Photos to Remember Yourselves

This is a wonderful time with cell phone cameras and digital cameras. Keeping up with updated photos has never been easier. Learn to use the timer on your digital camera to be able to take photos of yourselves in hundreds of different settings. If you don’t have a timer, then buy an adapter cord to be able to step away from your camera and still take your own photo.

Professional photos in studios are wonderful, but there’s something unique about the casualness of the personal photos in various settings.  But, don’t be a person who has to take a photo of yourselves every time you step out the door. People around start getting gun-shy if they know you want a picture every time you do anything.

Also, if you read at least a little in photography books, you’ll be amazed at the improvement in your photo qualities.

Some people freeze up when their photo is taken. It shows when this happens. The person will always say, “I’m just not photogenic.”

You want to know how to make yourself photogenic? When you look at the camera, tell yourself you are smiling at a close friend. That camera sitting there is your best fried (other than your spouse). If you do this, you’ll be amazed at how much better you will look in your photos. Your facial muscles relax instead of being tense.

Also, a little tidbit: when you can, put something red in the photo—from a background image, something that someone is wearing, anything. For some reason, having something red in a photo always seems to make a photo more appealing.
