Photo Tip Friday

Be unintuitive. Chop off those darling faces. And concentrate on hands, feet, whatever...

Donna Boucher said...

I agree. Creative cropping is great.

So far, my clients like to see their punks faces :o)

Leslie said...

Teri said...

I LOVE detail shots like these. Great work.

Love that collage! Are you going to print out the pages and put them into an album or get them printed in a book?

I haven't had my pictures printed in over two years. :-(

I am going to have to download that collage thing...looks really fun. And I love the hands in the sand picture. I like to take pictures of hands.

Can't wait to hear about IKEA. I love wandering around there...

Rhea said...

Awesome odd angles photography! I love it...especially the collage. You do such a great job, and I love seeing little dudes hard at work building sand castles on the beach. :o)

Donna - :-), it's just that your clients figure they can chop their own kids' heads off just fine. They want YOU for those fabulous eyes you always capture!

Leslie - 4 non-shopping kiddos being dragged thru 100,000+ sq feet of IKEA - oh yeah, it's scary!

Meliss - I hope so. But not til someday after I purchase the software :-}. I'm not interested in printed their logo at the bottom of each page. But I am thinking it will work nicely with MyPublisher.com.

I love the beach, there's nothing like the feel of sand between your toes.

Great pics, my fave is also the Hane's classic, priceless. How do you get those colors so bright? Please share.

Hugs & Blessings!

Mamachanga-
Y'know, I do have a very wonderful camera. These are the pictures pretty much as they come out of the camera. But I do process everything thru Lightroom. All my digital images seem to need a slight contrast boost and sharpening (de-fogging).
