In my previous blog post, I shared 5 tips that you can start implementing for you and your business to have images that are more consistent. Click here to read my previous 5 tips.
So here are 5 more tips for you.
Tip 1: Photograph in consistent lighting – Whether using natural light (sunlight) or artificial light (indoor light or flash), photograph your subject in consistent lighting will make editing easier and your images will be more consistent.
Tip 2: Use selective focus mode – If your phone camera has selective focus mode option, use it to photograph your subject to emphasize it. This will bring the attention to what you want to show your audience.
Tip 3: Photograph in landscape orientation – Most website and social media use images in landscape orientation (horizontally) so photograph that way. You can always crop the image to portrait orientation (vertically).
Tip 4: Remove clutter – This can mean a busy background or messy room that will take away the focus away from your subject, it is best to remove it or use a plain color background when you photograph. Using portrait mode would help bring the focus back to your subject. For example, if you are photographing a product, use a large sheet of white paper as a background.
Tip 5: Use the same editing tool or filters – If you edit your images before you share on your website or social media, make sure you use the same editing tool or filters so your images look consistent. For example, if you use Instagram filter, use the same one consistently when posting. A free editing tool that I use on my phone all the time is Adobe Photoshop Express. Here is a link for the free photo editing software for your computer and this one is for your phone.
