My Blogging Kit Must-Haves

by - March 15, 2017



Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to share my blogging kit must haves which I have used over the past year. 
As it may help others who are thinking of starting a blog or it could document how technology has changed or I have changed if I repeated this post in a year or longer. 



Lights, Camera Action - 

I use a Samsung NX3000 with 16-50mm Power Zoom lens and Flash (which unfortunately has been discontinued). It's a gorgeous camera and has a old fashioned look as well as it being 20.3 MP.And the boost the flip-out screen for taking selfies and you can move to adjust the angle. I would highly recommend Samsung camera. But I have heard great things about Canon cameras. But at first and sometimes I still use my iPhone 5s as it has a great camera and its easy to transfer.

I don't use anything special for my lighting - just natural light - and if its too dark I adjust it on my iPhone. Usually I add exposure and brightness.

For backgrounds - I either use plain A3 paper from the local craft shop or I found this marble print try at TK Maxx which makes a really nice backdrop. I try to add magazines, flowers or extras but I need to learn and improve how to add them so if you know how please can you comment or message me - as I would love to improve on that part of my photography.


Writing The Posts -

I write my blogs on my MacBook Air 11 inch - which is amazing as its so compact and moveable. I would highly recommend this laptop and I use Google Blogger which I find really easy to use.

Scheduling Aid-

When I'm really organised I write my ideas in a notebook especially for something like Blogmas but usually i either write them in my 'Notes' on my photo. Or most often - I just create drafts with the Titles of my ideas so they are record and later I can just write them.


I know I'm not the the best at blogging photography - but I hope this might help someone.

Hope you like this post.
