Who would have thought!

As a graphic and web design its almost a given that you need to be able to take good pictures for your design content.

We all know that as a graphic/web designer you’ll be expected to take plenty photographs to keep your social media up to date on all the platforms, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc. But because these types of photographs tend to have a certain kind of quality and look to them it can then lead to taking photographs for your clients.

As a graphic designer I now take a lot of photographs for one of my clients throughout the year. These are Product photographs taken in a small studio at their offices and then out into the Scottish Gardens to to setup for lifestyle shots. This all goes into their yearly Catalogue/Brochure and also used for email campaigns and social media. So taking a few good photographs can lead to much more.

Obviously its easy enough to use your iPhone to take photographs for social media but to produce high quality lifestyle images for a year long campaign, well thats a different beast.

So making the jump to a DSLR camera is not easy but it is definitely worth it. It takes a lot of practise but thats just the norm when learning something new. So its just like learning photoshop/illustrator look how well you know that now.

At the moment I have a Nikon D3200 with a couple of Nikon lenses and they more than do the job well. You can spend as little or as much as you can afford as long as you put the effort in to learn how to use your new tool.

There are plenty of great articles out there for photography so you won’t be stuck.

If theres one person I’de recommend it it would be Karl Taylor. Great videos on all things photography.
