Aside from good prose and passion for subject matter, I must say that I’m 100% swayed by good photos in blogs. Humans are visual creatures and a good photograph speaks volumes. I may not be interested in the product or brand but a good photograph will draw me in hook line and sinker to read the post, if nothing else. I may never buy it, or even be remotely interested in it, but I’ll read the post – because the photos are gorgeous. I will even subscribe to a blog just because their photos win me over and if they write well, wow! 😀
If you have a beauty blog, or a fashion blog or a lifestyle blog, aside from design and prose, good and interesting photographs are essential. Sometimes, readers aren’t visiting for what you have to say – they are visiting to see what you have to show them. Instead of preaching from my soapbox, I’ve decided to get some insights from other bloggers 🙂
Since I move around the beauty blogging circle more than other niches, I have contacted 4 of my favourite beauty bloggers (who are all top beauty bloggers in their own right! 😀 ) whose blogs showcase beautiful photos, to have them share their tips for taking good photographs, and the equipment they use 🙂
I think you would be quite familiar with them, won’t you? 😉 Their tips are invaluable too.
