Are you afraid to show off your pictures? Improving your photography skills requires time, practice, and dedication. If you want to capture more professional-looking photos, here are some tips to level up your skills and get high-quality images.
Ever since I received my first Kodak Instamatic camera at the age of 9 and then consequently shot off my first reel of black and white film which I processed in our home dark room, I have been hooked on photography.
As a photographer, I understand how Instagram can be extremely attractive. Instagram seems to be a no-brainer. It’s a photo-sharing platform, and it’s also one of the most popular social media platforms. As you’ve learned by reading web marketing blogs online, you should work on your social media presence. And one of the first things you’ve learned is to focus on one or two platforms.

I took this image on my iPhone 7+ at about 8:30am. My son was eating breakfast and I was drinking coffee, staring at the wall behind him. I noticed in moments that the morning sun was low enough to cast a lot of direct light onto our balcony window. In the original image, I wasn’t even sure if I liked it. Typically I use a Nikon for photos, but the moment was right and wouldn’t last long, so I used my phone. Standing as close to the wall as I could manage, I cropped out the recognizable details of our blinds until the focus was the shapes of light and opposing vertical/horizontal momentum of the composition. In the VSCO app, I played with color grading and light values until I found a cool toned, high contrast sweet spot. Film aesthetics are coveted in my favorite personal photos, so I gravitated toward a Kubrick space-inspired tone.
“Bunny” was the brand name of my first camera when I was only ten. It was a cheap fixed lens 120 format camera. After loading a roll of film, twelve shots could be taken before having to reload. There was then quite a wait until the film was developed and printed before the results of the shooting could be seen.
Twitter has historically reduced the quality of photos to save space. Along with many other creators, I was frustrated with the way it handled media uploads. My photos and videos lose so much resolution and quality when I shared them on the social network so that this content could load faster on web and mobile devices. I continued to post, as many others have, on the world's most popular microblogging site, Twitter, mainly to connect with and to learn from my followers.
When given a chance to decide if you will hire a professional photographer for a special event, you need to look for the best. Yes, anyone can take photos, even your 10-year old nephew. The problem is that you won't get the desired results. Photography is an art, talent and skill. It takes dedication and time to get the correct detail. You might even regret it because you didn't capture the heart of the event. These are the reasons why it's always better to hire professional photographers to do the job.
So I’m having a really hard time finding a forum for my work.
