Happy Saturday! Lisa here with you to share a few photo tips. I thought that since the Holidays are upon us I would share a short list of things to catch a shot of. There are a hundred things that we always see in these Holiday photo lists, but I think I might have thought about a few rare ones. Here we go;
8 photos to take this Holiday season!
1. This might be to late for some of you (you could just fake it!), but consider taking a photo of the decorations still in their boxes. Take a photo before you put them up and then again when you pack them away. Scrapbooking tip! What are your feelings while you are about to decorate/when the Holidays are over.This could be a two page layout!
2. Holiday cards ready to mail. Scrapbooking tip! If you do send cards, journal about why you do it and perhaps to whom.
3. Take a photo of your Holiday to-do list. Or perhaps a shot of your, if it is anything like mine, very full calendar! Scrapbooking tip! Do a scrapbooking page about your feelings about what is on your list. Has this changed or are the items the same year after year?
4. Winter/Holiday gear. Do you wear something special during the Holiday season that you don´t usually wear? For me the Holiday season usually mean that we have cold weather, so I wear hats, mittens, fleece and warm socks. But it would be so cute if you take a photo of a stack of sweaters or mittens!
5. Consider taking a before and after shot. I took a photo before we decorated around our dinner table and then a shot after it was all decorated. Scrapbooking tip! This shot is from my December minialbum, I think this is fun to record!
6. This one can feel a bit creepy, but go outside at night and take a photo through the window. I like how the lights in my livingroom pops against the darkness of night.
7. Take a photo of a stack of your favorite Holiday magazines.
8. Snap a shot of a word that has meaning for you. You can zoom in on a work in a book or take a photo of a sign you see in the store or you can do as I did; set up a little place for your word to give it a little more umph. Scrapbooking tip! Obviously make a page about your favorite Holiday words. Perhaps make a mosaic of words you find?!
I had fun thinking up these phototips! And I hope that you will have fun taking photos during your Holidays!
