How to Take Great Photos for a Website

Most websites nowadays are definitely more visually-oriented – with high quality and beautiful-looking photos often found in their design. Of course if you aren’t a photographer and have little experience in taking photos that can be a bit daunting, but the good news is it really doesn’t take much to snap great photos for a website.


In fact, these 3 tips should help you out quite a bit:


  • Don’t worry too much about the camera you’re using

Beginners often worry if the camera they’re using is ‘good enough’. Frankly any rudimentary digital camera is more than good enough to take some great photos – and you can even get by just using the camera on most smartphones.


  • Keep the camera steady

If there is one skill that is going to help you take far better photos it is the ability to keep the camera steady while you shoot. Try holding it with both hands and with your elbows locked in place – or use a stand or camera holder if you still have difficulty.


  • Observe the lighting

Lighting is often going to make or break your photos, and you need to make sure the subject you’re taking is clearly lit. Also you should pay attention where the source of the lighting is, and ideally have it placed behind you.
