Tuesday's Tips

Tips For Taking Photos:

1. Your Creative Eye ~
To love the pictures you've taken, it helps to know what you love. Find pictures you like, in magazines perhaps, and put them where you can observe them for awhile. Then, find what you are drawn to in the picture. Do you prefer black and white photos, or are there particular colour schemes you've chosen? Are you someone who prefers to show the location of a subject, or someone who likes close ups? On a personal note, I realized my husband loves close ups where I prefer to get the whole feeling of the memory I am trying to capture. However, after seeing his photos I realized that some shots are best if they're close up...

Giving this consideration will help you to be prepared to get your perfect photo even before you pick up a camera. Learn what you like and you'll LOVE YOUR PICTURES! (next week I'll have another tip for better photos)

Happy Scrapping

I love it Tammy. Thanks for sharing. So true, you have to love what you are taking pictures of, don't you.

I love the idea of studying the pics you already like. I think I like close-ups, but maybe I'll be surprised. :)
