Blogging Tips: Tools of the Trade – Useful Blogging Equipment

September 10, 2017

It’s time for the next instalment of my Blogging Tips series. This time I’m talking about blogging equipment and the tools I use to do my job.

Really all you need when you start out blogging is something to write your posts on and something to take pictures on. When I started out out I had an old laptop and a camera phone. As time went on I have definitely gained a fair amount more blogging equipment. This post is all about the things I use, you by no means need all of it, these are just a few things that help me create my content.

Camera – My main camera for blogging is a Nikon 5200, this fab SLR is perfect for blog photography. I have a selection of difference lenses that I use for different types of photos.

Camera Remote – A really useful tool, if you’re going to be taking pictures of yourself. A self timer remote, takes the stress out of taking your own pictures.

Notebooks – I am forever buying pretty new notebooks and filling them with to do lists and ideas. Blogging may be an online things, but good stationary is a big part of what we do.

Chargers – When you’re constantly taking pictures or checking social media, a portable charger is essential. I  never go anywhere without one. Check out the Tylt charger for an easy solution.

A big bag – I’d love to travel around with a tiny bag, but as I always have notebooks, cameras and chargers in tow, a big bag is a blogging essential.

Lighting – Good lighting is so important for taking good blog photos, I try to use natural daylight, but I also have a pair or soft box lights to help.

I also have a big selections of backgrounds. My favourite photo prop is definitely a bunch of fresh flowers though.
