Are you a photographer? I like to think I am, but as it turns out I really am not a photographer. After starting my blog and of course, being on Pinterest, I realized I love all the flat lay photos that are out there. While I realized I could scour the internet for free stock photos, I really just wanted my own photos. Now, I don’t own any top of the line cameras that photographers use; I simply have a point and shoot Cannon camera or my cell phone. Off I go, taking pictures and trying to make them look like the ones all over the internet (ha, this is when I realized I am really not a photographer). My pictures looked terrible because I couldn’t get the shadows out of them. Then I found these couple of free to inexpensive tools to help me take better photos and they have helped me out wonderfully.
