How do they do it?

Other bloggers. With many good pictures. Sometimes on every post.

How do they find such reliable cameras and camera/computer cords?

There must be a secret..........

It's not that hard if you know a couple tricks of the trade. ;)

- Understand your settings. The portrait setting (with low depth-of-field) can realy make a subject "pop".

- Get closer. Generally close-up photos look better.

- Take advantage of natural light.

If you have "unreliable" equipment (?) then it's time to get a new camera... or:

- Depending on what your post is about, you can find very good Creative Commons photos on Flickr.

You don't even need a camera in order to find great photos to use for your posts. Just make sure the photos you use are available under a CC license.

Thanks for the tips! Getting pictures when the camera is working is not to hard..... the camera part is the big IF!

I am thinking the suggest to get new equipment is best, my real problems is my batteries. No matter how much I charge them, they don't stay charged. Most annoying!

I do love the flicker suggestion, though, I am going to have to check that out....
