How To Take Pro Photos Using The "SlfIE" method

THE S.L.F.I.E. METHOD

Select. Light. Focus. Inspire. Edit.

SELECT

Get in close to frame your subject and avoid distractions in the background.

LIGHT

Use the window as a lamp to shine warm, natural light onto your subject.

FOCUS

Make the eyes of your subject the sharpest part of a portrait photo.

INSPIRE

Capture the moment, the expression, the smile, the personality of your subject.

EDIT

Crop, adjust and retouch your photograph in a photo app, then share it with your audience.

Use the Camera You've Got...

A big DSLR camera can be great, but you can also take great photos with a mobile device like a tablet or smartphone. The cool thing about mobile devices is that you can photograph, edit and share your photos with your audience right on the device.
