When we were coming up with a theme for the week I kept coming back to mobile photography, since I feel horribly inept, like I have been winging it all this time and I so don’t want to be doing that when I am documenting my most precious (and fleeting) memories. I admittedly have trouble creating consistency since those ‘perfect’ to me moments aren’t at a specific time of day and spontaneity is key, so I find myself editing the photos to suit the light, which to be honest isn’t always the best. I figured if I was having trouble then maybe someone else out there reading (or Googling) might benefit from some of these resources. I am hoping to strike a balance between both helping the novice mobile photographer and maybe introducing some ‘aha’ moments for the seasoned one. Since I shoot with an Iphone and have more familiarity with it, some of the tips may sway that way, but a lot of the resources have some great information that will help any mobile photographer, with any device take better mobile photos.
Our first resource and really a biggie if you ask me, was finding ‘Write you on your heart’. It’s a blog by mother and photographer Alicia Brown and it is so well done! You definitely don’t need to be a mom to appreciate her easy + straightforward tips + tutorials. Alicia has a keen eye for spotting and featuring talent, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through her interviews and delighting in the inspiration and information that the guests revealed. Alicia wrote an e-book that I am sure is good if you are using her blog as a gauge, but of course you don’t want to invest in anything just yet, correct? No problem, she also has what she calls ‘The Checklist’ that you can download for free, this single resource if you are a beginner should help you take better photos with your phone pronto!
We look forward to sharing what we have discovered when we went down this rabbit hole, and hopefully we have found the most interesting and easy to execute tidbits for you to master this skill, I know I am personally looking forward to learning more.
P.S. How beautifully quiet are these images by Christine Keegan?
