  1. I think I'm the only person on this planet who doesn't love the VSCO app but I am obsessed with A Color Story! Their app finally figured out how to get really bright colors without making the photo look grainy and weird.

  2. This is fantastic! While I'm still working on my photography [slash making my husband work on his photography…:P], just taking the plunge on a great camera with a 55mm lens moved mountains for me! Such a difference. And double yes to having blog friends to bounce things off of 🙂

  3. I like VSCO for general instagram editing, but I've still been trying to find an app I heard about (I can't remember the name of it) that allows you to use aperture and ISO while you're taking photos, especially since a DSLR definitely isn't in my budget right now. Great post, thank you for the guide!

  4. I love this! I have joined a few blogging groups and it's helped me a lot in terms of inspiration. It's also nice to see that even when we're all writing blogs were all so different and so is our content. I also love the idea of an idea notebook right now I use notes on my phone and it's getting full. Thanks for the great advice!

  5. Love everything about this. I take most of my pictures with my smart phone (lack of other option) but edit them with Photoshop afterwards. The smartphone cameras really came a long way and as long as there is natural light do surprisingly good.

  6. Honestly, thank you for this post! I am such a newb in the blogging world and I know that there is still plenty of room for improvement. I've been considering upgrading my camera, but had no idea which brand or type to choose. After reading this I am definitely considering the Canon Rebel!

  7. These are such great tips! I take most of my pics with my DSLR camera and some with my phone. It's crazy how some of my photos from my phone end up better…Yes and organization is a must to stay on top of everything and keeping a schedule. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  8. What a fantastic post – thanks for sharing some great tips! I fell away from my blogging journal for a minute, and it was disastrous!

  9. These are such great tips, especially for a beginning blogger. I've been at this for awhile now and use pretty much all of these tools in an assortment of ways. – Katy

  10. You have some great tips! I have been looking into getting a camera to improve my picture game!

  11. I finally got a DSLR a few months ago and my blog has grown since then. I'm hoping as my skills improve, do will my blog following. Beautiful pictures really make a difference!
