Watch this video to help create better photos, I am a rookie when it come to photography, but just knowing a few basics and purchasing a better camera has helped me to improve my marketing. There is nothing worse than taking a photo that doesn’t do your work justice. I have realized a great photo is 80% lighting. Here in this post are 2 examples of I photo I took in good lighting the first shot was done with my Cannon T5i. My 7 year old took this photo!! If you know the basics you can set up your own shot. The second photo is a selfie in the same spot then edited with my favorite apps. You can see with good lighting both are a decent shot, the first one it more clear and detailed. Start by practicing with your cell phone. When you feel you have the lighting down then invest in your self! If you like this post Tag me on IG #selfie @dkwstyling

Must have Apps, FramUrlife, Whitagram, PicFx, Square Ready, Camera +, XFlipPhoto, Facetune

    Both pics are just gorg-wah (gorgeous), I mean look at the subject! But, I think the 2nd pic is def superior…see how warm and flesh colored it is, and the whites are whiter? Whereas in the 1st pic, there is an all over blue cast….still a good pic, for sure, but if you could get rid of the blue cast, it would be even better! 🙂

    Hi Danielle!
    I loved this video! Thank you so much for sharing some “behind the camera” tips and tricks. Just wondering, which ring light did you purchase? There are so many out there and I LOVE your new lighting! Can you share the link to it? Thanks again!
