Basic Technology Tips! Part 2

This is a continuation of the technology class I took at the Cherish Bound convention.

Tips and Tricks for BEAUTIFUL pictures

  • Get closer to your subject
  • Turn off your FLASH! Natural light is the best light for bringing in warmth to your images.
  • The rule of thirds. Imagine your picture has a grid with three lines in each direction (like a tic-tac-toe grid). Try to place your subject where any of those lines intersect. These are referred to as the "hot spots"
  • Set your camera to the highest quality settings
  • Take candid shots of your family doing every day things. The best pictures are often the ones not posed.
