Capture the moment…

Photos, photos, photos. We are surrounded by them everyday, but how often do we stop and appreciate the image? 

From Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, and Youtube, we are constantly surrounded by images. Some are breath  taking, some taken by beginners (which is how you have to start), others  by designers and camera brands (some of the best out there), others by celebrities, fellow bloggers, moms, teens, dads, and the list goes on…

Today’s post is all about how you can get the best out of your camera, iphone, video recorder, and so on. How to capture the best angles, day and night time photography and how to get your pics seen.

I hope you like it!

I personally have a soft spot for Polaroid cameras, which became a big trend last Summer, because they give off a vintage vibe, you get to see the photo instantly, and are able to hold it in your hand with in seconds. I own a vintage yellow one and am constantly snapping shots with it.

It’s easy to use, cool, on trend, vintage, and they come in a range of colours and different styles you can choose from.

The number one brand I can recommend is the Instax Mini by Fujifilm. For camera specifications and features check out their website below:
