5 Tricks to Take Blogging Photographs without a DSLR
But let’s talk about my 5 tricks to take blogging photographs without a big fancy camera.
1. Make Mistakes
First mandatory rule is to properly use your camera. Even a small compact camera has so many options you have no idea of – at least I didn’t! You usually don’t have lenses to switch on your compact camera that would do your job, so everything is up to you. Be smart.
2. Natural Light
Natural light. Yes, everybody keep repeating this and it does help.

3. Flash is not an enemy!
Do use your flash! I don’t get why bloggers hate flash so much but it is very handy sometimes.
|The flash was perfect in this situation because the light was very yellow and very weak – we were in the hall of a big house – so without knowing, the flash worked perfectly!

4. Blurry Images
Even if you can’t change lenses in your small compact cameras (in most of them at least) you still can have that beautiful blurry depth of field bloggers aim to get. I adore it!
5. Use your Automatic Shutter Release
