How to Photograph a Tutorial | Blogging Basics 101
Are you bursting with DIY ideas or recipes you just HAVE to share with your bloggy friends? You should absolutely get on the ball and write a quick tutorial then! I'm going to outline a few simple shots that will give you a basic tutorial below. Enjoy!
I used an open aperture to blur out some of the words and also photographed a tiny section of the page to make sure I wasn't coming anywhere near breaking copyright rules. I just want to give the reader a taste (figuratively) of where this whole thing came from.
Most important: DON'T take a picture of entire recipe or section of text!! ...and DON'T steal a photo off a website!
...which leads me to my last step...
6. Be Honest. If something tastes great, rave about it. If it comes out awful and took forever and was not worth it (see above!) , be honest and tell them!! Alternatively, just don't share the tutorial. If you teach people to make bad things, they won't trust you. So be honest in your critiques and go on and on and on and on about the things that DO work out! If you are interested in things that DID work, check out my FOODIES page in the NEST!
Since many of you have asked for more gear recommendations, here goes!
I started out on a D40 (camera 3), currently shoot with a D7000 (camera 2) and recommend the D3000 (camera 1).
Whatever you do, save your money you had set aside for that Nikon Coolpix or Canon Powershot and buy a used DSLR. Trust me.
...oh and PS -- these tips work JUST as well for a manual camera as they do for digital cameras...
