How We Take Our Pictures

This is a question many bloggers get asked, and it’s always fun to realize who’s behind the camera for blog pictures.

As you might have guessed, Valentina and I exchange the role of photographer for the blog and social media pictures.

However, there are times -especially when we have to take pictures together – that our mom becomes the photographer (obviously).

Outfit posts are the most fun to take since we have to go out, find a suitable location, and shoot the outfits.

We try to find a background that matches our clothes and style, and there are quite a few places in Panama that you can make work for your blog pictures too!

Moreover, everyone has their style when it comes to pictures and how they want them to look. Personally, we try to make our pictures look bright and colorful.

An editing tool – even if you’re lazy to use it – is actually an important step you don’t want to miss to make your pictures coherent and identifiable. If you have a Mac, I recommend you just use the built-in editor on Preview (the glass prism icon), or use PicMonkey for editing online.

Also, in case you were wondering, the best times in Panama for taking pictures outside are from 9-10:30 a.m. and 3-5:00 p.m.

What you may not know though, is that Valentina and I tend to be very picky about how we want our photos – and by no means are they perfect. We both want to upgrade and buy a better camera (but that thing’s expensive people, especially since we want to get at least a semi-professional one).

The camera we currently have is a Canon digital camera. And even though it’s not new, it still works very well for still life photos of objects or ourselves when there is good lighting. On bad lighting, however, it becomes a hassle.

How is your experience taking photos? What kind of camera do you use?
