How to get the best personal branding photos (YOURSELF)

I know that getting the photos you need for your content can be tricky, so here are my top 3 tips for taking better selfies

Tip #1 Lighting is literally EVERYTHING when it comes to taking nice photos and golden hour is going to be your new best friend!

For those that do not know, golden hour, simply put is the first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset.

At these times of day, the angle of the sun hits about 6 degrees and intermingles with our atmosphere. The water and dust just above the horizon line soften and scatter the blue and violet rays. This scattering creates a warm and visually dimensional glow.

So if you are a morning person (not me ) then head out for the hour before sunrise and if you are a night owl like me, then your sunset hour is the time you shoot!

Tip #2 Now I appreciate that sometimes you just wanna grab a few piccies of you doing whatever your thing is and whatever time of day that happens to be and that's cool too! But you want to make the best of what you got right. So what do you do when the sun is at its highest and you want your skin to look its finest! lol

You look for open shade! Open shade is created on the sides of buildings, objects, and trees. Open shade helps to reduce the harsh shadows and it's a nice soft diffused light that is easy to work with and will make you look fab!

Tip#3 Have fun, your personal branding photos should show YOU as a person, if you love to pratt about (like me) then make sure you have some photos of you doing your thing!

I hope this helps some of you and if you got any questions pop them in the comments and I will do my best to help
