I receive a lot of questions regarding my photos on Instagram and blog, which camera and lens I use and how I go about editing the photos. Therefore, I’ve put together this article for and a little Q&A to shed some light on your questions.
What camera do you use?
I take my Instagram photos with Olympus Pen 7 or iPhone 6. The blog photos are shot with a Canon 5d Mark III, with 55 mm 1.4 F lens.
Which app do you edit your photos in?
Usually, I edit them directly in Instagram depending on the quality of the picture and the enhancements that I want to make. Below is a before and after shot edited in Instagram.
If I’m using a app, its Afterlight. When editing photos, I prefer to use are the ‘Clarify’ function which is looks as a magic stick. This option makes your photo look more HD. In addition, I like to enhance the brightness and contrast. If there is a lot of color and redness in my photo, I remove it by taking down the Saturations. Below is a before and after shot edited in Afterlight.
Finally, I want to emphasize the importance of great lightning and sharp pictures. Dark, blurry pictures is not a option. Hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions.
