We love to take coffee pictures on vacation, at coffee shops, or while working. I mean, taking photos is like collecting memories, and who doesn’t like to look back on to remember a moment or share it with your kids later on?!
As today, August 19th, is World Photography Day, which aims to inspire photographers across the planet to share a single photo with a simple purpose: to share their world with the world, we decided to partner with Savorita fan and photographer, Matthew Khaddor, to share the 3 most important tips to take the best pic ever!
So no more boring photos! Take better coffee, food, and selfie shots with these 3 tips, and tag us on Instagram @savoristacoffee so we can reshare it -- we’ll love to see you there!
The biggest things you want to remember when you take your selfie coffee photos are 3 things:
Focus, Lighting, and Composition!
1- Focus: The focus is what your camera is focused on and you want the viewer's eye to spot first. If there are multiple things in the photo, make sure the thing you want to highlight is what the camera is focused on so it really pops.
2- Lighting: The lighting is the foundation of a great photo. The brighter the area, the better for clarity! The best time to take pictures is during the day, the natural light is perfect for making your pictures look better. For example, look for a window and take a picture facing the window, you want the light source to be in front of you, not behind you.
3- Composition: Composition means how your photo is organized. The more unique the perspective, the cooler the shot you're going to get! The rule of thirds is a very popular and simple composition guideline to follow. The rule of thirds states that a photo is most appealing when the focus point of the photo is placed along lines which divide the image into thirds, both horizontally and vertically. Placing your subject in the left or right third of an image, or in the center while leaving the other two thirds more open, is an easy way to start applying the rule of thirds to your snapshots.
📸 Taking selfies with your Savorista coffee is always a great idea! Other cool ideas are cheering with a friend and their coffee or taking a photo with your first sip of the day.
Most important extra tip: HAVE FUN!
We can’t wait to see the amazing picture you will take.
Happy World Photography Day!
