Lets talk about light!
Light is one of the most essential elements in photography. It is the foundation that shapes the mood and atmosphere of a photograph, and it can make or break an image. I personally am found of using natural light as much as possible. Sometimes that is not possible and alternatives must be utilized.
Here are a few reasons why light is so important in photography.
Light creates mood and atmosphere- The way light falls on a subject can create a wide range of moods and atmospheres. Soft, diffused light can create a peaceful and serene atmosphere, while harsh, direct light can create a dramatic and intense atmosphere. Understanding how to use light can help you create the mood and atmosphere you want in your photographs.
Light defines form and shape- Light helps to define the form and shape of a subject by creating highlights and shadows. These highlights and shadows add depth and dimension to an image, and they can help to bring a subject to life.
Light can be used to create contrast- Contrast is the difference in brightness between the lightest and darkest parts of an image. By using light creatively, you can create contrast and drama in your photographs, drawing the viewer's eye to the subject and making the image more striking.
Light brings out color- Light is essential for capturing color in an image. Without light, there would be no color in a photograph. Understanding how light affects color can help you to create more vibrant and dynamic images.
In conclusion, light is one of the most important elements in photography. Understanding how to use light can help you create the mood, atmosphere, and impact you want in your photographs. I highly recommend you try my 360 experiment to get a hands on learning experience of light in your pictures. If you are not sure what that is... message me and Ill send you a video explaining it!
Remember to experiment with different lighting conditions and techniques to improve your skills. And if you find these tips helpful please like/comment/share!
Do you know about Composition?
Composition refers to the way elements in a photo are arranged, and it's crucial to creating visually interesting and pleasing images. Here are some composition tips to help you take better photos with your iPhone. To start off though make sure you have your grid turned on. Do this by going into the phone settings, go to camera, in camera settings turn on grid. Once you have done this, check out these tips to try!
Use the Rule of Thirds: The rule of thirds is a composition technique that involves dividing your frame into thirds, both horizontally and vertically. This creates four points of intersection, which are where you should place the main elements of your photo. This creates a more balanced and visually pleasing composition.
Look for Leading Lines: Leading lines are lines within a photo that lead the viewer's eye through the image. This can be a road, a fence, or any other line that guides the eye through the photo. By including leading lines in your photos, you can create a sense of depth and movement.
Pay attention to Symmetry: Symmetry is when two or more elements in a photo are mirror images of each other. This can create a sense of balance and harmony in a photo. Symmetry can be found in many everyday scenes like reflections, building and nature.
Experiment with different Angles: Shooting from different angles can change the way a photo looks. For example, shooting from a low angle can make a subject look bigger and more powerful, while shooting from a high angle can make a subject look smaller and more vulnerable. Experiment with different angles to see how it changes the look of your photos.
Use the Grid on your iPhone: Many iPhones have a built-in grid that can help you compose your photos using the rule of thirds. To enable the grid, go to Settings > Camera and turn on the Grid option. This will help you to visually see the intersection points of the rule of thirds and use it in a more effective way.
By following these composition tips, you can take better photos with your iPhone. Remember to experiment and have fun!

When it comes to headshots, there are two main types to consider: environmental headshots and traditional headshots. While both types of headshots serve the same purpose of showcasing your professional image, the way they are shot and the information they convey are quite different.
Traditional headshots are typically shot in a studio setting and focus solely on the subject's face and upper body. They are typically shot with a plain background and are meant to convey a sense of professionalism and formality. These type of headshots are perfect for business cards, resumes, social media profiles, and professional websites.
On the other hand, environmental headshots are typically shot in a location that is meaningful to the subject or relevant to their profession. These headshots include the subject in their environment, whether it be at their office, in a park, or on a city street. These type of headshots are meant to convey a sense of personality, context and provide a glimpse of the subject's work environment. These headshots are perfect for websites, social media, and marketing materials.
In summary, traditional headshots are perfect for professional, formal settings and environmental headshots are perfect for showcasing personality, context and work environment. Choose the type of headshot that fits your purpose and showcase your professional image in the best way possible.

When it comes to posing for a photo session, it's easy to feel a little bit nervous or self-conscious. But with a few simple tips and tricks, you can learn to pose like a pro and create stunning images that you'll love. Please know... you are not alone. No one really loves to do pictures... everyone gets anxious and self conscious about it. But going in prepped will help with all of that.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when posing for a photo session is to relax and be yourself. The more natural and comfortable you feel, the better your photos will turn out. Try to forget about the camera and focus on being in the moment.
Another important thing to keep in mind is to vary your poses and try different angles. This can help you create a more dynamic and interesting set of images. For example, you can try standing up straight and looking directly at the camera, or you can lean in or look away for a more candid and relaxed shot.
Also, pay attention to your body positioning. For example, you can use your arms and hands to create different lines and shapes, and you can use your head and eyes to create movement and emotion. Remember the body part closest to the camera will appear the largest.
Lastly, don't be afraid to experiment and try new things. The more you practice, the more comfortable you'll become in front of the camera, and the better your photos will turn out. So take a deep breath, relax and have fun! In short, be yourself, vary your poses, pay attention to your body positioning and have fun.
With these tips, you'll be able to create stunning images that capture your personality and style.
