5 Simple Tips for Taking Better Photos {with any camera!} | Photography Tips & Tricks

You don't take a photograph, you make it.
 - Ansel Adams

When it comes to photography, people often think that if they have a great camera, they'll automatically take great photos. And while it's true that a good camera (paired with a good lens) can definitely improve the quality of your image, it won't necessarily make you take great photos. Any photographer worth their salt can take an interesting and engaging photo, with whatever camera they have to hand, whether it be a top-of-the-line pro-level camera, an iPhone camera or a disposable film camera.

If you've found yourself with a lovely new camera, but you're disappointed that your photos still aren't turning out the way you hoped, don't despair. There are a few simple things you can start practising today to help you take better photos in future.

Breakfast at The Grounds {of Alexandria, Sydney, NSW} | Places to See


Last week I got to visit a place I've heard lots about but never seen myself. That place was The Grounds of Alexandria, and I was there with my good bloggy friend Kylie from Kidgredients. Kylie was invited to attend a Mother's Day breakfast being held by the lovely people behind Bonne Maman in Australia.
