Sometimes it’s enough to just go out with your camera or phone and just take pictures, other times, you need some essentials. Here are mine:
📷 A practical outfit
Unfortunately this is really impossible in the Winter, as I have to wear my scarf or I’ll freeze. But my scarf can be incredibly annoying and insist on being in the picture.
Gloves are also essential during the Winter or I’ll freeze my fingers off while trying to get that perfect picture
📷 Something to take pictures of
Of course there’s plenty to see and take pictures of when outside, but sometimes you don’t feel like going out, so you need to find something to take pictures of, like a plant or books
Holland’s Next Top Model
Or in my case my best friend, my mom or random passersby. Pro tip: find friends who’d love to model for you
📷 Someone who lends me their arms and holds my pumpkins or other props
Maybe one day we’ll be able to hold props and take the picture ourselves, but sadly today is not that day so we need to borrow people’s arms.
TRIPODS. I JUST REMEMBERED TRIPODS EXIST.
I’m broke though so for now I have to borrow people’s arms
📷 Someone with a good eye for Aesthetics™ for a second opinion
As someone who’s really insecure, I absolutely need someone to take a look at my pictures and tell me whether they’re good or not/still need some editing. Thankfully I have someone like this living at home, namely my mom
📷 Someone to hold an umbrella over me while I take pictures
So basically my mom, because she loves me enough to do that
And that’s it! Or at least that’s all I can think of for now* Are any of these essential for you as well? What are your photography essentials? Let me know in the comments!
* I can always do a part 2 at some point :P
