I enjoy taking photos immensely - so much so that I can no longer bake a cake and just eat it like a normal person. No...I have to style it, dress it and then photograph it. However, I'll be the first to admit that I am by no means a professional photographer and that in fact, all my photos are taken on the iphone and edited with Snapseed.
A few of you have very kindly complimented me on my photos and have even asked that I share my technique. I've always been reluctant to do so because I'm embarrassed by my "technique" - if you can even call it that. And frankly I'm just plain worried that you'll laugh at me when I reveal my "technique". Today, however I've decided to take that risk and share with you a little trick I often use when taking photos - just don't laugh!
