Pictures are the new currency of the internet. Whether you measure your success in Likes, Pins or comments, a great photo gets attention, gets shared and brings audiences to you. For bloggers, especially if you’re blogging about beauty, fashion or lifestyle, photography may be even more important than your words.

camera for fast, convenient photos on-the-go and a mirrorless or DSLR camera for when you’re taking more serious or planned photos. Bloggers favour the Olympus Pen EPL7, but I personally have a Canon EOS M10 as my mirrorless camera and a Canon EOS 6D as my DSLR for professional shoots.
- The aperture size (or iris for those of a video background) is the main hole that allows light into the camera; the wider the aperture, the more light comes in and, for interesting effects, the shorter the depth of field
- The ISO determines how sensitive to light the sensor is and it’s where you risk letting digital noise into your image; a low ISO means less sensitivity and less noise, a high ISO can help you get shots in darker environments but you’ll start seeing that noise or grainy look in your pics.

This photo was taken with external light so they’ve taken this photo using a small aperture which has achieved long depth of field. You can see the day is overcast, so maybe the light wasn’t the best but, as they’re shooting a static subject, they can compensate by using a slower shutter speed to let in more light or by adjusting the ISO.
