Photograph ideas you need for your blog

So you have finally finished writing that amazing piece, you have spent hours on this, and its all ready to go. well, the words are ready, but what about the photos? What are you using to catch the attention of your readers? Remember as bloggers we are all still learning all the time.

Your media is as important as your words!

We all know that your writing content is the most important, however, As much as your writing is so important when it comes to posting your blog post, photographs are just as important. Especially images that are relevant to the subject you are talking about. I mean would you really have photos of food when your talking of fashion? or anything else that’s a complete opposite to what your writing about.

Planning is important

What should I be using to take my Photograph?

Firstly if you are under the impression that you need a fancy camera before you are able to take a decent photo, you are literally incredibly wrong. I mean in this day and age all you need is your phone or your tablet. Your smart device is the perfect tool you can use, to be able to take pictures on. Let us face it. who doesn’t have their phone pretty much 24 hours of the day?

Personally, I own both a DSLR and an iPhone, I am happy to admit that I use both.

If you are lucky enough to own a DSLR camera (because I know they can be really expensive to get your hands on). You may prefer the photograph this takes. One of the reasons I use both, however, is it is not always practical to carry a bulky camera 24/7. However, if I’m staging my own photographs at home. I’ll be on my Nikon.


So what can I use as a prop?

There are so many things that you can use as props, Below is a list of just some ideas:

Gift wrap
Washi tape
Foam Shapes
Fairy lights
Phone case

Did I mention there is a lot of things that you can use to set up photos for your blog? Hopefully, this list will be able to inspire you to think of more ideas!

There are always more ways to find the perfect Photograph:

Don’t forget not all blog media needs to be staged either. I’m a constant photo taker. I can’t help it. It’s like taking photos is just in my blood.

My favourite pots have pens in them.

I’ve started learning how to create my own blog images as much as I can. But don’t forget there are still so many amazing websites that you can find free stock photographs from, and you won’t have to worry about copyright issues with these.

All you need to do, a simple google search for free stock images and tons of useful sites come up. Plus if you are using canava, their image library is huge! a lot of phone editing apps will have the same things.

I would love to hear, what your photo process is, and how you set up your photos. If you found this post helpful check our 7 must-have apps for bloggers, here.

    Great post! I just started my blog and one of the things I’m a little nervous about is capturing good blog photos. I am a nature photographer at heart and I’ve never really experimented with any other type of photography so this will certainly be an adventure. Thanks for the tips 🙂

      Thank you, Bailey, Nature photography is so much fun! I enjoy this myself. Taking blog photos can be so much fun, just looking at things slightly different than normal!
      Enjoy your journey!
