    No time for photography? Here’s the fix!

    No time for photography? Here’s the fix!

    How to find more time in your day for learning photographyWhenever I ask people about what the number one thing is that is holding them back from learning photography, one of the most common answers I get is not having enough time! 
    I can definitely relate to that - most of us are struggling, trying to juggle several plates at the same time, so learning photography can get shunted down to the bottom of the pile. 
    Although I can’t help you add more hours to your day, I can try to help you work smarter in the hours that you DO have, and help you find time in your day for photography - and that’s what we are going to dive into in this week’s podcast! 
    Tune into this episode to discover: 
    Why scrabbling around trying to learn photography via disconnected tutorials is wasting your time
    Why being more structured in how you approach learning photography will ultimately save you so much time
    How to map out your own learning curriculum (or download my free blueprint if you are a beginner) 
    How to find time in your day for photography, or factor it into your existing schedule!

    5 Must Know Editing Tips to Help You Edit Like A Pro!

    The 5 must-know editing tips to help you edit your photos like a pro! 
     
    If you have been following Live Snap Love for a while, you'll know that I LOVE editing photos. It’s a HUGE part of photography for me, because it's another area where I get to be creative, or get the photo looking exactly the way I want it to look!
    Editing is like the icing on the cake or the seasoning on your food - you might not technically need it, but without it, your photos can be a little bland and uninteresting.
    But the good news is, even a little bit of editing with some basic tools can have a huge impact on your photos! 
    So in this week’s podcast episode,  I'm sharing 5 must-know editing tips to help you edit your photos like a pro, so that they look more polished and professional, and help you get a more consistent style for your photos. 
     
    In this episode, you’ll learn: 
    The first thing you’ll need to do in editing, to make sure your photos look beautiful, fresh and natural.
    How to turn your image from so-so to masterpiece by playing with the exposure
    What to do if you want a specific style, like light and airy or dark and moody 
    Why you should avoid using presets to start with and learn how to take the wheel and drive yourself! 
    Where to start when it comes to editing your photos, and a good way to experiment with editing.

    3 tips to help you get better photos when shooting in full sun!

    3 tips to help you get better photos when shooting in full sun!

    How many times have you heard that in order to get the best photos, you should try to shoot in the Golden Hour, in other words, the hour right before sunset or just after sunrise?
    Probably a lot!  However, many times, we simply cannot shoot at that time of day.  Maybe we’re taking our kids to the beach or the park later in the day, or we’re photographing a wedding that is happening in the afternoon, or we’re on holiday and sightseeing during the day, or maybe you’re in business and your clients can’t make the golden hour. 
    The good news is, there is a way to photograph people that allows you to get nice, soft, even light on your subject, even at midday, and is easy enough to use as a beginner! 
    In this episode, I’ll give you a couple of tricks to try for shooting in full sun that will help you get better “people” photos, even in the height of summer.
    Tune into this episode to discover: 
    Why shooting in full sun is generally considered “bad” for traditional portraits / people photos 
    How utilizing shade can help you get softer, more even light 
    Where you can find open or covered shade 
    What to do when there is no shade available 
    Some other ways to play with photography in full sun!

    Ai and Photography: Where Do YOU Draw The Line?

    Ai and Photography: Where Do YOU Draw The Line?

    There has been a lot of chatter recently about the use of AI in photography, especially as Photoshop's AI tools have been growing steadily, and very recently both Lightroom and Lightroom Classic introduced a new generative AI tool inside Lightroom, making it even more accessible to use AI on your images.
    So where do YOU draw the line when it comes to the use of AI in photography? I'm definitely no expert in AI but it did prompt me to think more closely about the use of AI in my own work! 
    From tagging and noise reduction to generative AI tools, together we will explore the ethical considerations and personal boundaries of AI in photography. Whether you're a seasoned photographer or just starting out, this episode will hopefully get you thinking about what is and isn't acceptable in your own photography journey!
    You’ll discover: 
    What AI is in Photography, and how we have maybe been using AI without realizing it!
    Some recent examples of AI photos that made the news (including one that won a photography competition!) 
    What I personally use AI for, and where I draw the line.
    Does it make a difference if you made the changes manually or using AI? 
    The ethical considerations of using AI in photography
