One of my favorite clients and sister-in-laws is Randi Garrett of Randi Garrett Design.  She is beautiful.  She is talented.  And she sure knows how to take an amazing picture.  Here are my 5 tips to better pictures for your blog .

1.Good lighting.  Almost all good pictures start with good lighting.  Find a place where you know that the light is good and know when it is good.  This is taken in a small courtyard where the light is nice and even.

2.  Be timely.  We took these pictures for a 4th of July post for Randi.  Being aware of holidays and events is one really great way for you to get noticed by your followers and can help you get new followers.

3.  Get the details.  Go ahead and get close up.  This is also great for product shots.  Use these pictures on your Instagram and tag the business.  You just might get featured and get some free advertising.  Not too shabby.

4.  Change the expression. Notice the above and the below picture are practically the same pose just a different facial expression or different place she is looking.  This can change everything about your shot.  Look up, look down, look at the camera, look past the camera.  Smile, half smile, laugh, go serious.

5.  Have fun.  Seriously.  Let go a little.  Give yourself permission to be yourself.  Your audience will love you for it.  Randi going all legs out only happened for a moment, but it was in that moment that she showed a little personality and a whole lot of fun.  And guess what, when she posted on her Instagram account, her followers loved her for it.  You can show your personality by a fun facial expression, wearing fun shoes or just giving your audience a glimpse into your real, crazy, imperfect life.

Well hopefully you loved these pictures and these tips.  I’d love to see your pictures.  Tag me on Instagram @iammichellegifford.
