TIPS AND TRICKS
I started off with a smartphone and I just used all sorts of ways to shoot.
People often ask me how I take photos of myself (when my Instagram Husband is not around). I am usually by myself when exploring the streets of Sydney.
The tip is to think outside the box. Many times, I had to get creative by using found boxes and bins on the street to take a photo of me with my bike. Well, whatever it takes to get the shot!
The other tip is always shoot in natural lighting. Artificial lighting, most of the time, does not bring out the true colour in the photo (unless, you have Lightroom to edit with).
For those not familiar with Lightroom, it is part of the Adobe Creative Suites family. Similar to photoshop, but it is a program focused on adjusting different colours in the photos.
