It's made me think about the way that we edit our photos. I can't even remember the last time that I uploaded a photo to my Instagram account without editing it/adding a filter. Why? To be honest I don't really know! But sometimes it's nice to just take some photos of something beautiful and for that to be enough. No need to edit, filter or change the world around us. Just be content with what we have. Edinburgh is one of my favourite cities in the world. And Edinburgh needs no filter. It's just beautiful! So here are a few of my favourite photos that I've taken of Edinburgh and a few tips for taking photos without filters.
- Use the different times of the day to create interesting lighting for you. The first photo here was taken at dusk and the lighting creates a really interesting photo. I love it so much!
- Sun rises and sunsets also make for beautiful photos. This week we had a particularly gorgeous pink sunset and I saw photos of it everywhere but it was amazing. Sunsets create really dramatic colours that definitely don't need a filter to look breathtaking.
- Take photos of things you wouldn't normally. Everyone always talks about how the Scottish Parliament building is the ugliest building in Edinburgh but I photographed it for this blog post and personally I think it looks great! Who would have thought?
I hope you all agree that Edinburgh is stunning! Have you ever been? If so what did you think of our beautiful city? Also this is my 1000th blog post. How wonderful/terrifying is that?
