How to Take The BEST photos with Your Paper Shoot

How to Take The BEST photos with Your Paper Shoot - Paper Shoot Camera

It's not hard getting beautiful photos from your Paper Shoot Camera, but we understand there might be a slight learning curve when you first get your camera and you're learning all the ins and outs of using it. We wanted to give you a quick guide on our favorite tips and tricks to getting those beautiful film-aesthetic and disposable-looking photos you'll be wanting to share with your family and friends. 

While things like lighting and filters are important, and we'll definitely get into those elements soon, you also want to make sure you have the right materials for your camera to work properly. Let's get into it!

1. Make sure you have the right batteries

The Paper Shoot Camera runs on 2 AAA rechargeable batteries. We highly recommend rechargeable batteries for not only the eco-friendly aspect of simply recharging your batteries instead of throwing them away and getting new ones but also because the camera runs much better with rechargeable batteries.  

2.Be sure your SD card is ready to go

The Paper Shoot uses a standard SD card of up to 128 GB. You can also use a micro-SD card with an adapter. If you're having issues with your card, you can format it to ExFat and you should be good to go!

3. Make sure you've got some good lighting 

The best pictures we've taken have been under the sun where the subject of our photo is very well-lit! We'll show some examples below for reference. We don't suggest taking photos facing the sun or anywhere in really low-light environments. If you want to take photos at night, we suggest using our ring light accessory to bring light to the elements you're taking photos of.

4.Understand the 4 filters

 There are 4 beautiful built-in filters for you to choose from: color, black & white, sepia, and blue/cool.

 -The color filter is a great option if you want to show basic colors that have a fading effect

 -The black and white filter is perfect for moody shots where color doesn’t matter, and the subject is what you’re trying to bring attention to.

 -Sepia is one of our favorite filters and brings a ton of warmth to your photos. It’s best to use when shooting landscapes, beaches, and sunsets.

 -Blue/cool tone filter is perfect for bringing out those naturally bright hues in a photo. Recommended to use when capturing the beautiful blue sky, snow, and water.
