I hope you have enjoyed the photo tips over the last few weeks, I have enjoyed sharing my experience with you all.
I'm going to finish off the tips this week by focusing on final presentation. As you know we have covered:
- Making sure your camera lens is clean.
- Shooting your image on a neutral background, preferably lighter in colour.
- Make sure you allow enough background in the image, but not too much that it looks lost in the picture.
- If taking photos inside using a flash, make sure the flash is strong enough to cover the image.
- When taking a photo in natural light, make sure the sun is sitting behind your back.
The next stage is placing your object face up - lying it down will make the image look lopsided and potentially out of shape. If your photographing a card, slightly tilt the card so you can see it in a three dimensional manner - this creates depth. When shooting a scrapbook page, prop it up; a book stand is a great background support (set it in front of the stand so you don't see the supports), and always make sure you have the camera in focus.
- Place your image upright.
- Create depth by slightly tilting the card
- Make sure you have the image in focus.
I wish you all a fantastic week!
