Instagram For Your Business by Kimberly Genevieve
Food photography has never been more present in the world of photography as it is today. Especially in a world where social media exists, we are bombarded with what people are eating on Facebook, Instagram, and blogs. What really differentiates a good food photo from a bad food photo is presentation, lighting, and styling. As a photographer, I am always looking for ways to make a boring photo POP! I recently had to photograph donuts for a client and I simply could not bare to place the donuts on a regular table - the idea of photographing donuts up against a pink surface screamed at me!

Photographing Interiors by Kimberly Genevieve
I hope you all had time to check out my post from last week on photographing with natural light. This week, I'm sharing some tips for capturing beautiful interiors. I've been fortunate enough to photograph home and office tours for ELLE Decor and RUE Magazine since early August. This experience has definitely helped me grow as a lifestyle and interior photographer. Below are some of my personal techniques for capturing gorgeous spaces. First things first, it's so important to see the space you're hired to photograph. I always try to do a walkthrough or at least see photos of the space to get an idea of the lighting. Before you begin shooting your space, always make sure that all the lights are turned off-you want to avoid those warm yellow bulbs as much as possible. I also recommend photographing RAW because it will give you the most control when you're ready to edit the final images.

Shooting with Natural Light by Kimberly Genevieve
I've been obsessed with natural light since day one. Early on in my photography career, I could barely afford to buy the few lenses that I really wanted, let alone all the lighting equipment I so wanted to play with. I taught myself how to work with the equipment that I had and truly perfected my skills with natural light.

Understanding how natural light works has truly contributed to my success as a working photographer in Los Angeles. I don't think you can really call yourself a photographer without understanding how natural light works. I often find myself in a situation where using strobes or a flash simply isn't possible, and I have to rely on my knowledge of natural light to pull the photo together. Every photographer should really take the time to understand how to photograph in natural light during the early morning, middle of the day and during the golden hour. I frequently receive inquiries from new clients based on the lighting in my photographs and how natural I make the subject look, especially when photographing lifestyle images for a company. It can take time to really perfect your images with natural light, but with lots of practice and with a simple understanding of where the light should be while you're photographing your subject, you'll notice how efficient it is to photograph naturally.
