Hi all, time for the another Photo Tip Tuesday. There is a time and a place for a creatively tilted horizon. For some photographers it is their style to shoot with a significant tilt and it can look really great. However, the general rule when it comes to the horizon is to shoot it straight. I see many horizon shots on Facebook and most of them are tilted. Actually, all of them are tilted. A glorious coastal day, or sunset photo can be ruined by a tilted horizon. It takes just a few seconds to get it straight in the camera. I think you will be pleased with the results if you make an effort to straighten your horizon.
I sent a note to a friend this week. She is someone who has influenced me for the better and I wanted her to know how God has used her in my life. In her return note to me she said she loved something I said and wanted it on her wall in her office as a reminder of God’s love. That was the perfect excuse for me to create something. I found a photo of a flower I took this summer and added the quote and printed it for her. Thankfully she loves it! In light of Valentines Day tomorrow I am sharing the love and offering it as a gift to you. Please leave me a comment saying you’d like a copy of this image and I will send it to you. Feel free to share this post on facebook too! However, please- if I send you a copy please do not upload my original non watermarked image on facebook. You can share this post and I will upload the image on my business page. Thanks so much! Share the love!
I posted this little photo tip on Facebook and thought I put it here also. I am thinking of doing a regular Photo Tip Tuesday series. So many people are taking photos with their iphones or android phones and just about everyone has a point and shoot. I so often see photos and think that one little change could make such a huge difference in how your photos turn out. So here is this weeks photo tip.
I had the opportunity to take cousin photos at the end of December. Three families, 10 children and grandparents who adore them. This is grandma’s tradition every year. Gather the kids, line them up according to age and take photos. The kids have done this so many times that they are well trained. All I had to do was say “kids, line up!” I can’t tell you how much fun this shoot was. What struck me the most though was how much these cousins love and enjoy one another. What blessings they have in each other.
