Natural lighting always make any pictures look a thousand times better that’s the reason why all the bloggers always say to take pictures in the natural daylight. During the wintertime, you don’t get as much natural daylight so it might be extremely hard to take pictures so whenever it’s sunny, go and take pictures!

La lumière naturelle donne toujours à chaque image un aspect mille fois meilleur. C’est la raison pour laquelle tous les blogueurs disent toujours de prendre des photos à la lumière du jour. En hiver, la lumière du jour est moins ensoleillée, il est donc extrêmement difficile de prendre des photos alors quand il fait beau, allez prendre des photos!

Another tip to take bright pictures is with the help of apps. If you can’t find natural daylight then you can edit the brightness and contrast levels of the pictures and adjust the pictures up to your preference.

You can also achieve this by using Photoshop or Lightroom (desktop versions) which is much more advanced in my opinion. You can adjust the colour levels and edit other settings as well.

Vous pouvez également y parvenir en utilisant Photoshop ou Lightroom (versions de bureau), ce qui est beaucoup plus avancé à mon avis. Vous pouvez régler les niveaux de couleur et modifier d’autres paramètres.

In addition, you can buy extra equipment such as a softbox which will allow you to take pictures whenever you want! I know not every blogger can afford it and it might not be practical to store it in your room but if blogging is your part/full-time job then it’s a good investment.

De plus, vous pouvez acheter du matériel supplémentaire, tel que la boîte à lumière, qui vous permettra de prendre des photos à tout moment! Je sais que tous les blogueurs ne peuvent pas se le permettre et qu’il n’est peut-être pas pratique de le ranger dans votre chambre, mais si bloguer est votre travail à temps partiel/à temps plein, c’est un bon investissement.

When taking pictures during the winter, take into consideration the background you’re using for your flatlays or outfit pictures. They might make your picture brighter or duller so you have to balance everything out in order to create the perfect shot.

  1. That’s a very useful post!! I usually don’t like to fix the brightness in post-editing because it won’t change the quality of the photo. For great picture quality, I’d rather either invest in a good lighting equipment or use day light, which is what I am doing right now! And playing with the background is a great idea too!!

  2. See this is the sort of post I didn’t know I needed to read, but GOSH this was actually SO helpful. It’s really difficult to shoot in natural light when the sun’s only shining from 9am-4pm in Denmark. I always really enjoy reading your posts! ❤ xx

    1. Aw thank you so much Karen! ❤️ it’s the same problem in the UK as well, I haven’t taken any pictures in 3 weeks, the weather is awful xx

  3. When I saw the title, I was like Yay!! It’s such a struggle, isn’t it?! I tend to use a window sill as I find as long as the sky is white it’s not too bad. I have a ring light but if there’s not much natural light to go with it I give that Tungsten effect which I don’t like. The struggle continues as the days get shorter! Great tips as always!

  4. I didn’t even thinking of using a white (or lighter) background – but duh! Of course that makes sense! I appreciate you sharing this 🙂

  5. Bonnes astuces, merci 😉
    Je vois que Sadje t’a nominée pour le Sunshine Blogger Award, eh bien figure-toi que moi aussi, mais en français haha
    J’aimerais beaucoup te voir y participer

  6. Nice tips. An affordable and effective way to take photos for your blog is to use window light. Put your subject close to the window and position it with light and shadow falling as you like. You can use a white board or white paper on the other side of the subject from the window to fill in the shadows and make brighter.

    1. So glad to hear that! Oh it’s the same thing here as well but it’s sunny in the UK right now, hopefully it stays that way 🤞🏼
