Everyday Life: Go Towards the Light

by Tammy Strobel on August 2, 2012

{Photography helps me see the world differently and enables me to be less sad about my dad’s death. Since I’ve been taking so many photos, I decided to begin a new series on the blog called  “Everyday Life.” The series showcase’s images from my everyday life. In addition, the series fits in perfectly with The August Break. Enjoy!}


Everyday Life Photography Tips

– Try shooting into the light. Sometimes this can create an interesting effect in a photograph.

– Natural lighting is best. However, if you’re shooting inside turn the lights on. Doing this will illuminate your photograph and give you a better quality shot; especially if there is little to no natural light in your home.


I’ve received two commonly asked questions about my photos. Below are the questions and my responses. If you have more inquiries, feel free to leave a comment.

1. What kind of camera do you use? I have two cameras; a Nikon D5000 and my iPhone camera. I bought my Nikon D5000 about four years ago and it rocks. I take pictures with both everyday. I have a kit lens that came with the D5000 but I prefer taking pictures with my 50mm lens. The Olloclip, for the iPhone, is a really cool tool too!

2. What’s your photo taking process? For more on that topic, read this post.
