Natural lighting is gonna be your best friend. I'm telling you! Take photos facing a window. I promise, you will look like a literal angel in your next selfie.
Speaking of angels, know. your. angles! This is crucial to being the photo taking queen! Test taking photos from an upward angle. Try a downward angle. Try every angle, and just see which one suits you the best!
You want your photos to look natural, and polished. Sure, editing is fun, but do not over do it! Editing is like makeup, it's suppose to enhance not overpower.
You want to be the focus! If you don't know where to take photos, take them in front of a blank background. One spot that always comes in clutch is a white garage door.... you're welcome! ;)
Don't be afraid to say "hey, can you take some more?". You need options! Out of every 30 photos you take... there is usually about 4 that make the cut! Let's be real! When it comes to taking pictures, the more the merrier!
One of the struggles of having your photos taken, is having someone to take your photos. You can utilize the self timer for help. Ask your mom to be your photographer for the day. Know somebody who loves to take photos? Ask them if they would want to practice taking photos with you!
There are apps like VSCO, Lightroom, & even Instagram that help with creating a certain look and filter to your photos! Just remember - don't over edit! :)
Follow people on Instagram that inspire you. Even following photographers can give you inspiration as to what kind of photos that interest you! Pinterest is always super fun to utilize when you are looking for inspiration as well. Did you know there's an Izzy Be Pinterest page! ;) We got you!
