What Tech Do You Need to Become a Fashion Blogger?

Blogging is one of the most popular ways people express themselves today, with more and more people starting up their own individually run blogs on a range of topics, from food to fashion and beauty. There are lots of different things to consider when first starting up your own fashion blog, such as choosing a domain name that will be a good representation of you and your blogging market, choosing a web host and designing your site. However, once you have all of the initial set up out of the way, you will then need to start thinking about what equipment you will need to create high-quality blog posts which will bring in more readership. So to help you get started, here are some pointers on choosing the right tech to help you with your blog.

Good quality, multi-purpose camera
A good, multi-purpose camera is one of the biggest and best investments you can make when it comes to blogging, as blogging relies greatly on visual media. While being a capable writer is definitely an important part of having a blog, much of the most popular content on blogging platforms utilize the more visual components of blogging, such as step-by-step tutorials with pictures, or video content. This is especially true of fashion blogging, where a high-quality camera is important for everything from shooting details on clothing, to taking pictures for makeup tutorials and creating video content for vlogs.

If you’re unsure of what you will need, then sites like can help you to find the right camera for you. Depending on your budget, you might just want to find a simple, compact camera that is small and easily transportable. Alternatively, if you would like to make a bigger investment towards your blog, then an interchangeable lens camera may offer a lot more flexibility and creative scope for your content.

Lighting equipment
The natural lighting in the environment you’re shooting in isn’t always going to produce the best quality content; while some lighting issues can be fixed during the editing phase, it is better to try and counteract any issues before you take your photos. For example, a diffuser can be great for softening the effect of direct sunlight, which can cause strong shadows in your photos. Equally, on dull days when there is less natural light, a reflector will bring more light onto the subject of your photographs.

Choosing a laptop
Not everyone will have the means to buy a new laptop specifically for blogging, but if you’re looking to upgrade, then it is worth considering looking at features which will make your life easier as a blogger. Individual creative minds work differently, so think about looking for laptop features which will compliment your working style. For example, some people work better with the option to use a touch screen (though, alternatively, you might want to consider buying a separate drawing pad appliance), whereas others prefer a traditional mouse and touchpad. Additionally, if you’ll be travelling a lot and using your laptop on the go, then going for a lighter laptop with less hardware might be the best option for you.
