quite a bit over the past few years, which has made a big difference in my photography. I'm guessing there are at least a few of you out there who have an interest in photography as well, and maybe you're a blogger looking to improve, or maybe you're a mom who'd like to take better photos of her children, or maybe you're intimidated by some of the technical terms and so you find it hard to learn from "real" photography books.

Well that's about to change, because I've pulled together 10 super handy photography tips and tricks from some really great blogs. They've done all the hard work of breaking down the technical stuff into easy to understand, bite size pieces. There are some more "advanced" techniques in this round-up, but don't let that scare you! There's something for everyone including:
  • Sharpening your basic skills
  • Shooting food or small DIY projects/crafts
  • Using window light to your advantage
  • Using artificial (but natural-looking) lights when you don't have natural light
And one more thing - all of these tutorials and tips are written with the DSLR user in mind. If you need some help knowing what equipment to buy, you can check out what's in my camera bag.

So here's the list. If you'd like to pin the composite image of all the tips so you can reference it later, just hover over it and click the P button that appears :).
