The best photos’s for a blog are made by yourself
Are you trying to optimize your blog site more and more, do you look closely at SEO, are you busy on Social Media and Pinterest, do you use Plug-ins?? Everything to get more visitors to your site. Then you also want beautiful pictures for a blog. Of course you can use free stock photos like Pixabay on your blog. But it is more fun and personal when you make your own photos’s. Now I don’t always have pictures of myself either. Sometimes I blog about a subject I don’t have or can’t take a good picture of, then I use a stock photo. But I prefer to take the pictures myself, it is more personal and I just like to take pictures. But what do you need to make the best photos on a blog?
Previously you had to have at least an SLR or compact camera, with your cell phone nowadays you can also take very nice pictures for a blog. So you do not need an extra camera besides your phone. But of course you can. It is very personal, what you choose. I myself use a Canon Powershot G7 Mark ii in addition to my mobile phone to take pictures for my blog. I bought this on purpose because at that time I took very little pictures with my mobile and also because this camera is a vlog camera. Because I am increasingly making videos for my YouTube channel, this still comes in handy.
Make your camera your own
Whatever you use for camera to take photos’s for a blog, for each camera counts;’make sure it becomes your own!’Read the instruction manual, look at all the buttons and all the extra’s, see what you can do with it and start experimenting. This allows you to get to know your camera best and you will enjoy it the most.
Also something you can definitely use well as a blogger to take pictures’s, is a tripod. Choose a tripod that is sturdy but lightweight and can be used for an SLR, compact camera or mobile phone. No matter how steady your hand is, a tripod is stable and ensures sharper pictures.
Do you want to review products and make nice pictures of them on your blog, then nice backgrounds are also a plus. Ideal for bloggers are the BloggerBlackDrops of Webshop for bloggers.

Besides a background, light is also important when taking beautiful pictures for a blog. Play with the light, when you take photos. You do not have to buy special studio light, first see what you can do with natural light and artificial light at home. Photography is also discovery and above all practice. The best photos for a blog do not just make suddenly, there you can really practice well for a while. Remember that time.
Look at your laptop or computer what editing software is standard on it. Here you can often use your photo’s already good to bring color, is this with photography did not succeed.
