The Best Photography Equipment for Blogging

A picture speaks a 1000 words. Oh yes! With popular social media platforms like Instagram, Pinterest and Bloglovin’, there is a huge focus on creating visual content that is catchy and attractive. Whether you are blogging for hobby or business, creating beautiful visuals will always help your blog stand out amongst the big sea of other blogs.

If you want to step it up a notch by taking your own photos for the blog, here is a list of the photography equipment I use and love. If you fear the expense of photography equipment, then I think your budget will find some awesome suggestions in this post, too — starting at $8! 

1. Camera – Canon EOS 600D – $500

I might have had 1,000 (okay, maybe more like 100) people recommend this camera to me, and after using it for a year now, I can’t recommend it enough myself. It is a fantastic entry level DSLR, perfect for bloggers. It takes excellent quality pictures and gives a great bang for your buck!

2. Lens – Canon 50mm f1.8 – $115

For under $100, this lens does an incredible job at taking sharp, crisp photos for my blog. It has an f-stop of 1.8, meaning it gives a great depth of field (i.e it can add a blurred background effect to your photos, leaving the subject crisp and focused). You can always use the kit lens that comes with your camera, but I think you’ll find that getting a different lens will transform your photos. If you purchase just one lens, let it be this one.

3. Diffuser & Reflector kit – $18

Direct sunlight can cause strong shadows in your photos, and a diffuser can be really helpful to diffuse the harsh sunlight into soft light.

On the other hand, on those dull, cloudy days, a reflector is very useful for adding more light into your blog photos. This $20 reflector kit is all you need to achieve the perfect lighting for blog-worthy images.

4. AmazonBasics tripod – $23 + Remote – $8

If you often need to take pictures of yourself for your blog, this remote will be your best friend. Just set up the camera on a tripod, pose in front of it and click away with the remote. A photoshoot you can do single-handedly? Think of the possibilities! The Amazon basics remote is under $10 and their tripod is pretty affordable, too — a great one to start off with.

5. Artificial lighting kit – $55

Natural lighting is the best for shooting blog photos. But if you work a full-time job and can’t catch any natural daylight, you can get this artificial umbrella lighting kit to mimic the natural daylight for your photos. It’s pretty nifty and crazy good for affordable it is.
