How To // Blog Photo's

I was requested to share how I go about taking my blog photos by the lovely Rebeka. I don't own the hyped up snazzy 'blogger camera', I've used two cameras since starting my blog, three counting my iPad. I'm not professional and refuse to read instructions but here's what I do & I hope a few of you do find it useful, I really don't do anything complicated.
What camera do I use?
I use the Lumix Panasonic DMC FZ45 currently, I'll eventually upgrade again.....or add snazzy camera owner to the BF requirements. My old pink Fujifilm J30 is now retired to the  cable drawer until I sell it, it's practically brand new. I've been using my Lumix camera for most of the year, I'd recommend it. Occasionally I use my iPad camera, it's a lot better than I thought. I wouldn't use it all the time, it's not the best especially as winters coming. I'm already hating the dull, grey days for blog photos.
Where do I take my photos?
If you followed me from the start I've changed where and what I've taken my photo's on. I currently take them on my dressing table, in my make shift blog studio....white card. These pop up tents seem a bit ridiculous to me and take the fun out of blogging. I get a fair amount of natural light in my room but occasionally I move into the next bedroom, found in hauls, instagram photo's & eventually youtube videos.
How do I resize my photos?
Resizing is the easiest thing to do, I'll usually resize by simply using the preview on my mac or macbook. Other times I'll just upload to picmonkey and do all my extras along with resizing. I don't feel like I need photoshop, I don't need to edit professionally nor will I redesign my blog, I'll pay someone when I find the right person! 
How do I make my photo's pretty?
I use a combination of Picmonkey & apps on my iPad. 
If I did miss anything, let me know in the comments and I'll reply!

  4. The camera looks pretty good! I am all hyped up over DSLRs because I'm not a pro it really might not be practical to spend so much money on that camera, but I do love camera posts! :) thank you for this xxx
