Have you noticed how the popularity of selfies has exploded all over Twitter, blogs and showbiz websites?  Celeb selfies are particularly amusing and literally everyone is at it.  From those ubiquitous queens of pop Katy Perry and Rihanna via Victoria Beckham and her ilk through to the very cool Zooey Deschanel and Lena Dunham, the celeb selfie is the new black. Have you been trying and failing to take a good selfie yourself?  OK, well here are some top tips from London’s only online dating photographer.  Read this and get your camera ready.
Are you feeling good?  Sassy?  On top of the world?  Make up on?  Fave outfit ready to go?  Only pick up your camera when you are feeling at your most confident and bold.  Not quite feeling it yet?  Put on your favourite song, put on your highest stilettos or do whatever it takes to get you in the right mood.
Keep very still, especially your hand holding the camera.  Any movement from you or the camera will cause blur. Make sure the flash is turned off – there’s nothing pretty about flash bouncing off the mirror in your photo.  It’s distracting and horrible to look at. Saskia Nelson is the talent behind Saturday Night’s Alright, London’s original online dating portrait photography business and is passionate about helping London's fab single people to shine online. I’ve seen accounts that were really good at promoting** themselves and those Instagrammers tend to succeeded sooner or later. The easiest way to get your composition right is to place your subject right in the centre of the photo. I suggest sticking to one filter on your Instagram feed, it’s the easiest way to get some consistency in your style (more about here) and make your Instagram stand out from the crowd.

In preparation for my up coming Europe trip, today I set out to get my passport photos done. Wear neutral make up: Whether your photo is in color or black and white, colorful makeup can often look garish and unflattering.
Keep it professional: Remember that you might use the passport photo for many different purposes, such as job applications or official documents, so make sure you dress accordingly. While they accept both colour and black and white for Canadian passports – I will 100% always recommend colour.
As you mentioned the blotting powder is great, but also stay away from super shiny lip gloss, it creates a white flash back that can cause your picture to be rejected. If you have hair that very easily falls in your eyes, make sure you can style it a way that day that it doesn’t, that is instant rejection. And finally – practise before if you are the type who particularly cares what your passport looks like. I hate my passport photo and wish I had these tips before I was stuck with my latest photo for 5 years. Selfies are a very good way to enjoy the moment with that best friend you like to be crazy with. The moment you click a picture with the cover off, you will be amazed at the clarity of the picture.
There is always a great opportunity to get a good shot, irrespective of whether the photo is posed or if it’s a spontaneous moment.  Anticipation is something many photographers draw on by getting ready to photograph.
There are some really simple editing options that can improve your photo and make it more attractive.
Perhaps from everything I’ve shared today, this is the starting point and the most important point.
Utterly stunning, adore all the tips and it really does shock me when Peter takes incredible pictures on his phone but with the right light, anything is possible. I have resorted to my cell phone for photos just recently when my pocket cannon’s shutter no longer opened. Keep in touch with Crayon Freckles on Facebook to get daily post previews and hear about other great activities! If your subject is smaller than a car, take a step or two closer before taking the picture and zoom in on your subject. Instead of shooting the object straight on, try  looking down to the object, or crouching and looking up.
What’s great about Instagram is you can shoot with the in app camera with the grid on or off. If you’re using your phone camera, and not the Instagram app camera, remember when framing your shot that it’s a square. You can see all the area cropped out of the photo in white, and my posted Instagram photo in color.
Formally called Statigram,  Iconosquare is a website that gives you the streamlined ability to search Instagram hashtags, groups, and people you may be interested in on your laptop or home computer. When I first started blogging, I carried around my phone and took AWFUL pictures of my food.


As I started reading more and more blogs and hanging out with more bloggers, I stepped up my game a bit and usually carried around a point-and-shoot, which I used every single day and took slightly more clear, if still not great pictures. Eventually, I noticed lots of my blogger friends were using D-SLRs, and I decided to dust mine off.
I took a photography class with Ashley before she went and deserted me for the other side of the pond.
They say that the best camera you have is the one that you have with you, and I obviously always have my iPhone on me. For New Yorkers, I will give you the quick review before sharing the tips I learned: not worth it. She specialises in creating gorgeous photos for her clients to help them build awesome online dating profiles that help tell the story of who they really are. Also, I’ve seen many accounts with absolutely fantastic photos that do really well too. One beautiful object, like a flower, nail polish or a cake on a plain background will get more attention then a complex, busy photo. I’m definitely trying to increase my followers, and love to discover new beautiful feeds. Fed up with always being ashamed of my photo ID’s, today I was determined to take a photo that was a respectable representation of myself! Get a hair cut beforehand if you need to, and don’t forget to tweeze those brows too. This is something I can definitely weigh in on, since my day job involves taking passport photos! It gives a depth to the face that is so much more flattering, and again passport Canada seems to accept them way easier. Also – no visible hair clips or headbands are accepted (unless it is a scarf for religious reasons. Don’t wait until you get there and then try and make the photographer take 10 shots until you get one you like. I am getting a passport soon… I am sure mine would have been horriable without these tips!
I actually have a fabulous passport photo somehow so I use that thing as id instead of my god awful license lol….
I wish I went through some efforts to take a better passport photo, but it was after a very long and stressful day. My biggest concern would be to ensure that my passport looks like me on an average day, because if I were traveling where I would need to use a Passport, I would want to make sure that the photo looked similar to me. I quite like my passport photo, it’s in black and white and everyone looks good in black and white I think!
I will definitely use these tips next time I need my passport photo taken cause they always look terrible. I heard recently that someone had a faint smile in their passport and they were not allowed to get into another country. The one to dress professional is great, because you’re right we do use it for more than just travel.
I don’t have a passport yet but these tips will definitely come in handy when I go to get one.

One amazing perk about using your phone is when you see great light, it only takes a second to grab it and snap a good image. This may not be true in all shots, as everyone has their own personal interpretation of art, but it’s a good rule to put into practice.


I like using it to find new people, comment on photos (much easier then texting on a phone) and checking my statistics. Also, I now run my work Instagram, and, well, I have some serious competition and inspiration re:photography. I did learn some good tips at the end, but I also sat through a lot of very general how to use my iPhone camera, how to use the Photo Stream (which I don’t really care about) and that you should print out more of your photos to make them tangible.
Turn on the gridlines (Settings > Camera), and use the rule of thirds for more visually interesting photos.

Bring your picture to life  by simply moving your subject away from the middle of your picture. For many cameras, the maximum flash range is less than fifteen feet, about five steps away.

If you’ve been reading since the beginning, thank you and GOD BLESS for nearly five years of putting up with me. I’d seen Juliette taking a similar class recently, and though it sounded like a great idea. The little square comes up, and you can move it to where you’d like it to expose for, and it will do so. Or, for instance, like the photo above, place your subject diagonally with the main focus in the top right corner. To find that perfect composition, use the lines on the screen when you open up the camera. My best tip for getting the lighting right in a photo is playing around with focus on your camera. Think for a minute what this photo is about, what message you’d like it to carry and then express it all in one sentence. So to share the love, I’ve put together a list of tips and tricks that help me get camera ready! I’ve been using this for a few weeks and am trying to learn the ins and outs, but even on a basic level, it does some decent editing. In many situations, it can make your photos look better, but it can also make them appear a bit flatter. As a passport photographer, we actually have very strict guidelines we legally and professionally have to follow, so we aren’t there to take a glamour shot of you.
Having something centered in a photo may feel more natural when shooting, but in reality it’s not balanced. For instance, when taking a flatlay photo, like above, I always tap on the darkest object (i.e.
