How to Take Better Pictures for Your Website and When to Call a D.C. Photographer


Your professional website is like an invitation to others to come see a little bit more about your business or your practice. You want those who accept your invitation to see you for the professional that you are and to be impressed with the information learned on their visits to your webpage. You do not want your visitors to see blurry, out of focus, or irrelevant pictures and wonder about your dedication, your competency, or the pride that you put into your work. For those reasons, it is important to learn how to take better pictures for your website.


Three Tips for Taking Better Website Pictures


You may be able to improve the quality of the photographs on your website by:


  • Taking a number of photos to get just the right shot. It is easy to shoot multiple pictures in the digital age. Change angles, placement, expressions, and other variables until you get the shot that you want.
  • Investing in the right equipment. While a good picture may be captured with any camera, the right equipment certainly makes your job as the photographer easier. If you routinely add photos to your website or other marketing materials, then you might consider investing in a camera like the Nikon D7000. You can learn more about the Nikon D7000 in our FREE book Everything You Need to Know About the Nikon D7000.
  • Knowing how to edit your photos. Lots of jokes are made about Photoshop, but the truth is that a good photo editing program can help you create professional-looking pictures.


It takes time to develop an eye for website photography. Do not be discouraged if your first few pictures are not just the way that you want them.
